Sunday evening services offer a time to worship in many different ways. We usually gather at 6.30pm for about an hour, either in the Sanctuary or in the foyer for a less formal gathering, although once a month we hold a Praise service at 3pm.
Evening Services include: "At the King's Table" which is a Communion service; "Food for Thought" where we have a discussion over a meal; "The Engine Room", which is a service centered on prayer; & "Praise @ 3" , where we join together in music & worship followed by tea.
Within this general pattern, there is room for many kinds of worship. From time to time, we have a Taizé service or a Gospel service, Songs of Praise, a film evening or a youth led service. We hope that people will be able to engage in different ways as we seek to come close to God in worship. The evening services offer people the opportunity to participate in prayer, reflection on scripture and discussion of issues in a way that is not possible in the larger morning service.
Throughout the year & particularly during Advent & at Easter, there are opportunities to join with Baptists from other churches in our local Cluster. In addition, there are occasionally joint services with local churches of other denominations in CTWA. These are ways of building and strengthening relationships with other Christians in our area.
