A traditional service with music, hymns, and an anthem; Bible readings and prayers- it is usually 45 minutes long.

 

‘Hands On’ Church –

This family based service runs parallel with the 10.00 am Service on the 3rd Sunday of the month. It begins in the church hall and then continues in the church for the final part of the Service.

It is so-called as it is for everyone to join in with the activities. It is for families (although anyone can come along) and the activities are child- focused. There is a theme and there will be crafts to make, a story, music / songs and a prayer. It lasts about an hour in the hall and then 10 minutes in church.
