Although we normally enjoy meeting twice on a Sunday morning and again in the evening, currently we are only meeting in the mornings at 9:30am and 11.30 am in the church building. Due to carefully risk-assessed Covid safety precautions there are a limited number of available places each week and these need to be booked in advance. Each service lasts around an hour and a quarter.
We would love to welcome you to a service - please do come and visit us - click below to book your place.
Everyone is welcome. If you are not used to going to church you will find that everything is explained and that you are under no obligation to take part in anything. There is no dress code – please wear what you feel comfortable with. We don’t collect money during any of our services.
Please wear a mask (unless unable to do so for medical or other reasons) for as long as you are in the building. When you arrive, you will be registered at the door (for track and trace purposes) and we ask you to thoroughly sanitise your hands at one of the sanitising stations. Please make your way to your seat – you will have been allotted seat numbers and sent a seating plan by email. Please note that, in line with current Government guidelines, at present we are not holding conversations between households/bubbles at any point from arrival to departure inside the church building.
If you are unsure about anything when you arrive, just look for a ‘welcome steward’ who will help you.
We have a car park, which you are welcome to use.
Week by week details can be found in our church calendar.
There is wheelchair access and a sound loop in the main hall. We have a disabled toilet in the foyer. We are increasingly seeking to provide BSL interpretation and activities.
We hope that you will find our services to be welcoming and accessible. Our service leader will take us through our time of worship, including prayers, notices and possibly a special item such as an interview, interspersed with two or three contemporary songs or hymns led by our music group. One of our pastors will then give a talk that is Bible-based and that we can apply to our everyday lives. We finish with a song or hymn from the music group. Please note that at present, only the music group are able to sing out loud.
Watching our 'Get to know Woodgreen' video will give you a fuller idea of what to expect.
What about my children?
At both morning services we have provision for pre-school children to go for their own activities for part of the service. During school term time we offer our Young Church group for those in school years R - 5. At the 11.30 service there is a further group for school years 6 - 8 called Focus, this is currently meeting outside so will be weather dependant.
Each group provides age appropriate fun and teaching by DBS checked volunteers. Your children sit with you for the start of the service and after around 15 minutes the children leave. You will be told by the service leader where to take them, during the last song Young Church and Focus children will return to their parents, we ask parents of the Pioneer group to collect their children after the service has finished.
Our Sunday morning service is live streamed, remaining on our YouTube channel.
Due to the current restrictions we are not presently holding evening services.
Two groups currently meet on Sunday evenings:
On Sunday evenings Young people from school Year 9 - 13 meet after our evening service for 'Afterchurch'. This is a chance to spend some time studying God's word and encourage each other to keep going in our faith. After church is now meeting in person, places need to be booked, if you would like to join this group or would like more details please contact AJ.
‘After Eights' (Currently meeting on Zoom)
After Eights is our group for students+20s. They meet at 8pm after the evening service for food, fun and a Bible study aimed specifically at this age group. Please contact Abi for more information.
