The church is usually open for visitors between the hours of 10am and 4pm, but, if not, a note in the porch shows where the key may be obtained.
You will find a peaceful atmosphere, but evidence of a busy church life. Take time for prayer, meditation and contemplation - you may like to use our ‘pebble bowl’ on the table by the font - a leaflet explains. Prayers are said each Sunday for those whom the pebbles represent, and also for those who place them.
Your first visit to a Sunday service:
If you are not a regular churchgoer, you may feel a little daunted about stepping into church...don’t!
Despite the old building, we try to be a church for today’s people and we want you to feel welcome and comfortable.
You can expect:
A warm welcome at the door.
The opportunity to sit wherever you like - we have no reserved seats!
A folder to guide you through the service
A hymn book - feel free to join with the singing, or not, as you prefer
A message to help us all in our daily lives
Help, if you need it, whether you are a committed Christian, or just finding out about Christianity
An invitation to stay for coffee or tea after the service, to chat and get to know others
We don’t expect:
A financial offering. (A collection will be taken during the service, but you should feel no pressure to contribute)
You to do anything with which you don’t feel comfortable
