All our times together as a Church are relaxed, informal and welcoming. We don't have any special ways of dress or thigs to say. We expect and welcome God's Holy Spirit to meet us as we spend time with God. People are welcome to join in at what ever level they are comfortable with.
Times and dates can be checked on the calendar on the right of this page.
We have three styles of times together;
On the first Sunday of the month we meet at 4.00p.m. on a Sunday, in the Church building (directions are here), for our 'cafe style' service. On these Sundays there is no service at 11.00.
Open to all but especially relevant to families anything can happen at a Refresh service, from drama and games to making ice cream 'Sundays' or catching fish - from the ceiling ! We celebrate with lively songs, look at some great stories from the Bible and enjoy some sweet treats half way through when we break for a drink.
Children are very welcome and stay in the service to enjoy the games and crafts.

When we're not refreshing we meet at 11.00, on a Sunday, in the Church building (directions are here), for lively worship with modern songs, relevant Biblical teaching, discussion, a chance to prayed for in the power of the Spirit and generally a good time with God and each other. There is room to move or dance and on most Sundays people paint via traditional paint or on computer touch screens and ipads to visually show what God is saying and doing.
Our teaching is aimed at equipping people to live for God all the time. It is always supported by strong visual aids (Powerpoint and video) and will frequently include activities and discussions to help us learn from the Bible together. Recordings of the sermons are available here and you can sign up for our podcast here.
Children are very welcome. About half way through the service pre-school children can go to a staffed creche with a large range of toys and activities. Children between school starting age and twelve can stay in for the whole service or join in with a varying programme of videos and activities. Children over twelve stay in the service and join in with the adults.

At 'Relax' we meet to worship at 11.30 then from about 12.30 share a meal together, to which everybody is invited. At about 1.30 we spend some time doing something different, to enjoy being together. It might be games in the park, a film or a course on a topic that we want to look at.
Relax isn't a Church service, it's a time to meet with God and with each other. You can join in with as much or as little as you like. Come and enjoy some good food with good company and then leave, come just for the course, walk, film or whatever we are doing or come for the whole day. Come by yourself or bring the whole family.
On the Sundays when we are looking at a topic there are more details here. Children and young people are always welcome and included either with their own activities or with the main activity.
