nativity-of-jesus-6774677 1920Jesus Save!     

 

Yesterday (Sunday 19th December) was our Messy Church Nativity, The Impossible Promise (https://youtu.be/XbcI6_rwR-c). What a great reminder of the Christmas story. And what a great display of nativity character outfits!

While we sang many familiar carols at the service, we did sing a less familiar children's song. Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves! is a children's song written by Colin Buchanan. It goes to the tune of Jingles Bells and sings of the wonder of Christmas and Jesus.

Here's the chorus:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Jesus is the Way
Jesus is the Saviour
You can come to Him today - Hey!
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
People from their sin
You will find forgiveness
When you put your trust in Him


It's a song that sings about the reason for Christmas and for Jesus. The world is not as it should be! We know ourselves, as we look around the world, as we watch the news, as we hear of the latest tragedy; this is not how it should be. The reason? The world is not as it should be, it's not as God intended it to be (just read Genesis 1-3), all because of sin. Sin is to turn our back on God. It is to live our lives as king, ignoring the One who created us. Sin has messed the whole world up, and for us the consequence of sin is death.

But this is the great news, the amazing news, the most wonderful news of Christmas. Jesus, the Son of God, left the glory of heaven, to become like us, yet without sin, in order to save people from their sin. Jesus was born at that very first Christmas to die. 33 years or so later, Jesus would be crucified. On the cross, He would die for our sin, so that all who believe and trust in Jesus, would find forgiveness of sin. And because Jesus rose from the dead, in Him, we have new life. At Christmas, the Saviour was born!

Hebrews 2:14-15, ‘Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil – 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

This Christmas, be filled with joy once again, at the salvation we have in Jesus our Saviour. And go and share that good news with all.

Hello and welcome to our church. If you are a new visitor, we have a page for you to get to know us and learn more about planning a visit.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30 am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team. 

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after our morning service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

We have an informal worship service called Sanctuary, on a Tuesday night at 7 pm. Sanctuary meets at our Woodnook Centre.

We also have a Wednesday morning service of Holy Communion, 10 am at our Trinity church building. It is a short service followed by coffee and cake. 

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the hall.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10:30 am with a warm welcome from one of our service leaders. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 15 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. We will have a Bible reading, prayers of intercession and a sermon based on our reading for the day. We often follow through a book of the Bible, or a topic/theme (you can CLICK HERE to see previous sermon series). Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, we share bread and wine, as we remember the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus on the cross. We then finish with a final worship song. There is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • Creche (pre-school). Dot to Tot is our new crèche meeting during our service. Parents must stay with their children. There will be a point in our service we’re you will be invite to go out to Dot to Tot.
  • Junior Church (4-11 years). Not currently running. 
  • Youth (11-15 years). Not currently running. 
  • Young people (15+ years) Stay in service.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. After a short time together, someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins.

The children's group activities vary depending on the age but there is a friendly welcome, Bible stories, praying, music, craft, drama and fun games. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays and church life run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
