The 7pm congregation aims to be a lively and contemporary expression of Church; a Spirit led community where the congregation are enabled to grow in discipleship, and in relationships with those inside and outside the Church. Faithful preaching of scripture from a variety of preachers offers challenge and an opportunity to respond. We are committed to releasing people into the ministries which God has gifted and equipped them for whether that is preaching, worship leading or playing/singing in the band, offering a welcome or hospitality, sound desk/AV, prayer ministry.
We hope the combination of worship and teaching build confidence in the congregation to be authentic witnesses to the Christian story as they seek to live out their faith in the places that God has called them to be.
Extending hospitality and building community, the 7pm congregation always begins with a warm welcome and tea, coffee and cake, also available at the end of the service. Worship is modern and lively and there is always space for creative prayer as well as prayer ministry on offer throughout the service. There is also the opportunity to chat together at the end of the evening.
We also have a leadership team composed of members of the congregation and led by Claire Cooke, our curate.
