Worship & Prayer
We are a worshipful, diverse, friendly and welcoming community. We know that we all seek to worship in different ways and at different times, so we have a range of services to help you and your family fit worship into your week.
There is something for everybody at all of our services and both children and adults are welcome to join us. Why not come along to one of our services and try us out for yourself?
Read on to find out more about our Sunday, weekday and evening services. Displayed to the right, you can also find a list of services planned for the current month. These are also available to view on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
If you are looking for some peace and quiet and/or want to deepen your spiritual journey, you might want to try our Meditation Group which meets from 8-9pm on Monday evenings in church during term-time. Join us for an hour of reflection, silence, prayer and meditation. Every session incorporates some teaching and 20 minutes of silent meditation. Come along on a regular basis, or just once in a while. All welcome – no previous experience required.
