Worship Services are currently Online Only. All sunday activities will Resume when Coronavirus restrictions are lifted

Morning Worship

Worship is about praising and giving thanks to the God who made us and loves us.

 

We do this through Song, Prayer and the teaching of his Word. We want to make our worship relevant and meaningful to people of all ages so helping them to grow in faith.

We sing a wide-range of hymns and worship songs, from old traditional favourites to modern contemporary music.

Our Worship Group leads our Praise every Sunday and comprises both singers and musicians.

Each week we meet together at 11.00am – 12.15pm for an opportunity to worship God, learn from His word and have fellowship together.

 

We have a crèche facility and a Sunday School programme that runs during the service, and it will be announced when the children can head out to take part in this.

Tea and coffee is served after our morning service and during our evening meeting. Our Services are open to all. There isn’t a ‘dress code’ in our Church; we each just come as we are. You are more than welcome to join us on any Sunday.

During a normal Sunday Service the following format is often used;

  • There is time before the Service were we can gather and chat with our friends – if you arrive early you may also hear our band practicing!

  • Once the Service has begun there is a time for announcements.

  • There is a time of Praise consisting of modern hymns and songs.

  • There is a time of Prayer and Teaching from the Bible.

  • Once the service has concluded there an opportunity for anyone to receive prayer for any need they may have.

 

Our Praise is led by our Worship Band, consisting of Singers, Piano, Drums, Guitars (Bass, Acoustic, Electric), a Tuba, Violas & Percussion.

Créche

Our Crèche is fully staffed with experienced adults who comply with strict PCI Child Protection Guidelines that is inforced by Cooke and the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.

At Crèche we;

  • Have Fun

  • Play with Toys

  • Learn to Share

Sunday school

The children come out to Sunday School after the Children’s address during the main church service. Both groups work from appropriate age groups in the “On the Way” series. Children will learn about Bible topics over a number of weeks by story-telling, word searches and sometimes drama.

The Senior Sunday School will follow the same topic each week but their activities may be a little more complicated, but of course the sessions would not be complete without craft!

Bible class

Bible class meets each Sunday morning during the church service when young people aged 11 – 17 explore what it means to live a Christian life and find out more about our amazing God.

Discussion is usually lively, and everyone has a chance to put forward their point of view as we grow to understand together how much God loves us; how He can make a difference in our lives and how He works through us to make a difference in the lives of those around us.

Cafe church

Café Church occurs several times a year.

 

I think we sometimes forget how far away many people are from ever coming to church. Café Church is all about creating a context for people who do not go to ‘church’, but are interested in God. It is about providing a comfortable setting for people to consider everyday issues from a faith perspective. It is also a way to develop a community that people are happy to be a part of. It’s church, but not as you know it.

At Café Church you’ll tackle issues such as fair trade, the environment, stress, adoption, parenting, debt and divorce, together with interviews and round table discussions. And to top it all off there will be live music, great coffee and great chat!

Café Church is coffee with a conscience. It’s a fresh expression of community, dealing with everyday issues, from a faith perspective.

Everyone is welcome – whether a church-goer or not!
