WORSHIP

Our church sanctuary is slightly unusual, being upstairs but it’s easy to find once you are through the front doors of the building! Access is fully accessible with a ramp leading up to the sanctuary. We offer a variety of ways to get involved in worship at the United Church. As well as two services on Sunday morning, we have a weekly service on a Friday morning and Messy Church for young people and their parents or guardians once a month. Being both Methodist and URC we tend to have a variety of women and men of both denominations leading our services which makes for a wealth of learning and experience.

PRAYER

God, your love – gentle, immense, unconditional – arcs a rainbow of grace to shelter us all and creates a space of belonging and healing.

Your love – grounded in reality, accustomed to suffering – welcomes the excluded, tends hidden bruises, binds wounds and remakes lives and community.

God, may the astonishing truth of your love, your wide span of hope, dawn afresh in our hearts and turn us inside out as we act on your call to share your compassion.

Renew our faith and courage that we may live as people transformed by the gospel and inspired by the limitless horizons of your Spirit. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your Name,
your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.

MESSY CHURCH

Messy Church is an after-school activity which takes place on the first Thursday of the month. It’s an opportunity for children and their carers to explore faith in a creative and interesting way.  A meal is also provided.

Junior Church

Junior Church is a place to grow as part of a loving Christian community, a place to make friends, ask questions, be nurtured and challenged. Children engage in age appropriate groups, each providing an exciting and relevant programme of stories, games and creative activities. Young people share in group exploring the Bible and contemporary issues. Most Sundays we meet in a combined key stage 1/2 group and a separate key stage 3 group. Once a month we have a bigger combined group which builds the links between older and younger children. We use the Roots ecumenical resources to link with the adult worship. Children and young people contribute to the wider worship of the church in all age worship for example.

Creche
Crèche is a welcoming place for babies and toddlers. Little ones can play, enjoy a Bible story and song. Parents/ carers are welcome to stay or return to the worship upstairs.
