Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome! 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will show you to your seats.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30 am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our musicians. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 15 minutes. At this point we try to engage the whole family as we introduce the morning's theme. After this we'll share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. Our Pastor will then read and explain a bible passage to us in a way that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

Children’s ministry

Children will stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service - there is a Creche for the very young ones - we really do value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their group. You will need to go with your children to register them as part of our child safety policy.

The children's activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, prayer, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our Life groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have groups that meet throughout the week at different times. Check out Life Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Men's Ministries
  • Women's Ministries
  • Toddlers Group
