***It’s safe to say this video is quite old - it was made about 10 years ago! Not all of it is representative of what we are like now, but it should still give you a flavour of our church family. Our core values remain the same.***
Welcome! Whether you have just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we would love to welcome you to one of our Sunday services. We hope that the information below will help answer some questions you may have about what our services are like.
When and where does the church meet?
The church meets every Sunday at 10.30am and 6.30pm. It helps to get there 5 or so minutes early to get a seat in time for the start of the service. The church is on Cambridge Street, opposite the Kings Lane Murco Garage. To see a map and find out where to park click here
What to expect when visiting the church
When you enter the building you’ll be greeted by someone on the welcome team and probably handed a piece of paper with notices on. You can sit wherever you like.
Each service is about an hour and a half and is informal in style. You don’t need to know anything about Jesus or the Bible to attend and you won’t be asked to say or pray anything that you don’t believe.
At the heart of each service is a reading and a sermon from the Bible. We also sing a mixture of hymns and contemporary songs. We pray, we might interview someone or have a baptism or share in the Lord’s Supper together.
Look out for our Welcome Desk at the end of the service where you can ask questions about the church, pick up a Welcome Leaflet and if you would like to, let us have your contact details.
What happens to the children at church?
During the morning service we have groups for children ages 3-11 during the sermon on every Sunday except the last Sunday in the month. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we sing together and hear a child-friendly recap on last week’s sermon. The service leader always makes it clear when it’s time for the children to go to their separate groups and there are people at the back who can help you find out where your child should go.
We also provide a supervised crèche, for 0-3 year olds.
At the end of the service the children from the groups will come back in to the main room but children in the crèche will need to be collected.

Is there a dress code?
There is no dress code. Just wear whatever you normally wear.
What facilities do you have for those with disabilities?
For wheelchair users we have a ramp up to the main entrance and a disabled toilet on the ground floor. We also have a hearing loop installed in the building for those with hearing aids, and our song words which appear on a screen via a video projector are coloured in such a way that helps those with visual impairment.
What happens at the end of the service?
At the end of the morning service refreshments are served at the back of the room. Most people stay and chat, so if you can stay, do join us to get to know some people from the church.
If you have any more questions please feel free to call us or email us. We’d be happy to help.
Over the summer we spent time asking people 'If you could ask God one question, what would it be?. We then followed that up with a series of talks addressing the most commonly asked questions. You can listen to those talks here.
We are 'evangelical' Christians (the word 'evangelical' refers to people who are 'Bible-centered') and, therefore, our beliefs are formed and shaped by what the Bible teaches.
