Come Worship With Us

Sunday Services

Normal service times are 10.00am in morning and 6.30pm in the evening. There may be changes to this schedule for special occasions. Refreshments are served after both morning and evening services. There is a Traidcraft stall after the morning services, selling fairly produced goods.

Morning worship

Worship Centre

There is a service in the worship centre every Sunday morning, led by one of our own ministers, by one of the other Methodist Circuit ministers, or an accredited local preacher.

The Space

The Space gangThe Space is a relaxed, informal service, held in the morning on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, at the same time as the service in the worship centre. It follows a “Café Church” style with things to do and discuss, and a band to accompany the singing. It is usually led by Rev. Paul Richards or members of the Space team. The dates are given in the sidebar to the right.

Evening Worship

The first Sunday evening in the month is a formal/traditional service taken by one of the Methodist Circuit ministers, or sometimes a local preacher. It’s usually a communion service. The other Sunday evenings are more informal, often a café church, ‘songs of praise’, or more reflective (in the Taizé style for example). Occasionally we combine with other local churches for a joint service, either with the Methodist Trinity Circuit or the South Leicester Christian Partnership, which may be at Christchurch or another local church.

Café Church

Ground up in CostaThe service on Sunday evenings is often a Café Church. We gather at about 6.15 for refreshments (tea, coffee, cakes…) followed by an open discussion led by members of the church or an invited guest, and finishing at 7.30.

Youngsters

Image from ChristArt.comWe have a growing number of young people in morning services, mostly pre-school age, but all ages are catered for. They go into the atrium when they get bored with the service, where they are looked after with Bible stories and practical activities suitable for their ages. If you are visiting with children, they are welcome to stay in the service with you or go into the atrium. There is also a play area in the church which you can use. Teenagers tend to stay in the services. We also have a popular Mums and Toddlers group on Tuesday mornings during term time.
