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 of miracles and mundanity, God of divine mystery and surprising presence,
sow the seeds of your compassionate love in our lives.
God of the well-heeled and the un-homed, God of the amply fed and the empty-bellied,
grow the seeds of your compassionate love in our communities.
God of the vociferous and the voiceless, God of the loved and the loveless,
may the fruitfulness of your compassionate love be known through our witness and  worship,
by our commitment to justice and our hopeful living, by our inclusive hospitality and our generous presence, that your Church may be the good news of Jesus Christ to all. 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.

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.
