Sunday Morning Services

Our most popular meeting is on Sunday morning starting at 10.30am and lasting about an hour.  Everyone joins in the first part of the service and then the younger folk leave for their own crèche, Sunday school or bible class.

Parents of children new to church are encouraged to escort their children to classes,      register them, and stay with them until they are settled and happy.  All parents are asked to collect their children from their classes at the end of the service.

On the first Sunday in the month we normally have an all age service where everyone stays in church to enjoy the service as a family.

Hymns and other information is projected onto a screen to make the services easy to         follow.

We have refreshments after the service, everyone is invited to stay.  Refreshments include tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat.

Communion is celebrated as part of the morning service on the third Sunday of each month and on the evening service on the first Sunday in each month.

Sunday Evenings

Our Sunday evenings service is held at 6.30pm.  These give an opportunity for more in depth teaching and are quieter and more reflective.

Question you may have

What should I wear? – Be comfortable and reasonable.  Most people simply wear casual clothing.

Where can I sit? – Unless you join us for a special occasion (such as an infant dedicationwedding or baptism) we won’t have any reserved seating. Simply sit where you find yourself most comfortable.

What’s the music like? – We have worship music that includes traditional hymns as well as some more modern songs.

When should I come?

We would be delighted to welcome you into our church whenever you arrive, although you may find it convenient to aim to arrive around ten minutes before services start in order to be comfortably seated for the start of the service.

Other activities happen in the week.  Please see ‘What’s on’.

We are in association with other Baptist churches in the area and with other evangelical churches locally.  We are members of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Evangelical Alliance.
