We meet at 9am, 10.45 am and 6.30pm each Sunday. There's no dress code, you won't be asked for money and you'll be given all you need to take part!
Below you'll find details about each of the services we run on a Sunday. Either scroll down to find out more about our services in general, or click on a service time to read a little bit about that service itself. Find out more about our terms services and activities by looking at our programme cards.
Who you'll meet
We are a group of ordinary people of different ages and from different backgrounds. Many of us are from other countries too. What we have in common is that we want to learn more about growing in our faith and living our lives according to the way God teaches us in His bible. You don’t have to be a Christian to come and see what we are about.
Refreshments are provided in the Hall after each service. This is a chance for people to catch up and meet new people. You could leave straight away but most people do stay. If you would like to know more about St Mary’s, speak to a steward (those with badges), or enquire at Reception. Please stop by – we would be happy to meet you.
Come as you are
Everything you need for the service will be provided for you on arrival so no need to bring anything with you.
We don’t have a dress code. Please feel free to wear what ever you feel most comfortable in. Jeans or suits – it’s up to you. Most dress casually.
It would be great (but not essential) if you could fill in a visitor card when you come. These can be found on the tables by the doors leading out of the main Auditorium. They help us to keep in contact if you would like us to.
No collection is taken at any services.
Our regulars contribute to the running of the church so our guests don’t have to.
Our morning services have a contemporary style with songs and hymns, a children’s spot right at the beginning (just before they go out to their own activities), prayers, reading and a sermon. We have Holy Communion once a month. The invitation is open to all baptised believers and there is no pressure to take part if you do not feel comfortable doing so.
We have a service at 9am, which is then repeated at 10.45am. Both services are identical, so you can choose to attend whichever is more convenient. At certain times of year, such as Christmas and during the summer we may have a combined service at 10am. We will endeavour to publicise these well in advance.
It's an informal service for all the family, including games, craft, fun, quizzes, challenges and a Bible talk. Tea will follow each service with sandwiches, cakes and drinks for all.
Service dates for this term are can be found on the Programme Card
We hope to see you there!
The evening service at 6.30pm follows a similar pattern to the morning services but there are no children’s (0-13) groups. Because the young people’s groups (CYFA – 14-18yrs) and (Connect 18-25s) follow the evening service, there tends to be a large number of teenagers and young adults at this service.
