What to Expect on Sundaysadmin2019-10-23T15:27:57+00:00
What to expect when you come to church
We meet to worship on Sundays and at other times during the week because our faith in Jesus energises us and helps us through both good and bad times.
Sunday Morning Worship
Our principle service is on Sunday and our worship is family friendly, relaxed and informal. That’s why we don’t worry when children and babies are both see and heard during our worship.
The service starts at 10.30 am and finishes around 12.00 and it helps us connect with God as we sing old and new songs, say sorry to God for the things we’ve done wrong, pray together, listen to readings from the Bible and explore how this relates to our lives today through a sermon.we don’t have a dress code, although the vicar sometimes wears robes on special occasions like Easter and Christmas.
Words for the songs and prayers and sometimes images to help us understand the Bible better are projected on screens around the church including in the cafe area.
Children & Youth
All ages worship together at the beginning and end of our main services and children and young people leave for age-appropriate groups during the sermon.
On an average Sunday almost half of the worshipping community are under 16.
On the first Sunday of every month We remember and celebrate in a special way what Jesus did for us when he died on the cross in the sacrament of Holy Communion.
We welcome members of all Christian Churches to join us at the Lord’s Table.
We understand that giving is as much part of our worship as singing and praying. That’s why we want to respond to God’s blessings by giving regularly and generously for the work of the church.
On the first Sunday each month we have a second opportunity to bless God through our giving with our joyful African-style Thanksgiving Offering. If we are able to give more, then we do, if our circumstances do not allow us to, then we bless the offering others have brought because God loves cheerful givers.
You are welcome to join us for tea or coffee in the OneStonegrove cafe space after the service to share and enjoy being together as family.
