We are now able to meet on Sundays at 11am in the church. Numbers are restricted but please don’t let that put you off from giving the office a ring and booking in (01223 320420).
Since not all of us can be there we’re bringing church to everyone at home via our YouTube channel. Please join us in worshipping God.

Here is the Collect for the Second Sunday of Easter:
for whom no door is locked, no entrance barred:
open the doors of our hearts,
that we may seek the good of others
and walk the joyful road of sacrifice and peace,
to the praise of God the Father.
An ecumenical service with the other local churches for use in the morning and a service with Bible readings and space for quiet too.
A reflective service with the traditional readings and prayers that you might want to use in the evening.
This year it is ‘Make Your Own Palm Cross’ Sunday (!) so there’s a one page set of instructions and if you want something dynamic from YouTube then you could follow this demonstration here
There is an opportunity to join in with the crowds of that first Palm Sunday during the service so do keep your Palm Cross at the ready! And if you find the instructions tricky to follow just Google and you’ll find many alternative videos and sheets.
Songs for worship this week (as discussed in the video):
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Oceans by Hillsong United ‘Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders’
Faithful One ‘All through the storm your love is the anchor’
Way Maker by Leeland This is a song we’ve learnt at Inspire recently. The song reminds us of who God is and that he is here with us. Even when we can’t see it or feel it, God is working—he never stops working.
On Sunday mornings in normal times we have two main services at 9.15am and 10.45am. We follow the same preaching and teaching programme at both services. Refreshments are served after both morning services in the Stable Room next to the church.
Our 9.15am service has a traditional ‘feel’ to it with a choir and hymns (as well as some modern worship songs). On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month the service is Holy Communion (Common Worship).
The 10.45am service has a contemporary ‘feel’ with modern worship songs (as well as some traditional hymns). Children and young people leave the service after 15 minutes or so for activities designed specifically for their needs (see the pages on our Youth Groups and Children’s Groups for more information).
On the 1st Sunday of the month we have a Mosaic Service which starts at 10.30am with coffee and all ages engage in a variety of activities during the service.
We celebrate the Holy Communion (Common Worship) on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
