Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you’re welcome to become a part of a genuine local church community:
Aimed at teens and twenty-somethings, Espresso Church is run by our young people, for young people. All ages are welcome, but be aware that we will talk about young people’s issues in a way that is relevant to them.
The usual bits of church are all there – band-led worship, testimony, a Bible reading and short talk – but the context is different. We have coffee and cakes (and conversation) constantly on the go, as we sit around tables, café-style. Everything is much more informal and interactive than your average church service.
Don’t wait for an invitation, just turn up – 5.45pm on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. See you there and don’t forget to visit our Facebook page!
We ask for a small donation towards the cost of the quality materials, toys and refreshments which we provide.
The Visual Team make full use of up to date technology: notices for the week are displayed on the screen before each service and during the service the words for every song and Bible reading used are also displayed. DVD’s or video clips can be shown either as part of worship or to highlight a prayer or support need in the UK or throughout the world.
We are always happy to welcome new members to the team. If you are interested, do contact our church office.
Most of the day-to-day work of maintaining the buildings and surroundings is done by our diligent caretaker and church member, John. He is a skilled handyman, undertaking many of the small jobs for which we would otherwise have to pay a contractor. He is often helped by other church members and friends.
Larger jobs, for which there are not enough people with the necessary skills or time, are done by outside contractors. This process is initiated by a suggestion going to the Deacons’ meeting where it is discussed, and then to the Church Meeting for their approval. Tenders are sought, and these are discussed and the successful, contractor is appointed. We trust that the Holy Spirit will guide our decisions. Recently completed projects include the redecoration of the church interior and an upgrade of the central heating system.
We are always grateful to the Lord that we have been left such a beautiful place to worship Him and for the people He has brought along to love and care for His Church.
