One of our members once shared about her very first visit to the church: she didn’t know what to expect, she couldn’t make sense of worship, and didn’t know what was expected of her.
We realise that a simple visit to the church might be a scary experience, if you don’t know what it is about. So, we have tried to answer some of the questions you might have.
Our Sunday worship starts at 11.00 in the morning. The church building is opened about an hour before that. You are welcome to come and ask any questions with the pastor or any other member, who is there. They will be pleased to talk to you and offer any help you might require. And remember, there are no wrong questions!
Running late? That happens! Though we don’t want you to miss out on enjoying the whole service, you are most welcome to come, even if you’re late.
You don’t have to dress up for church, although some people do, we don’t have a dress code!
Our service lasts for about an hour. It may last few minutes longer if there is some special occasion (service with Baptism) or a communion - a symbolic re-enactment of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples.
After the service there is always time of fellowship with tea, coffee and cakes. This is more than a chance to try some excellent food and enjoy a cup of tea. It is about spending time together; learning about each other’s needs and sharing our joys. The church is more than a building or an hour of worship – it is a community of God’s people, who follow together in the footsteps of Christ.
Everyone is welcome. None of us is perfect, yet we know that God loves all people. So feel free to come no matter what issues you might be dealing with.
Our church consists of people of various cultures and age groups. Children have their part in church as well. We are happy to share part of our service with our younger members. At some point during the service they are offered an opportunity to leave the main worship to attend a special programme designed for young people and children. We have a crèche for the very young. Teens are encouraged to stay in the service with the adults, except when we have special programmes for them. We work to ensure that the service is engaging for all ages.
