The Morning Prayer Service is prayer and bible readings and can include hymns.
What happens to the kids at church?
If you have kids that will come to church then please bring them. We are a “child friendly” parish. We have lots of toys and books at the back of church for them to use.
There is a children’s groups for little ones of pre-school age and Junior Church for young people of primary school age every week at 10am. The groups meet outside church and join in the service for communion. The first time you come you will need to go with your children and register them.
For more information about what happens in the children’s work please visit the relevant age groups.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your ‘normal’ clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you. If you are new to the parish say hello to the person next to you and introduce yourself. Relationships are a two way conversation.
I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.
