Sunday Meetings

As a Church we are committed to finding ways of engaging all ages in Christian worship, prayer and teaching. All our Sunday meetings start at 10.30am at the Leah Manning Centre.

Regular Sunday Worship

Our Sunday meetings have a relaxed informal style and provide an opportunity for all ages to contribute.  We usually gather around tables to allow smaller discussions and refreshments are available throughout the meeting.

We value everyone's contribution and welcome  you sharing your views, experience and questions.  We tend to explore a topic together based on a sense of where the Holy Spirit is leading on a particular morning.  This is usualy done in an interactive way rather than through a long talk.

Our worship is assisted with recordings of both contemporary and older songs,and hymns.  Suggestions of new songs are always welcome.

If you come from a church background you may find our approach a little different to what you have been used to, we hope, however, that you will enjoy exploring a deeper relatinship with God in a different way.

If you are new to church, we hope that we will be able to help you to explore a relationship with God and that our format will help you with the questions you may have.

For everyone we offer a warm welcome and hope you will enjoy your time with us.

Children's Work on Sundays.

We greately value children and young people and they will be made very welcome with us.  We encourage them to take part in our meetings and to share when they are ready, their own experiences of God, their life at home,  nursery or school and the questions they may have.

We have an area specificaly set aside for children to play, usualy with a member of Freshwaters who will help them to engage with what is happening on the morning.  Children are welcome to join them or to stay with parents - or to go between the two.

Services in Residential Homes

Each month a team of us takes a short Gospel service in Tye Green Lodge or Ashlyn’s (their dementia unit).  We keep it light and varied, with hymns (usually old favourites which the residents know and enjoy singing), puppets, poems and often a drama or sketch on a Biblical theme, followed by a simple message.  We also share personal testimonies describing how Jesus has changed our lives.

The residents are happy to chat and sometimes be prayed for after the service.  The Lord has blessed this outreach and it gives us great joy to be part of it.  We welcome anyone who shares our vision to honour the elderly to join in this rewarding ministry.
