The 9am congregation was formed in 2013. We share in the vision of St Tees, committed to the Word of God and His power at work in us. At the same time we are seeking to find our own way of growing as a church family and reaching out into our city.
We meet together every Sunday for peaceful reflective worship and teaching from the Bible, with communion on the first and third Sundays of the month.
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
Logos, for young people of secondary age.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Children will need to be registered in their groups the first time they attend. For more information about what happens in the children’s and youth groups, please visit the relevant age groups for your child on the Church Life page.
