There is very limited car parking at 42 Reads Avenue and it is only accessible through a locked gate; please contact the wardens in advance to discuss access if you are mobility challanged.
The car part for our old building on Palatine Road is still in use and it's only a short walk away; please park there if possible. Unlimited public parking is also available on the north side of Palatine Road on a Sunday (other days - max 1 hour). Please note that the parking on Livingstone Road is RESIDENTS ONLY. Reads Avenue is one-way (east to west); there is very limited public parking just west of the church on the north side of the road.
The ramp is situated at the Reads Avenue entrance.
The hearing loop is for users with a 'T' position on their hearing aid; please switch your hearing aid to the 'T' position at the beginning of the service. If your hearing aid is digital it does not need this system.
A limited number of large print bibles are available on request. Songs/hymns and readings are displayed on a screen at the front of the worship space ; persons reqiring large print should sit to the front right of the worship space - so they can readily see the display close up.
Music and Worship
We don't have a traditional choir - but we do have a music group with singer(s); more are always welcome.
At present, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the music group is operating on a restricted basis with one accompanied vocalist. There are also worship songs played through the sound system and displayed on the large screen at the front of the worship space.

This has normally taken place on the second Saturday of every month from 4:00 - 6:00pm; at present all church-based Messy Church activities have been suspended due to the COVID-19 situation.
We have carried out a number of online activities during lockdown, however, these are currently paused.
Rendezvous is an event for the over 55s, it usually meets on a Tuesday at lunchtime once a month. More details are available on the church website. This activity is indefinitely suspended due to the COVID-19 situation.
Help for Visitors
The words for songs/hymns are displayed on a screen at the front of the worship area and music/voices are amplified using a composite sound system: a hearing loop is also in operation.
Under normal circumstances the hall is available for hire. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, this is not the case at present.
