We use Common Worship but there is an informal element to the services during which we combine traditional with contemporary music, played through the Church's sound system. There is lay involvement as much as possible: in the readings, intercessions and the administration of the cup at Communion. We also meet together at the back of church at the end of the service for tea/coffee and biscuits. Toys, books and colouring materials are available for young children during the service and are always welcomed.
This takes place on the first Saturday of every month at 5 pm in the Church Hall, Hagg Lane, Byers Green, which is close to the Church. This gives people of all ages an opportunity to meet with one another; share tea and cake; hear some Biblical story telling, take part in prayer and craft activities and learn something about Jesus and the Christian faith.
