Sunday Morning

11.00am Morning Worship (with Sunday School from about 11.20am)
 
A typical Sunday morning service will involve the singing of hymns and spiritual songs which are old and new. We also sing a number of Indian songs in the morning to reflect the make-up of the congregation. The morning service is a bi-liguial service, with translation into Punjabi for those who do not understand English, however we are not a Punjabi Church but welcome all nationalities.

The worship is centred on the preaching of God’s word. The Bible is read, explained and expounded in a relevant way. Bible teaching is important to the life of the church, and we believe that a correct interpretation of the scriptures is imperative, together with relevant application to people’s lives. We believe that the Bible is a living book and therefore needs to be evident in the life of every Christian. 

After the service there is a time of fellowship, and tea or coffee with biscuits as well as other international snacks which are usually served. 

Sunday Evening Service – International Service


6.00pm Evening Worship (usually with a children’s talk)

The Sunday evening service is shorter than the morning. The entire service is in English. Translation is available through an earpiece if required, but is not part of the service, and takes place from behind a screen, so it’s not audible to the congregation. At this present time, we are able to translate into Arabic, French, Marathi and Punjabi.
 
There is also a children’s talk for younger children. During the service, the children remain in the meeting and are given questions to answer based on the preaching.

Sunday School
The Sunday School remains in the first part of the service and usually leave at around 11.20am for their classes. They begin the Sunday School with a few Christian songs and then break up into smaller age groups, where they have teaching from the Bible. They are taught the Bible systematically, so that it is covered in its entirety over a period of four years.
 
Child Protection Policy
The church operates a Child Protection Policy and all the teachers and youth leaders are DBS checked

Viewing area for mothers and young children
There is a viewing area at the back of the church, where mothers can sit with their young children who are too young to attend Sunday School. The whole service is clearly in view through a large glass screen, and the sound is relayed through PA system.
 
If children are too disruptive, the sermon is relayed to the café area where there is a t.v screen, as well as a play area for young children.
