SUNDAY SERVICES

In normal times we offer a wide choice of services, from ‘traditional’ to ‘contemporary’ – with refreshments served either before or afterwards. However, things have to be different during the present Covid restrictions.

Until things change, we are able to provide both online and in-person services on Sundays – All include a Bible-based talk focused on applying its teaching to our daily lives.

Our Sunday Services are:

10am – Online and in-person – a breadth of worship styles and a limited number in the church building.

11.30am – Zoom and in-person – an act of Holy Communion with a limited number in the church building.

4pm – Zoom – designed for those with younger children.

A full description of service choices are listed below and you can catch up with recent online services here
