Worship Communion

On Sundays, we hold a 10am service with a 'Lighthouse Group' that offers activities and Christian teaching for the children who join us. We hold all age worship on a regular basis (about once a month) including an occasional Parade Service when the Boys and Girls Brigade fill the church.

We seek to offer a mixture of both modern songs and hymns in worship. We aim to ensure that all our worship is inspirational, full of wonder, love and praise; is relevant and transforming.

These services are either led by our minister or by local preachers and ministers both from within our congregation and the wider Methodist Circuit. They will include bible readings, a talk/sermon, prayers and songs/hymns. We celebrate Holy Communion once a month and everyone is welcome to participate as an expression of faith.

The words of the hymns and the Bible passages used are projected and there are hymnbooks for those who prefer them. The service usually lasts an hour.

Refreshments follow the service providing an opportunity to build friendships and enjoy each others company.

We also have an evening service at 6:30pm, which is often quieter in format and feel — the actual style of the evening service however is left to the discretion of those planned to take the service.
