You are more than welcome at any of our gatherings, do come and say hello, we would love to meet you!

We meet together on Sundays, 16.00 & 18.00 at Lordswood Girls’ School.  




A vibrant and lively gathering for everyone. We normally begin with worship and a time of teaching followed by a chance to respond to what has been said. Occasionally we run an all age gathering in parallel to our 16.00 gathering which continues with our regular sermon series. Do stick around for a drink after this gathering.



This informal gathering usually includes a time of teaching and extended worship. Join us for a tea or coffee before the gathering starts and enjoy a catch up with friends. On the first Sunday of the month we have an ‘Open’ gathering, where our agenda for the evening is kept casual. We want to make sure there is space for people to share their stories as we encourage each other in faith. Everyone is welcome!


All Age Gathering


We regularly have all age gatherings that run parallel to our 16.00 gathering. They allow us space to worship together, as we seek to explore together and engage with God. This gathering is creative and dynamic, there might be mess, but it’s always great fun!

Open happens every first Sunday at 18.00. This gathering doesn’t have a set agenda, instead providing an open space for people to share and an open space for God to show us how to use our time. 

Holy Communion


Communion takes place every week at one of our Sunday gatherings. 

Our usual pattern is:

16.00: 2nd & 4th Sunday 
18.00: 3rd Sunday

Part of our vision is ‘gathering together’ to worship God and encounter Him. Sundays are a key point in our week to help refresh and focus our attention back on Jesus.

Children & Youth

We run seven groups on Sundays at 16.00. These are a perfect place for kids & youth to make friends, have fun, grow in faith, and learn that they are loved by God. 

Our Sunday Groups:
Movers & Shakers - Age 0 - 2.5
Strong Towers - Age 2.5 - 4
Might Warriors - Reception & Year 1
Miracle Makers (Blue) - Year 2 & 3
Miracle Makers (Red) - Year 4
Ignite - Year 5 & 6
Pathfinders (Youth) - Year 7 - 9

On Sunday mornings our older youth (Years 10 - 13) meet in a private home for their group called Authentic from 10.30 - 11.30.

Child Check-in
When you arrive at church, children are checked in by our Child Check-In Team (open from 15.40 - 16.00). If it’s your first time we will just need a few details from you about your child so that we can register them for their group.

Read more about the Children & Youth activities on their individual pages.
