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.

 

Sunday

What normally happens in a typical church service? Our services now start at 11am prompt and finishes around 11.45 noon. Due to Government restrictions, because of Covid, we have had to adapt our services. We will have have worship but unfortunately for now we can not sing. There will be a time of pray and the speaker for the week will give a talk on an aspect of the Bible and Christian living.

Some protocols that we must now follow:

  • You must book in advance to attend one of our services, please  call 01613207308 or email message.carmel@gmail.com by 1pm on Thursday. If you book a place but then are not able to make it please can you make sure you let one of the church leaders know asap so we can allocate your place to someone else.
  • On arrival we ask you to wait in your car until one of our meet and greet team lets you know its your turn to come in. If you are arriving on foot please wait outside adhering to social distance rules until you are invited in.
  • Once in the foyer please sanitze your hands and make sure you are wearing your face mask. Face masks must be worn at all times unless you are exempt on medical grounds.
  • Please don't stop in the foyer to chat, you will be directed to your seat and this is where you will beable to catch up and natter to those seated nearby. We ask you not to walk around the building or mingle but stay in your seat.
  • We ask you only bring children along if they are able to stay seated in their chair throughout the service.
  • Please dont sing out loud or lay hands, in prayer, on another person outside your bubble/household.
  • Once the service has finished we will leave church directly. We are not serving refreshments for now.
  • We will be sharing breaking of bread on a mmonthly basis and will explain during the service how we can do this safely.

We appreciate all these restriction feel unusual to us but we believe that when we come together there will be great joy and we will experience God's presence as we  celebrate who God is in our lives and give Him glory and praise.  If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to speak to Mark, Lisa, Sue or Ged.

 

 

Fortnightly Prayer and fasting

Every other Tuesday we are joining together online or over the telephone to pray and fast for those in need. There are various ways to get involved through our Whatsapp & FB Messenger groups or over the telephone with one of the church leaders. We are seeing great answers to prayer and there is great joy in praying together for others. Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." We will continue to join together fortnightly online or over the phone to pray.

 

 

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.
