When you arrive at the main entrance there will be a welcome team to greet you and show you the way. The hall where we meet is on the ground floor. We use a large screen for the texts of our songs, readings and prayers, but if you prefer you can pick up a printed booklet from the information table at the entrance to the hall. Find a comfortable seat and enjoy the informal worship before the service begins.
Our services are contemporary in style, following an Anglican pattern and alternating between Holy Communion one week and Morning Worship (worship, sermon and prayers) the next week. The leader explains things as they happen, including when to stand or sit, and when it is time to receive communion members of the welcome team guide you to the front of the hall to receive the bread and wine.
Can I receive Holy Communion? If you are a baptised follower of Jesus, and if you have been receiving communion at your regular/previous church, you are welcome to receive Holy Communion with us. Alternatively you can come forward to receive a prayer of blessing, or you can simply remain in your seat during communion distribution. We offer gluten-free wafers and/or non-alcoholic communion wine to those who prefer it. This is explained during the service.
After the service coffee, tea and soft drinks are served. This is a great opportunity to get to know people in the congregation. It’s not easy walking into a room full of strangers, but if you are a newcomer someone will usually come and talk to you, and you will soon start to feel at home.
