We meet together every Sunday for peaceful reflective worship and teaching from the Bible, with communion on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. The services usually last for about an hour, after which we have tea and coffee with an opportunity to meet and get to know each other. 9am may seem early on a Sunday morning, but if you come and join us, we would love to include you in our church family. We hope that you will meet with God and find a warm welcome.
The children and young people are part of our church family, so although they are in their own groups during the service, we also include them in the life of our congregation.
We have three groups for children and young people:
Sparklers, for pre-schoolers
Explorers, for primary age children
Ventures for older primary children and youngsters in the first years of Secondary school
These groups meet weekly, and children start in their groups at 9am, returning to join the main congregation near the end of the service, just before 10am. For more information about what happens in the children’s and youth groups, please visit the children's pages or the youth pages.
Many different people are involved in all that happens on a Sunday, in youth and children’s work, in music, in hospitality and in our welcome. We also have a leadership team composed of members of the congregation and led by Helen Scamman the Associate Vicar. We usually have Holy Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.
As the number of people attending in person has been rising (which is encouraging!), we have increased the seating on the ground floor, so that there is now 1m between rows. However, we have created additional space (1m+) between rows in the balconies, by taping off the middle rows to provide for those who wish for continued social distancing. If you have mobility restrictions and wish for additional social distancing, please speak to a member of the welcome team when you arrive, who will work to accommodate your needs. Printed signs continue to be available to collect in the foyer if you wish to reserve additional seats beside you for Covid-security.
- Communion administration will now be done from stations at the front for those sitting downstairs, but will be brought up to those in the balconies, who can remain seated. Following strong support at PCC, we will now provide communion wine in individual cups to safeguard hygiene. .
- We will continue to recommend and encourage the wearing of masks indoors while moving around, singing, or mingling, as part of our care for one another. Sanitiser will be provided at the entrances.
- Booking will no longer be required to attend church services at 9am.
- If someone in your house has a confirmed case of Covid, or you have Covid symptoms, please do not attend church or send your children to groups.
