At most of our Sunday services there’s at least one person there who’s ‘dipping their
toe in the water’ to see what it’s all about.
Here are answers to some practical questions you might be wondering about our services...
Will everyone stare at me because I’m new?
There are new people coming all the time, so don’t worry about standing out from
Do I have to wear special clothes?
People come in their normal clothes - for some that’s shorts and a T-shirt, for
one or two others that means a tie. We’re not bothered.
Will I feel embarrassed if my kids make a noise?
Our service has quite a lot of lively children, which is one reason we like it! They
have their own special Junior Church groups. And parents with young babies can sit
in our crèche-room if they like, where they can still see the service on a TV.

There is a plate for regular church members to give their donations, you may make
a donation if you want to, but you are not expected to give anything.
Is it okay to come if I don't believe a word of it?
Absolutely. Come along just to see what it's like; you will not be forced to say
things you don't mean or making any commitment you're not ready for. If you want
to discuss the faith in more depth, speak to someone after the service, or consider
coming on a free Christianity Explored Course; these run at intervals through the
What is Communion?
Twice a month the service will also include "Holy Communion". The bread and wine
are symbols to remind us of God's incredible love and care for us, shown in the life
and death of his son Jesus. You are welcome to take part if you are a baptised Christian
from any church. Otherwise feel free to watch, or to come forward for a prayer of
blessing instead of the bread and wine.
