Some key information about the church...

 

Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church meets every Sunday at 11am for our Sunday Service. Aim to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.

We meet at:

The St Mary's Island School Hall

There is limited parking available on the site.
 

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. 

The service normally last about an hour and includes a time of singing – songs and hymns old and new, a bible reading and an explanation/exposition of God’s Word.  The service on the first Sunday of the month – Communion – is slightly loner and lastas about an hour and a quarter/hour and a half.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What about children at church?

We welcome children of all ages and have a We have a fantastic programme for the kids at the Church for ages  children aged 4–18.
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together at the beginning of the service. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their group. You will need to go with your children and register them.
Younger children stay in church throughout the service – although as long as a parent goes and stays with them they are welcome to go the children’s group.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
