All In.

What will it look like?

For 16 months, being together on a Sunday largely looked something like this:

but that changed in autumn 2021! From September, some of our main church gatherings instead look more like this:

There are other services too, but what might you experience when you come to an "All In" service?

"All In" is a 45 minute service, followed by a meal or snack together. All ages are in the room together.

When you arrive, you'll need to find a seat. Seats will be grouped around tables, and you're welcome to sit with whoever you like. Please do keep an eye out for anyone looking lost or indecisive and invite them to sit with you!

We'll have a short time of worship – we'll sing two songs together ...

.... and there will be opportunities to listen to God and use our spiritual gifts.

We'll hear a reading from the Bible:

There will be chance to explore the Bible together around our tables. Someone will lead us all in an activity they've designed to help us explore the reading we just heard. This will be designed to be as accessible as possible for everyone who's listening.

We'll also make space to get to know one another through hearing people being interviewed.

Finally, we'll share communion together, to celebrate the gospel ...

... and eat together. Please bring your own meal, snack or drink!

Plus, of course, we'll have time to BE together! Getting to know one another better and sharing life together.
