Worship in person and online
Sunday Services at 10:30am are hybrid as they are both live in Church and available live on Zoom.
Everyone is welcome to every service. There's no age limits and there is provision for youngsters and all those of more years than a few.
Variety is the spice of life as each service is a little or sometimes a lot different from the last. The regular weekly services, which usually last about an hour, follow the Methodist preaching plan with a visiting local preacher or minister, each bringing their own style to leading the worship services.
We have a Holy Communion service once a month and a Family Service on the third Sunday of the month.
Once a quarter our services are led by Streams of Worship, these services are intergenerational, interactive and can include drama, dance and there's usually crafting activities for all ages. These services may take place with seating around tables and refreshments might be available throughout.
Another option is available once a month to worship on a Sunday between 4pm and 6pm at Messy Church, which includes a meal and activities, prayer and songs for all to enjoy in a really relaxed atmosphere. More info here
Not everyone feels comfortable or are able to attend the building, therefore we are streaming the weekly morning services through 'zoom' live. See below for more details. An edited recording is uploaded to the website, usually within the same day for those who are unable to attend worship to be able to watch the service.
