    Our Sunday worship is centred on Jesus and forms an important part of our church life. It gives us a chance to get together to spend time in worship to God, praying and reflecting on the Bible. Our 10am service is open to all and you will receive a warm welcome from the moment you step through the door.

    Our services are relaxed, but respectful and include varied music which can be inspiring as well as challenging. We use a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles. As well as congregational singing, there are typically items from our adult and junior choirs and from our adult and junior brass bands.

    The Christian teaching is for all ages; the service includes a children's spot which provides fun Christian teaching which is enjoyed by all. There is also a Sunday Club for the children following the 10am service.

    To provide opportunities for friendship and informal relaxed discussion, we also offer an invitation to meet in one of our small group sessions currently held on the 2nd Friday of the month at 7pm. For further details please feel free to call into the centre or telephone 01702 716607 or 01702 476185.

    Our children’s ministries

    Within the children's ministry we have a wide range of weekly activities.

    Our singing company (children's choir) sing every week in our Sunday service and rehearse every week. Our Young People’s Band (children's brass band) also rehearses weekly and play during numerous services throughout the year.  

    Every Sunday morning after the church service the children go into Sunday School where they are taught about the bible in fun and different ways. The older children go into a cell group (bible study) where they can talk about how the bible relates to their lives. 

    On the first Sunday night of every month we have 'Only boys/girls allowed' (12+) where they can get together and enjoy each other’s fellowship. 

    On the 3rd Sunday of every month we have a 'Youth Fellowship' (13+) where members of our church invite the youth into their homes so they can all get to know each other better and have fun.

    Our pre-school

    Smiley Pre-School caters for 30 children per day aged 2 ½ - 5yrs old. Sessions run on Monday to Friday from 9:15am-12:15pm (term time only).

    We are Ofsted registered and maintained an ‘Outstanding' Ofsted report in September 2017.

    All of our Smiley Pre-School staff are mature, fully police checked and hold appropriate childcare qualifications. With a low staff turnover the children are able to build strong relationships with the staff; this helps them to feel safe and secure with a positive attitude to learning. Our weekly programme is linked with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

    Here at Smiley Pre-School we focus on developing strong parent/carer relationships and we enjoy taking time to speak to parents about their child(ren). Parents are welcome to pop in at any time; we have an open door policy. We also contact parents to re-assure them that their child has settled if problems arise at ‘dropping off' time.
