What would a typical Sunday morning be like at St Barnabas Church
On Sunday we have two services;
9.00am - 10:00am
This is a fairly formal style of Service and it includes Holy Communion (Common Worship) each week.
10.30am - 12:00noon
An Informal style of Service ideally suited to families of all ages. On the 2nd and 4th Sunday there is an Informal Communion Service with children's having their own teaching.
As you arrive you will receive a warm greeting from one of our welcome team.
You will also be given a leaflet with details on the church service, Bible reading, notices and other relevant information.
You will find our building to be modern, bright and comfortable. You will guide to a seat in the main auditorium.
If you are attending St Barnabas for the first time with a young family your greeter will explain the various children's and youth activities that we offer.
The family service starts at 10:30am
After a welcome and prayer the church worship team will lead the congregation through a time of praise and worship. The worship team will play a range of instruments which include guitar and keyboard, we trust that you will find our style both contemporary and worshipful.
The words of the songs will be displayed on a large screen in front of the auditorium.
If you are happy for your children to join one of the activities, an announcement will be made during the service to around 10:55 for the children and youth to leave for their activities.
After the children and youth have left for their various activities, the vicar, a church member or an invited guest will deliver a relevant encouraging teaching from the bible. This period will include a Bible reading, prayer and possibly communion.
The service will finish at approximately 12 noon.
After the service everyone is invited to the hall for a time of refreshments, greeting and making new friends. Please be sure to share a coffee or tea with us. Soft drinks are provided for children.
We are confident that you will be made to feel very welcome.
