Every Sunday - 11am 

The church service is relaxed and informal, with a music band, and groups for children from 0-15 years old. We hope you’ll find church is a place where you can explore faith, find time out from the busyness of life, and enjoy feeling part of community. We try to give plenty of explanation about what’s happening, so you won’t feel embarrassed or unsure about what to do. To find out more about what to expect during the church services, click here.

 

Open house - Wednesdays and Thursdays

We open our doors, welcoming everyone in on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am until 5pm. This has become known as ‘Open House’. Living out community together, in a less structured, more relational way. The focus is on conversation, friendship, family, and practical support. We invite people to treat the church like a second home. Eating, talking, and laughing together. Being family and sharing home with one another.

I don’t have a Christian faith, am I still welcome?

Yes, very much. We have people who belong to the church from all sorts of different backgrounds and beliefs. Friends of the church who take part in church and community life include Sikhs, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists, as well as many people of no faith. Everyone is equal and most welcome. We believe in walking this faith journey together without telling you what to think or imposing our views. Just come and be yourself. Enjoy the freedom to explore faith in your own way.

 

How can I get involved and volunteer?

We have lots of opportunities for people to get involved and feel a part of the community. Have a look at our ‘Church & Community’ pages to see if there is anything you’d like to get involved with. If so, get in touch for a chat.

 

Do you have any jobs available?

At the present time we are not recruiting for new staff, but if that changes, then we’ll post it on Facebook or Twitter.

 

Can I talk to a church minister?

Yes, if you’d like to talk to a church leader or pastor, you can drop into the church or give us a ring.  We’ll try and arrange for someone to see you quickly or get back to you to arrange a good time to meet.

 

How can I be baptised?

We hold baptism services for adults and young people, so if you’d like to be baptised, let us know.  These are held in the main hall in the baptism pool.

 

Do you have christenings for children?

In our church, we don’t hold christenings or baptisms for children, but we do have baby dedication services. This means that we pray for the baby and the family and dedicate the child to God before the church. When your child is older, they can then make their own decision about faith. If you would like your baby to be dedicated in church, get in touch.

 

Can I be married in your church?

If you’d like to be married at our church, there are two ways of going about it. For couples who belong to the church, we can organise the marriage service, with music band, church minister, and registrar. If you’d not part of the church, but you’d still like to use the building to get married, then you can contact us to talk about room hire. We’ve had a number of couples who have hired the building for their marriage blessing and wedding reception.

 

Can gay couples be married in your church? 

We are an LGBT ally and passionate about equality. We are in the process of registering the church for same-sex weddings (it has been a long process!)

If you are interested in getting married in church, let us know. Unfortunately, churches are unable to convert civil partnerships to marriages in the church building, but you can do the official paperwork at the registry office and have the public blessing / wedding at church.
