Worship lies at the heart of our life as a church, and as individual Christians. In worship, we are literally demonstrating what we believe is 'worth something' in our lives. As followers of Jesus, we believe that God alone is worthy of our worship and praise. We also believe that worship is not confined to attending church but includes how we lead our whole lives. How we treat other people, how we use our money and time, and much more.
For details of our weekly services, please see our Diary.
Sunday morning worship (10:30 am)
Our main worship service each week is at 10:30 am on Sundays. Everyone is very welcome to attend and we nearly always have visitors, often from across the world. At most services there will be Junior Church for children. A steward will greet you at the door and answer any questions you have.
Who can come to a service?
Anyone is welcome to attend our services. They are public acts of worship, and not just for 'experienced Christians'. There is no need to dress up or even to know anything about the church or Christianity. You will be welcomed just as you are, and you will not be asked to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
What to expect?
Our services nearly always include prayers, singing, readings from the Bible and a talk. Sometimes our services are led by our minister and sometimes by local people, who have been trained for this role. On the first Sunday of the month, we usually celebrate Holy Communion. This is a special service where we remember the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples shortly before he was crucified. We eat bread and drink grape juice together to remember his sacrifice. In the Methodist Church, anyone may join in this service in full - you do not need to be confirmed or be a member of the church. However, if you do not wish to take part, no one will make you do so.
