New Here

Who are we?

Our church consists of a wide range of different people, from all ages and different backgrounds. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome at Your Church.

When to arrive:
If it's your first visit then it's probably best to turn up around 9.45am. If you are driving then you'll be pleased to hear that there is plenty of free parking on the roads outside. You'll be greeted on the door by either a Churchwarden or Minister who will give you some information about the church and notices of forthcoming events.

What to expect:
For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience. To help avoid any worries here's a quick summary of what you can expect at Your Church. First of all we aren't super-spiritual beings, we all had a 'first day' at church, you'll find we are a friendly bunch, if you don't understand something please simply ask. We start our service at 10am with a few minutes of notices keeping us informed of diary dates etc, then we worship. Our worship time consists of singing hymns or songs and listening to Bible readings. We finish our service with tea and coffee. Our aim is that whether you are just looking into Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for many years that you should be encouraged and inspired by the morning. We hope that everyone will draw closer to God.

What we believe:
We are a Christian church and believe that all can have relationship with God. We believe this relationship with God is possible because of Jesus (God's only son) who invites us to follow him. We have friendly relationships with other local churches from both traditional and modern backgrounds. If you are interested in exploring the Christian faith then please come along on a Sunday or contact one of the ministers.

Is it just Sundays?
Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives pleasing to him. We're not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we desire to make a positive difference in everything we do. To further encourage us we organise midweek small study groups. Small groups are a great way to get to know others in the church and to be real with each other about everyday living. If you are just looking into Christianity you are welcome to come along to a small group but you may prefer to join an Alpha group from St Mary's in Northchurch, the other church in our Benefice. Alpha is a great way to find out more about God and the claims of Christianity. No question is too stupid and you'll find other people also exploring God for the first time.

For those with disabilities:
We aim to be an all-inclusive church. However our resources are limited so we try to provide for all who come along. Our premises are accessible for those with disabilities.  Both the kitchen and toilets are accessible. We have a loop for the hearing impaired (please tell us if this would be helpful).
