Want to know more about church? Some frequently asked questions are answered below…
What time should I get there?
It’s a good idea to arrive at church 10 minutes before the service to make yourself comfortable and have a short quiet time before the Service begins. Please sit anywhere - you will be made welcome and will be given a service booklet and hymn book at the door. If you’re not sure what will happen then please ask one of our Welcome Team at the door.
What should I wear?
There is no need to dress up to come to our Services –come as you are. It is a traditional building but there are comfortable seats not pews.
Can I bring the children?
Most definitely - we are family churches and children are welcome - children are invited to take part in our All Age services.
Will I have to do anything?
No - other than join in as much as you feel able. Going to church might be a new experience for you, but you’ll feel more comfortable with the service over time. There will be some prayers and hymns that might be familiar to you and others that you’ll pick up as you go along. Hopefully, there’ll be some words or music there you’ll feel at home with.
Should I take communion (1st and 3rd Sundays)?
Yes - if you are in the regular habit of taking Communion - if not - then you are welcome to come up to the altar rail with everybody else, keep your hands below the altar rail and receive a blessing. Please also bring the children up for a blessing with you.
What will I get out of it?
This might be the question you most want to ask! The best answer is ‘come along and see’. Whatever you’re looking for, we hope that you’ll find something in worship that helps you find God, and know that he is with you in your daily life.
