What should I expect when I visit the church?

The congregation is older, but you can expect a warm welcome, traditional worship with sermon and hymns and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.


What happens to the kids at church?

There is no kids programme on a Sunday during the service, but we do run Messy church, which is more suited to children, you can find out more here.


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.
