The worship includes contemporary and traditional music, Bible readings, a sermon and prayers of intercession.

Children start the service with the adults and then move to groups part way through, returning in time to share communion. We have a small play area for very young children.

We celebrate Holy Communion, which is open to all who are baptised and for whom it is their normal practice. Others (including children) are invited to receive a blessing.
Refreshments are available after the service.
