SO…….WHO ARE WE?

We are a Christian church and part of a group of churches known as the Somerset Mendip Circuit. We aim to welcome people of any age at whatever stage in their journey of Christian faith. We have been growing steadily in recent years but have plenty of room for you.
Typically around seventy of us meet regularly for worship on Sunday mornings. Evening services attract anything between ten and twenty-five people.
We have a wide representation of age groups with a strong Junior Church for the under 11’s and a thriving youth fellowship for the 11-18s.
Our worship varies from a traditional Methodist to a more informal, contemporary style. Praise and healing services have become a valuable part of the life of the church too.
We are committed to ensuring that you receive a warm, friendly welcome.

WHAT GOES ON AT THE CHURCH?

The present programme is summarised below and is open to anyone.
Sunday morning worship from 10.30 to 11.30 am
Services are led by the minister or a preacher from the town and area. We hope the atmosphere is relaxed but reverent.
On the first Sunday of the month the service will include Holy Communion to which all are welcome.
We have a strong group of young people of all ages. Those under age 11 meet in the lower hall. Those over this age meet in what is called “The Upper Room” where some lively debate takes place.
We have multimedia presentation facilities for use in our services with a sound system and hearing loop.
Coffee is served after most services so there is a chance to get to know one another.
Sunday evening worship from 6.30 to 7.30 pm
The services are often adapted and presented in a more relaxed and informal way. On the second Sunday evening each month we hold a service in a more contemporary style with emphasis on praise. The third Sunday is a Youth Service called ‘Fresh, for and led by those aged 11-25. We also hold Healing Services in which there is an opportunity to receive prayer for physical, mental, emotional or spiritual needs and the ‘laying on of hands’.
Mondays (fortnightly as advertised) Women’s Friendly Hour from 2.30 to 3.30 pm
A group for the young at heart. Here you will find friendship and support as well as an opportunity to share in a varied programme of talks, activities and outings.

Tuesdays - Parent and Toddler Group from 10 am to noon.
A place to make new friends and share the joys and challenges of parenting! Over the years, we have been able to invest in a large range of toys, rides and games for pre-school children.
It’s a good way for parents and carers to relax and to chat while the little ones occupy themselves in a safe environment.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday– Home Groups from 7.30 to approximately 9.00/9.30 pm
These groups meet in homes of members of the church to discuss, share, pray and encourage one another in their faith and understanding of the Christian way of life. Our hope is that everyone will find ways in which they can grow in faith and get to know Jesus.

Every other Friday – Cornerstones from 7.30 pm – whenever we finish!
This is a social group meeting fortnightly for fun, games, art, films or quizzes and is followed by a light supper. Again, it provides a “taster” for new members thinking about joining the church.

First Saturday of the month Children’s Cinema Club from 10 am to noon
An opportunity for children aged 4 to 9 to enjoy crafts, games and of course the film in a safe and friendly environment while parents can do the shopping or relax.

Alpha Courses – 10 sessions as advertised
These courses have been wonderfully received all across the world. They provide an opportunity for anyone to come, share a meal and ask questions about the Christian faith in a non-threatening, friendly environment, with absolutely no pressure to join any church.
