We’ve tried to answer the questions we think you might have before you first come, so that your visit with us will be as comfortable as possible. If we fail to answer your questions in the list below, please feel free to email us at: email@example.com
1. How do I get there?
We are at theBarn on Waterloo Road. There’s a map on the right of this page.
2. Where do I park?
We have our own carpark at theBarn and there are plenty of spaces.
3. What should I wear?
Most of our regulars choose to dress casually, but please wear whatever you feel comfortable in!
4. Who should I find if I have any questions?
Greeters at the doors are there to provide any information you might need, and direct you to the kids church, loos, creche, etc.. There’s also a welcome desk in the entrance way which contains various brochures, our weekly bulletin, CDs of past services, etc
5. What about my kids?
On Sunday mornings we run a full kids program. Our children join us for the first few songs right at the start of the service. Then they are dismissed by the pastor to their age-appropriate groups.
The crèche and toddler room, Woodlands, is at the back of the auditorium. You’ll find that the Mums leave at the same time as the rest of the kids, to chat and watch their kids play together. Refreshments will be provided and we’re working on TV screens and sermon audio. The children’s church, Kingdom Kidz, covers Reception to Year 6, and is based upstairs in Kidz Central and the Den. The leaders will walk them to their groups at the appropriate moment and you’re welcome to go with them. Once they’ve settled, feel free to rejoin us for the rest of the service and you can pick them up at the end.

6. Where are the toilets?
You will find toilets either down the corridor on the left as you enter through the frnot doors, or there are mens, womens and a disabled loo with change facilities clearly visible in the auditorium.
7. What can I expect to happen during the service itself?
The service will start with a few songs. Our music is upbeat and contemporary. The words will be on the big screen for you. If you don’t know the songs, just relax and listen. Feel free to sing, clap, tap your feet – whatever you are comfortable with. Most peoplewill stand during any music, but equally, feel free to sit if you wish.
Following the first few songs, there will be announcements and offering. Then the children are dismissed to their groups while the adults spend some time in quieter worship. This is usually followed by the message. There are usually outline notes to fill in the gaps (the greeters will give you a copy with your bulletin on the way in and the answers will be on the big screens along with the
Bible verses quoted, etc.)
At the end of the service, there is usually a little more music and the chance for you to respond to what you have heard.
We assure you that you will not made to feel embarrassed, asked to speak, made to come forward, etc. At one point you may be invited to shake hands and introduce yourselves to some of the people around you, but you’ll find them all very friendly!
Sometimes you’ll find the format a little different. We usually have communion on the third Sunday of each month.
8. How long will the service be?
Most of our services last about an hour and a half.
9. What happens after service?
It’s family fellowship time. Please join us for free coffee, tea and biscuits straight after service. Please stay for a while afterwards to give the leaders the chance to get around and meet you. After all, church is all about people and relationships, and we would like to get to know you!
