Our main worship programme takes place on Sundays but worship is also a part of most of our other activities.
The family meeting on Sunday mornings aims to bring families to know God, and includes teaching for both children and adults; the Young People’s (brass) band play, and the Songsters and Singing Company sing during this meeting, and afterwards we enjoy a hot or cold drink and a chat together.
The salvation meeting is a good opportunity to bring new people into the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and provides teachings from the Bible both to people new to church and to those who are already Christians. It is similar in some respects to the family meeting. The salvation meeting includes the Senior (brass) Band and Songsters (choir) providing items, using their music to praise God and help bring people closer to Him.
Home League is The Salvation Army’s name for the traditional Church weekday meeting. It is a weekly meeting for men and women of all ages (and their children if they wish) on Mondays at 2 – 3pm. The programme includes elements of worship, education, service, fellowship and of course a cup of tea. In the summer there is a full day outing and a special Sunday and Monday to celebrate our anniversary. In December there is a visit to a local garden centre, a carol service and Christmas tea.
Our Over 60’s Club is an informal club which arranges a wide variety of meetings, including invited speakers and outings, as well as other activities. Anyone is welcome to come along for Christian fellowship and an opportunity to meet other people.
The Bible Study Group holds series’ of studies and covers a wide range of Biblical Study topics that is held in an informal atmosphere and anyone is welcome. Please contact us for details about our next series.
We hold a Lunch Club once a week on a Thursday at 12.30pm for those who have booked their dinner (priced at £3.20 per meal). We provide an opportunity for those who would otherwise be at home alone, or who find it difficult to provide for themselves, to share a freshly cooked meal and make friends. Many of the lunch club members stay to the Over Sixty Club which follows at 2.00pm.
These are the rehearsal and meeting times for the groups that some of our members choose to join.
