Our Sunday morning service would normally be held in the chapel at 10:30am and our evening service at 6pm. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve obviously had to change things to adhere to government rules, and currently (as of Jan 2021) we are not meeting at all due to the lockdown. We very much hope to open our doors again soon and will update this space to provide full details when we do – please therefore check back soon!
Morning services last about an hour and will often include praise & worship, an optional children’s talk, prayer and a sermon. Activities for children can be arranged outside the sanctuary – advance notice is required to rota a youth worker and give time to prepare. An offering will be collected at some point and the act of Holy Communion may also be observed. Evening services are more tradition by nature and generally comprise of worship, prayer and a sermon.
We can provide a friendly environment for youngsters from 3 years until they are ready to join Church members in the service. We use Disney type DVDs which contain Bible stories and develop these themes using drama, music, cooking or games to enliven their learning. We divide into classes after an initial ‘family time’ which means we can cater for our young people at the level of their understanding. We make every effort to ensure that our faith has action by partaking in the annual shoebox scheme, corresponding and supporting a child in India and responding to appeals in the wider world. We join the congregation for 10-15 minutes at the beginning or end of the service which helps the children develop a sense of reverence.
For matters requiring urgent prayer such as crisis situations or medical emergencies, a number of our church members operate a prayer chain through which Gods love flows and prayers are circulated. Prayer requests are received from a prayer box located in the church, through phone calls from members of the congregation or from individuals via email. When a request for prayer is received it is passed to the coordinator who will call the first nominated person in the chain. That person will then contact the next person in the chain and so on until the end of the chain is reached and the coordinator is contacted to ensure the prayer has been circulated. Each member of the chain will put the person or situation in their thoughts and prayers for as long as is deemed necessary. While the knowledge of some situations and people will be widely known, many are confidential and are treated as such.
