We are open again for Sunday services with “1 metre plus” social distancing. Under government guidelines everyone in the building needs to wear a face mask (unless medical exemptions or leading part of the service at the front of the church). Hand sanitiser is provided at the entrance/exit and we will not be singing, as per the current guidelines.
For the timebeing the following are still not meeting:
– Monday Toddler Group
– Tuesday Lunch Club
– Tuesdays Together
– Do Pop Inn (Thursdays)
– Saturday Morning Prayers
Sunday Worship: 10:30 am each week
Our services are usually led by the Minister and often other members of the church take part. Services include sung worship, prayers, bible reading and usually a sermon (talk). We celebrate Communion on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Occasionally we have visiting speakers who share with us about other work and organisations around the world.
Musically we use a variety of instruments including the church organ and piano, sometimes supported by woodwind and bass guitar. Singing is usually led by a small team of vocalists but we also use pre-recorded music and vocals on occasion, particularly with newer songs.
Worship is more on the traditional style; we are open to using both set liturgy and the more free and contemporary.
Evening Worship occurs monthly in different churches in conjunction with Churches Together in Heathfield & District. The venue each time is in their programme and on our Calendar page.
During the period of Lent (the five weeks prior to Easter) there are united evening services organised by Churches Together in Heathfield & District held at Heathfield Community Centre in Sheepsetting Lane.
