New to Church?
Whether you've just moved to the area,
or have lived here all your life,
we aim to help you to find out everything
you want to know about our churches.
When and where do the churches meet?
At the moment most of our services are online on our Facebook page but hopefully we will be able to meet face to face again before too long ...
Times of services will then be found in the "Our Churches" section of the website ... follow these links to find the service times and the location for each church.
There is limited parking outside some of the churches but all have off road parking fairly near.
What should I expect when I attend a service?
You will receive a very warm welcome. You will be given a hymn book and an order of service booklet so you can follow what is going on and join in if you wish. There will probably be a short talk at some point in the service. If it is a Holy Communion service there will be a time when you can go to the altar rail to receive communion if you want to. If you would like a blessing instead of communion, indicate this by keeping your hands below the rail. You may of course just remain in your seat. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after some services, giving you time to meet people and ask more questions.
What happens to children at church?
Children stay with their parents during the service. If it is a Holy Communion service the children are welcome to go to the altar rail for a blessing when the adults go up to receive communion.
We have more information for you if you have …
· young children who might like to go to Supa Club or Messy Church
· teenage children who might like to join in with the ORYC
so please visit the relevant pages of our website in the "What goes on?" section.
What should I wear?
There is no dress code! Please just be yourself and come in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all!
We should like you to feel relaxed and at home with us so please feel free to simply observe, or to participate as much as you feel comfortable with.
