The 9.30 am service is designated as 'Sssh Free', signalling its intention to be as children and young family friendly as possible. Everyone is welcome, from newborn babies to grandparents. You don't have to bring a family with you - come along and join ours. But be warned, this service is noisy! There are action songs, engaging speakers, and a band to help us sing together.
We worship all together for the first 10-13 minutes before the children go out to their various groups to enjoy teaching and activities relevant to their ages. See Children's groups for details.
The talks last around 16 minutes, often seeking to provide Biblical teaching on contemporary themes and using visual as well as spoken communication.
The service as a whole lasts between 50 and 55 minutes and is followed by refreshments in the church lounge.

11.00 am is a quieter and more formal service making greater use of Anglican liturgy and hymns alongside modern worship songs.
Sermons take a more traditional format but seek to expound and apply biblical teaching in a way that is relevant to our everyday lives.
On the first and third Sundays of the month we celebrate Holy Communion with the other Sundays being Morning Prayer.
A typical service lasts around one hour and fifteen minutes and is followed by refreshments in the church lounge.
A recent development is "the 11.00 o'clock service lunch' which takes place after the service three times a year (in October, March and June). Coordinated by Anita Ferrero and Heather Perrin, a roast is provided for all the members of the service. Entertainment is provided and the lunch forms an important part of building up our fellowship together.
