Family Friendly with Communion
The atmosphere is quite laid back. This runs at the same time as Rock Solid Kids' Church to which any children of school age are welcome. Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers are welcome to join the grown ups and we always have toys around so that they can have fun! The service itself is quite free-flowing, but you can expect most of the following: Worship - our worship is led by a band, usually with guitar, bass, drums and singers, with mostly modern music. This service usually begins with 20-25 minutes of worship. During this time, we encourage people to participate worship in a way that helps them some people use art or flag-waving to help them express themselves in worship. This is followed by a time of practical preaching and teaching. Once a month we share Communion with one another.
