Where do I park?
There is very limited parking directly outside the front of the church. To avoid inconveniencing our neighbours, if possible, please park at Riverhead Infants’ School (barrier code available from the church sec. or administrator). Alternatively, the King’s Head is available for parking on Sunday morning and every morning throughout the week; however, the landlord has requested that we vacate the pub car park by 11.30am.
If you have little children or are elderly then please feel free to park outside the church. More information here.
What should I wear?
Jeans, shorts, casuals, suit – anything that makes you feel comfortable.
Where should I sit?
Anywhere you like – occasionally seats are reserved for special services (these are marked by a sign at the ends of the rows). Space is always available for wheelchair users (just ask one of the Welcomer Team as you arrive).
Who will I meet ?
How long will the service last ?
Approximately 75 minutes (All-age services, on the fifth Sunday of months with five Sundays, are slightly shorter).
What facilities are available for babies, children and young people?
Crèche facilities for 0-2 year olds, are available at every morning service, but if you would like your baby/toddler to stay with you through the service that’s fine.
Powerhouse, for 3 – 11 year olds, is held out in the back hall. For the first past of the morning the children enjoy teaching, worship and activities together. Mid-morning the children split into their various teaching groups (age specific).
Going Live is for 12-16 year olds. The group meets on the balcony in the church sanctuary for the first part of the morning service, and then heads out to the youth room for their own fun, teaching and games.
Is there a money collection ?
Yes there is a collection for regulars (although many regular attendees give by bank standing order). If you are a guest, please don’t feel obliged to contribute, just pass the bag on to the next person. Many people who give by standing order also let the bag pass by, so you’ll be in good company.
What other facilities are available ?
We have a hearing aid loop and provide printed song sheets. There is also an area at the front of the church set aside for prayer. If at any stage of the service you would like prayer, please come forward and one of the Prayer Team will pray with you.
What is Communion ? Can I take part?
Generally on the 1st and 4th Sunday mornings of each month the services include Communion, and all are welcome to participate. In these services, bread and (non-alcoholic) wine are served to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection.
