Summer Services at King Edward Road
Over the holiday period the 9.30am & 11.15am King Edward Road congregations are combining to form a single 10.30am service. The first joint service will take place on Sunday 15 July, and the last one will be on Sunday 26 August.
The Riverside congregation will continue to meet at the usual time of 10.30am.
The 9.30am congregation has a broad spectrum of people who join together to worship the Lord and encourage one another. The congregation includes members of all ages, from newborn babies to those in their 90s! Our worship has traditional and modern elements to enable everyone to engage with the theme of the day, based on the main Bible passage. We bring praise to the Lord through a range of songs, including well known hymns and popular worship songs. The sermon aims to help us understand what God is saying through the Bible and apply it to our everyday lives.
Our Welcome Team will help you to feel at home from the moment you enter the door. The children from 0-14 go out for separate age-appropriate teaching during the sermon, but we often have a short “God’s Word Says” section that is accessible to all in the main service too.
Our services last between 60 and 75 minutes. The fellowship continues as we share refreshments and chat in the Church Centre afterwards. The majority of those who come eventually get involved in some way in the running of the church and services, so that there is a strong sense of teamwork.
Three individuals co-lead the 9.30 (Ian Lewis, Sam Medworth and Will Shepherd).
