CHURCH LIFE

There is always something going on, with many activities to suit all ages.  We believe in developing relationships with people in our community and our activities reflect this.

SUNDAYS

What normally happens in a typical church service?

Visitors and regular attenders to the church are greeted at the door by the friendly welcome team.  If you’re new to the church, they will happily help you find a suitable seat.  You don’t need to dress up to come to the service.  Most people come in casual dress.

The service usually begins by singing songs of praise and thanks to God.  The music is led by a lively Music Team and usually lasts for 30 – 40 minutes.

The speaker for this week will give a talk on an aspect of the Bible and Christian living and this normally lasts for around 30 minutes.  During this time the children go into another room for Carmel Kids.  We also offer a crèche facility where parents can take their babies if required.

At some point there will be notices advising people of activities going on in the church and we also take a collection which visitors are not expected to contribute to. Following the service we offer free refreshments and there is time for people to mingle and talk to each other.

Every last Tuesday of the month @ 7.30pm we have a prayer meeting held at the centre. This is a time of seeking God and an opportunity to pray for others and to see God make a difference

Every  Wednesday @ 7:30pm there are Small Groups in three locations. The topics vary but are focussed on applying God’s principles to our every day living.

DEAF MINISTRY

The purpose of deaf ministry is to meet the needs of deaf people enabling them to understand God's purpose for their lives by using relevant language.

The Sunday morning programme has been developed to include the hard of hearing and deaf people.  We have a full loop system available and two interpreters communicate the worship songs and pastor's talks into British Sign Language (BSL).  

We are always keen to welcome anyone who is visiting us.  If you would like further information please contact the office.
