St Andrews Church Methodist and United Reformed Go back

St Andrew’s Church was formed by joining together a Methodist and a United
Reformed Church. However, our congregation now includes people from other
denominations. Our Sunday morning services usually last for 45 – 60 minutes.
Funday Sunday takes place at 9.45am on the first Sunday in each month, when
Sam our Family and Children’s Worker, helps children and their families to explore
the bible in fun and active ways. Traditional services begin at 10.30am and follow
well-established patterns with hymn singing, prayers and a sermon based on the
Bible reading for the day.
There’s always someone around to welcome you and show newcomers around, and
you may sit wherever you feel most comfortable!
All our services are intended to help us to meet with God in worship and to feel the
love he has for us. Our readings and reflections help us to understand what he is
doing in our lives and we are invited to respond with thanks and commitment as we
seek to follow where he leads.
Generally the service is led from the front of the church by a minister or lay preacher,
who guides everyone through the service. People are welcome to either sit or stand
as they feel comfortable for the different parts of the service.
There is a table within the worship area where craft and art activities are available for
children. Young children should be supervised by Parents/Carers.
During the service, an offering is taken in which we are invited to show our
commitment and love to God by making a contribution to the ongoing life of the
Church. The money is primarily used to pay for the church minister and lay workers
who help to shape our work as an authentic Christian community which seeks to
offer God’s love to the wider world through our care and concern for our neighbours,
both locally and much further away. No one has to make an offering of money if they
prefer not to.
Getting to know people is an important part of church life. It is through our
relationships with others that we most often see, give and receive God’s love.
We usually, therefore, open the coffee bar after the service. If you have time, you are
welcome to stay for a drink after the service to get to know others who part of the
church family.
Should you need any help while you are in church, ask one of our stewards. They
wear badges and will be only too pleased to help you.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
