The starting place for many people is Sunday morning church. You can discover a little bit about our meeting below so you know what to expect. This is a family church which is reflected in the vibrant accessible Sunday morning meeting, a worship centred Sunday evening gathering, prayer ministry, children and youth activities and so much more. Take a look below and please get in touch if there is anything further we can help you with.
We start at 10:30 am but you will find a warm welcome from 10.15 am. We are here to make you feel at home, we will show you around. If you have children we will introduce you to the people leading children’s work and ensure you know exactly where they will be meeting.
Our worship of God is central to all we do. We have a vibrant modern style of worship in all our gatherings.
Our amazing worship team is lead by Luke Howson.
We believe that the local church needs to develop its own songs and anthems to reflect what God is doing in the community. In this season we are developing our song writers and are looking forward to releasing their work to the wider church community before too long.
Again, this is a significant part of our time together. Typically lasting 30 – 40 minutes, you will hear Bible teaching combined with practical application delivered from one of our many excellent speakers.
We regularly invite travelling speakers and teachers, many of whom you will have heard of, and so we invite you to keep an eye on our upcoming events page to make sure you make a date with your diary for these not-to-be-missed moments.
You can also find our recent teachings available for free on our Media page.
Listening to how God has impacted lives is one of our favourite ingredients. It is unusual for a week to go by without some kind of testimony being shared by one or other of the church family.
Where possible, we give opportunities for stories, breakthroughs and good news to be shared with the rest of the church family.
This is a highly valued part of our church programme.
Our children’s work cover all ages from 2 – 11 years old with every child being made to feel welcome.
Each week there is a rich and diverse programme of activities for each of the 2 typical age groups within this bracket. They are enriching times for all concerned and are highly recommended.
We run our youth group every other Sunday during the month and they cover a range of topical subjects applicable to young people and their journey to maturity. In addition to our Sunday Meetings other activities are organised from time to time for the youth.
We take the welfare of Children and Vulnerable Adults very seriously. We are signed up to the Christian Safeguarding charity Thirtyone:Eighty (Formally CCPAS) and all of our volunteer leaders are DBS checked and fully trained in safeguarding awareness. A copy of our policy is available from the office. Before your child can join the Children or Youth Work we will ask you to complete a consent form.
Prayer is available to everyone immediately after our meeting. You will be offered simple prayer for any issue you might want support in. Our prayer volunteers are highly experiences and love to offer this ministry.
For those who might want a bit more time, or to go deeper, we highly recommend booking an appointment with our Bethel Sozo ministry. This ministry is an extraordinary opportunity to really get to grips with many aspects of your life and you can find out more by clicking here.
We also offer pastoral ministry too, and encourage you to get in touch if you want to take advantage of this.
Once a month we have prophetic ministry available which can be accessed by anyone. In particular, if you are visiting the Church for the first time, then we would love to offer you prophetic ministry.
Although we finish our main service at 12 noon there is still plenty of time for fellowship over a drink and biscuit.
We would love to meet you and get to know you so please stay around for a while and take advantage of the relaxed, informal atmosphere and see if you can’t make some new friends.
Due to the current pandemic our Sunday evenings are cancelled at present.
Our Sunday evenings are a very relaxed and informal chance to have an extended time of worship together.
Typically running from 6pm – 7pm they are an opportunity to go deeper with God in the context of a corporate worship time. For many, this time is a particular weekly highlight.
Before turning up, please check that the evening gathering is happening as we usually break in the school holidays and for July – early September. Get in touch to find out if you are unsure.
