About our churches, congregations and services:
Our style of services could perhaps be best described as ‘middle of the road Anglican’.
Our seven congregations (three on Sundays and four in the week) offer a variety of settings for a variety of people.
We use modern language orders of service in all our worship and try to combine dignity and reverence within a friendly and open approach.
There are small differences in the style of worship in the five congregations. The average adult congregation at St. Andrew’s at 11.15am on a Sunday is around 25. The 8am Sunday service at St Andrew's doesn't include hymns and is a smaller quieter service. At the Church of the Resurrection there is usually a robed choir and numbers are around 70 at a typical Sunday 9.30am service.
We serve (real, fairly traded) coffee after the main Sunday Services, and hope visitors and newcomers are made to feel welcome and we strive to make that happen.
Our midweek services offer the chance for a more reflective style of worship. Both on Wednesday, they are at 10am at St Andrew's and 7pm at the Church of the Resurrection.
You have a child or a baby? Bring them, they will be made welcome.
And for something quite different - 'Church but not as you know it' - how about Build@Church or Messy Church both meeting on Saturday afternoon once a month.
Why not join us for worship if you haven’t done so already!
Of course church life is much more than services - find out on this site other things we do.
