First of all, you will receive a very warm welcome from a member of the Welcome Team. They will be able to give you any books you need for the service, let you know about our children’s activities, show you to a seat if you aren’t sure where to sit and answer any questions you have.
Every 10.30am service is either a family friendly All Age Eucharist, or has special children’s activities. You and your children will be welcomed, accepted, and cared for.
We are a Church of England Church in the Central Catholic tradition (though Christians from many different traditions worship with us and we try to provide something for everyone!) This means that most of our services involve a celebration of Holy Communion (also known as The Eucharist, Lord’s Supper, or the Mass).
Celebrating Holy Communion is at the centre of our life as a church as it is the place where we encounter Jesus and are nourished with his life. All are welcome to receive God’s gift of life offered to us in Holy Communion, but we understand that when it comes to receiving Communion, some may prefer to either stay in their seat or receive a blessing. However you feel, you will be under no pressure to receive Communion if you don’t want to, neither will you be turned away if you want to receive Holy Communion.
After our 10.30am service there is an opportunity to have a tea, coffee or juice (and biscuits). This is a great opportunity to meet some new people and make new friends.
