What happens during a service?

It depends on which service you attend but in general, you will be met at the door by someone to welcome you. Feel free to sit wherever you like. The Sunday morning services is attended by people aged from 1-100 and is usually a lively affair, starting with some announcements, followed by some singing; then the kids will go out to Sunday Club leaving the adults to hear a sermon from our Pastor Martin, intersperced with more singing and some prayer time. Afterwards, there is tea/coffee in the hall for everyone.

Is there a dress code?

None! Come as you are. You will find some people dressed up and others in shorts and t-shirts. It is up-to you and what you feel comfortable in.

Reaching out

Is Church for me?

We think Church is for everyone but you have to find this out for yourself. It sounds like you are curious and so what have you got to lose. Why not come along and say hi. We would love to meet you and if we can help answer questions for you in the process we will. 


How do you know there is a God?

God is everywhere and in everything, including you. You just don't know it yet! People find God in different places and at different times but if you are looking then you will find him.
