Thanksgiving and Memorial Service @ In the church (all welcome)

candles in churchEach year we gather  to give thank and remember loved ones who have passed away. This year our service will be on the 1st Sunday of the year at the usual time of 10.30am.

This is a quiet contemplative service with opportunity for reflection.

This is a very poignant service where there will be an opportunity to give thanks for the life of those who have passed on and who were of particular significance to us. We in the church recognise that though our loved ones may have moved on from this life we will always hold them dearly in our hearts. It is only right we have occasions where we can formally remember them.

As well as this the service will be an opportunity to give thanks for other occasions in our lives. This could be anything from a new birth, a new house, a new job through to recovery of health or giving thanks for new friends. There is much in our lives it is good to thank God for.

The service will take place on Sunday 6th January 2019 at 10.30am in the Church.

Note that there will be no provision for children at this service

Easter Sunday

 

Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services.

Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure.

We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee.

Prayer after the service

There are times when people need specific prayer for specific situations and do not with to ask in the ‘prayers for others’.

Norman is available for anyone who wishes prayer after the service. Please sit down at the front if you would like this.

INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

Members of the Welcome Team will be pleased to provide details of any of the topics below – they are easily recognised by their name badges.

We provide crèche facilities during the morning service.

Feel free to sit anywhere within the congregation as there are no personalised seats.

Toilets are located in the vestibule at the back of the church and also just through the door on the pulpit side of the church.

We have an induction hearing loop system, so if you need to use it please switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position for best reception.

We can arrange transport home if you need it.
