Worship

Churches of Christ recognise that worship is an important part of life. Worship is something we do every day as we give God the correct place in our lives but also something special we do together on regular occasions (for example, on Sundays).

Our aim is to provide worship which is positive, refreshing and renewing. All are welcome to share in our services. Worship is informal and friendly.

Our worship is designed to be helpful. Worship is presented in an atmosphere supported with music, prayer, scripture and teaching. Worshippers should leave feeling refreshed, closer to God, and encouraged for the week ahead.

Because we believe worship enriches life, we make an effort to create worship which is noted for its simplicity and vitality.

We want to share the good news of Jesus through effective evangelism and mission. We are not only concerned that people should find a vital faith in God, our concern is also to respond with compassion to human need, both local and international.

In the local church we show compassion through pastoral care activities. In this way support, encouragement and healing a
