What

When you arrive at the church you will be welcomed and you will find a hymn book and a prayer book in the pew.

We start the service with a hymn and then say sorry to God for the things we have said and done that have hurt or wounded others or ourselves. We then say a psalm which is a poem/song from the OT that Jesus would have used in his worship. We then listen to readings from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible interspersed with two more songs from the Bible called the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis. There is a sermon of about 10-15 minutes and then prayers for the needs of the church, the world, our community, and those who have asked for personal prayer if they are poorly or bereaved. All this is interspersed with 3 more hymns and a retiring collection is taken for the work of the church.

The whole service lasts about 45 minutes.
