Worship

We are living out Our Calling through Worship by:

  • Different styles and locations of worship
    Open air worship + Forest Church + School assemblies groups — children creating collective worship + Use of stories for all ages + Cafe Church + Stretching people + Testimony + Baptisms, weddings and funerals + Residential Home Services + Hospital Visitations
  • Making connections
    Motivational life as worship + Praying for the community regularly + Welcoming new people to inclusive and interactive worship + Building bridges between Nursing and Care Homes to bring worship to all + Re-emphasising worship — re-evaluating ways and times of worship to fit the setting (mid-week services, circuit services, different and more relevant times)
