OUR REGULAR SERVICES
Every Sunday we meet at 4pm in the Woodside. You are very welcome whatever your age or background, and whatever faith if any you have. You don't have to dress a certain way, nor bring anything with you. And everything is easy to follow.
Refreshments are available from 3.45pm and our meeting ends around 5.30pm, when we have more refreshments. For reasons why we meet at this time click here.
We feel a deep concern to help those of secondary school age make their faith their own and be fully prepared to continue with Christ when they leave home. Children from year 7/8 and on therefore remain throughout the service, and we ensure that the songs, prayers and talk engage this group as well as those of us who are older.
Pre-schoolers and Children from reception to year 2 leave after the first section of the service, and enjoy having tea together after their groups finish.
Years 3-6/7 stay in a little longer so that they learn to acclimatize to church, leaving before the sermon.
All are finished by around 5.30pm, when the service finishes.
Of course, we are more than happy if parents wish to keep their children in with them, and want no-one to stay away because they are worried about their child being disruptive.
During August the children watch an appropriate DVD instead of doing kids@4, and there is no tea.
On the last Sunday of the month (except August), we also meet at 3pm at the Woodside for Messy Church after which those that wish to stay on for our normal 4pm service.
