Can guests come?

Of course!  We are always pleased to welcome new faces.  Usually there is a cup of tea/coffee after the service and we hope that as many people as possible will stay behind after the service for tea and a chat.

 

Who is welcome to communion?

Visitors who would normally take communion at their home church are welcome to share communion with us.  If you would prefer not to take the bread and wine you simply pass it to the person beside you.

 

Is the building accessible by people who use wheelchairs?

Yes, there is level access at the side door.  There is a toilet with facilities for wheelchair users.

 

Is there a nursery or other activities for small children?

Babies and toddlers are very welcome in the service.  Alternatively, babies and toddlers are well cared for at the crèche in the small hall through the back of the church.  Provision is made in the crèche room to hear the service.

 

Where should I sit?

You can sit anywhere you like in the church.  In the evening services we normally use just the downstairs.

 

Do I have to give money?

You will see an offering plate in the lobby.  Members and regular attenders contribute financially to the church, but there is no pressure put on visitors to contribute to the church.

 

Will I be able to hear?

The church is fitted with a PA system so everyone can hear no matter where they sit.  There is also a loop system for those with a hearing aid.

 

What do I wear?

There is no dress code so wear whatever feels comfortable.  Most people wear smart-casual but suits or more casual clothes are not unusual.

 

What about toilets?

The toilets are situated through by the small hall.  There are baby changing facilities and there is a toilet suitable for wheelchair access.

 

What if I live too far and don't have a car?

Please contact us (minister or anyone else).  We can arrange for someone to help provide transport to those that need it.  Please give us as much notice as you can though.
