Sunday @ SMEC

Morning service at 11am in the church building and on YouTube, Evening service at 6pm by Zoom

In the mornings the worship group sing hymns and songs of worship. There is at least one bible reading, a time of prayer and a message from the Bible. Come and join us in person, join us on our YouTube channel or contact us for an invitation to our Zoom meeting. For the evening services, we are meeting via Zoom. Please contact us for an invitation.

We love to sing hymns and songs, new and old, which reflect the whole range of Christian truth and experience. We rejoice in God because He is loving and merciful and we reverence Him because He is holy and exalted. Music is from our digital piano and is sometimes accompanied by other instruments like flute and guitar.

The words of songs and hymns and other service details are projected onto a screen above the pulpit, but there are song books available if these are preferred. (but please leave on your seat where they will remain for 72 hours)

In general terms, the preaching and teaching of God's Word is expository, that is, the aim is to open up, explain and apply the Scriptures to the hearer, with God's enabling and help. Sermons are usually half an hour long.

Communion or The Lords' Supper

Every first Sunday morning and every third Sunday evening of the month the Lord's Supper is observed at the end of the services. All who trust in Jesus alone for their salvation may take apart, but those who can't say that Jesus is their Lord are very welcome to be present and observe.

We have Covid-19 procedures in place so please listen to and follow the instructions given to keep everyone safe.

Sunday Club

From Sunday 9th May, Sunday Club will revert back to meeting in the church building, subject to continuing Government guidelines (including wearing of masks and sanitising of hands). We will regularly review activities under the risk assessment as Covid restrictions change in the coming weeks.

The Sunday morning programme is now much more action-packed with songs, quizzes, puzzles, varied activities, bible stories and relevant teaching to the age of each child who attends. We believe the Bible is God's word and has a huge amount of practical, relevant, moral teaching for today, as well as containing God's message of personal salvation and how we can know him.

Joint evening service

At the evening service on the first Sunday of the month, we join with St Mary's Summerstown and worship together.
