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.
Can I bring the children?
Most definitely - we are family churches and children are welcome - we run a Sunday Club at the 9 30am Parish Communion service, and children are invited to take an active part in our monthly All Age service.
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. There’s a range of prayers and music to express different styles of worship and different approaches to God. Hopefully, there’ll be some words or music there you’ll feel at home with.
Should I take communion?
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’. The church at Watton has a variety of modern and traditional services in a beautiful historic
