Worship

We normally meet for Sunday worship at 10.45am and 6.30pm, and in the evenings occasionally share with St John’s Church of England in Norley in joint worship.

Once a month, usually on the 3rd Sunday, there is an informal time of worship, sharing and learning that we call Norley@9. This lasts about 45 minutes and includes activities for all age groups: there is no sermon!

On all other Sundays, the Sunday School meet at the same time as Morning Worship and shares in a short part of it. The Sunday School provides for all ages and a Creche can be arrange for the under 3s, according to the needs at the time.

We share in Holy Communion twice per month, once as part of the morning service (2nd Sunday in the month) and once in the evening (4th Sunday in the month) when all are welcome to share fully in the celebration. The children and young people join us at Morning Communion, participating as fully as parents (and perhaps, they) wish. Dates are given on the quarterly Circuit Preaching Plan.

We celebrate the great Christian Festivals with special acts of worship as well as our own Church Anniversary in April or May.

We are served by the ministers and local preachers of the Chester and Delamere Forest Methodist Circuit, of which we are part, as well as by visiting preachers on some occasions. Also, about four times a year, the church’s Spiritual Committee arranges a special morning or evening service in which many people take an active part.

The church is of course available for the community at all times, both happy and sad. Arrangements can always be made for baptisms, marriages, funerals and other services of celebration and thanksgiving which people may request.
