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

Christmas Revealed:
We continue to use the prayers from the final week of our Advent Angels, Christmas Revealed booklet.
Heavenly father, you know the secrets of our hearts, you know better than we know ourselves what will make us whole; help us to follow the star that will lead us to you.
Give us perseverance in our quest and the belief that you are always with us, guiding us on our way.
We pray for all who may be regarded as outcasts, or on the edges, in our society, all who feel alone or abandoned or afraid. Give us eyes to see and loving hearts to care.
We stand amazed in awe and wonder as we recognise that you, creator of all that is, care about ordinary people like us.
We thank you for the message of the angels – that you sent your son, Jesus, to be our saviour and friend, to bring meaning and hope into our lives.
May we have the courage to bring your good news to others, to share in our lives and our words what it means to know that we are so loved by God that he sent his only son to be with us as our saviour and friend

The Lords 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.

your Kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

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.
