The communion rail is central to the church.

Numbers attending worship: This can vary but generally there are between 40-50 people many of whom are 50+.  Approximately 25 attend the evening service.

Worship style: The worship style is fairly traditional with a willingness to try new things.

Music & Liturgy: Hymns & Psalms is available as well as Songs of Fellowship and our own Songbook. Bibles, Hymns & Psalms, Songs of Fellowship are found on the seats.  There is a morning and evening organist and on occasion we have an organ that plays with discs.

Media: Most weeks the hymns and the bible passages are normally projected on to a screen.  There is a loop system and a radio microphone for the preacher to use.  There are also facilities to use CD music and we have a licence to play snippets of films during worship as well as a CCL licence for words to Hymns/Worship Songs

Participation: A bible reading rota is in operation and the church secretary will find a reader.  Service information will be included in the letter that is sent out to the preachers.

Children & Young People: The numbers that attend worship varies considerably age ranging from 3-10.  They normally leave for Junior Church after the 2nd Hymn or Worship Song(s).  Normally the preacher is asked to lead a short children’s address before they leave for Junior Church.  At present the Junior Church uses ‘Roots’ material.
