Perhaps you are wondering what it might be like to come along to West Street on a Sunday morning and would like to know what actually happens.
A few people start arriving from 9.30 to set up ready for the morning service. At about 10.20 a.m. there is a short prayer meeting to pray for the morning before the service starts at 10.30 a.m.
A warm welcome will always be given and we’ll open our service with a bible reading and prayer before some more worship songs, including one particularly chosen for the children and often a talk specifically aimed at the children. Songs are mainly chosen from Songs of Fellowship books and include older hymns, choruses for children, and contemporary Christian worship songs. The lyrics are displayed on a screen. People are welcome to stand or sit to worship. Music is led by the worship group – a singer and pianist are joined sometimes by a saxophonist and violinist.
Junior Church for 4 to 11 year olds starts part way through the service and is held in the church hall running alongside the main church. Activities will include a bible passage with games, craft, memory verse, songs, etc. This happens all year round EXCEPT during the summer school holidays.
The service will always include prayers and a sermon of around 30 to 40 minutes. The sermon is recorded and made available on the church website. Our pastor preaches most Sunday mornings, usually focusing for a few months on a particular book of the Old or New Testament. We are currently working through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and will then move to Genesis (from June 2023).
Communion for believers is celebrated once a month during the regular service on the second Sunday of the month and also on the fourth Thursday of the month at an 8.00 p.m. evening service.
We support Serving in Mission [SIM], ZimKids, and Sutton Schools Work in prayer times and financially.
During the year we have special services as we celebrate together – these include harvest, church anniversary, nativity, carol service, Easter celebrations.
We usually close the morning around 12.00 p.m. and coffee and tea is served afterwards so we can catch up with one another.
We would love to tell you more – please join us one Sunday soon. You might have questions that we have not answered here so please do contact us via the email at the contact section and we will be in touch soon.
