Morning Service at 10.30am
We continue our series on growth in the church, aided by two speakers from the diocese and Phil Rugg, one of the mission partners we support as a church. In Lent we will begin a short new series when we think about God’s signs and wonders during the wilderness wanderings of the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land. The Israelite faced difficulties in their journey to the Promised Land. How will we respond as we seek to trust God’s provision in the difficult times we face?
Our children and their leaders have suggested that they will be involved in All-Age services on special occasions, such as Lent. At the start of half term on 17th February and during the Easter school holiday on 7th April (Mothering Sunday) and 14th April (Palm Sunday) we will have some activities and participation for all, but they will not necessarily be a full All-Age services - something we call All-Age light.
On the second Sunday when we have Holy Communion the children and young people will start in their groups and join us for the Communion circle and the last part of the service. We will continue to look at Jesus’ “I am” sayings. There will be no Communion service in April as this clashes with our AGM.
Holy Communion @10.30am (Second Sunday of each month)
During this term the theme for Holy Communion sermon series is the ‘I am’ statements of Jesus recorded in the gospel of John.
On the second Sunday when we have Holy Communion the children and young people will continue to start in their relevant age groups and join us for the Communion circle and the last part of the service. There will be an opportunity for the children and young people to share what they have done in their groups during this time.
Evening Service at 6.30pm
In January and February we will continue to look at the final section of the Sermon on the Mount. During the weeks in Lent as we approach Easter, we will look at a selection of prophecies in the Old Testament that Jesus fulfils and how these passages can still speak to us now in the 21st Century as we reflect on the plan and purposes of God.
Café Style Church takes place on the
second Sunday evening of the month. These evenings are interactive with an
opportunity to talk amongst ourselves as well as a question and answer time
with the speaker for the evening.

Children's join the main congregation for communion after their groups each second Sunday. Groups do not meet on All-age service Sundays.
Each week there is a Creche room for children up to school age.
CYFA (14 to 18 year olds) meet in the CYFA room upstairs in the Church Centre after the evening service (usually from around 8.00pm until 9.30pm).
