Services.

Meeting together for worship, communion, prayer, chat and more!
The building we meet in

 

There are currently four different meeting options, which are running until at least August 2022, when service patterns will be reviewed: 

Sundays

Morning services at 9.30am and 11.30am

"The Evening Service" at 6.30pm

 

Alternate Thursdays

"Word & Song" at 8pm

It's no longer necessary to book your space at any of the meetings – you can simply turn up. However, on weeks when Citykids groups are running (alternate weeks), please book any under-11s in your care into their group(s).

Sunday mornings.

9.30am + 11.30am

There are two different service types on a Sunday morning, which alternate. Both service styles will be followed by everyone coming together in the main hall for a meal/snack/drink (please bring your own!).

"All In" Services.

These services see all ages in one room together. Everyone sits around tables and the service contains a short session of sung worship, space to use our gifts, an interview, and communion, as well as chance to explore the Bible together at our tables through a Bible-based activity.

What an "All In" service looks like

Service + Citykids.

On these weeks, the children will go straight into age-appropriate groups for Bible teaching, worship, prayer, fun and games. Everyone else will be in the main hall for extended Bible teaching, worship and communion. Please book any under-11s in your care into the appropriate group for them.

 

Sunday evenings.

"The Evening Service" – 6.30pm


This service will be similar to what we used to do (pre-covid) on a Sunday morning (but without children’s work or youth work). There will be more time for worship (perhaps even a band!), teaching, communion and ministry.

There is a Zoom stream from our in-person meetings, which broadcasts the sermon and the start of the worship. If you'd like the details to access this, please get in touch.

Alternate Thursday evenings.

"Word+Song" – 8pm


This will be a simple time of teaching (a repeat of the sermon from the previous Sunday Evening Service) and sung worship. Doors will open at 7.45pm for an 8pm start.​

Word+Song dates for this term are: 

April: 28th (Week of Prayer)

May: 12th, 26th

June: 9th, 23rd

July: 7th, 21st

August: 4th

Singing.

"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs."

Psalm 100: 1-2


In every culture, music and singing is used to celebrate and express happiness and jubilation. Each service contains chance to sing a few songs together, celebrating and exploring our faith.

Learning together.

We are committed to reading and understanding the Bible together. We unpack the words of the Bible in order to help us follow Jesus and apply his message to our lives. At "All In" services, we do this together as a group round our tables. Services with Citykids groups and evening services have a 20-30 minute talk from one of our preachers. There is also additional content (mainly through our InConvo podcast) for anyone who wants to dig deeper to listen to at their leisure. You can listen to previous talks and episodes of InConvo via the "Recordings" page of this website.

Communion.

And he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, gave it to them, and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way he also took the cup after supper and said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you." 
Luke 22:19-20


Jesus taught us to remember his death by eating bread and drinking wine, representing his body and blood. We call this simple meal communion. Every Sunday we eat this meal as we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection and look forward to the day he returns. Single-serve portions of communion (a wafer/biscuit (GF option available) and some non-alcoholic wine) are provided at all Sunday services and we take communion as part of our time together.

Socialising.

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…"
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Please don’t feel the need to rush off at the end – we would like to get to know you.

The morning services are followed by a snack/drink/meal together. Please bring a drink, packed lunch or a snack to enjoy as you chat to the people around you.

 

At the moment, there's no tea, coffee or biscuits after the evening services, but do stick around to get to know the other people at the service. This is an important part of belonging to a church community – we look out for each other and make new friends.
