What are the services like?
First, you can expect a warm welcome. You will also receive a copy of the service sheet; these are produced each week and contain all the information you will need for the service – so no fiddling about looking for the right page. You are welcome to take your sheet home with you.
Every service includes prayer, praise, Bible reading and systematic Bible teaching.
At Denton Holme, any restless youngsters can take their parents into the welcome area at the back of the church, where they can get a drink, play with toys and, of course, use the loo. It also has speakers to relay the service, so Mum and Dad won’t miss anything.
You will notice that we do not pass round any offering plates or bags; our regular members help to support church financially (either by bank order or in the offering plates at the back of church), but we do not expect visitors to contribute.
Sunday morning at Denton Holme is our main service of family worship and is a lively time of praise for all the family. The music is made up of worship songs, children’s songs and some traditional hymns, and is led by our superb Music Group. The children leave half way through the service for their own activities in the Parish Centre, where we all meet up afterwards for coffee and biscuits. The sermon is given by a variety of speakers; clergy, lay-readers or visiting speakers. We also hold regular All Age Services, as well as Baptism or Thanksgiving service and Holy Communion.
Sunday evening at Denton Holme is similar to a morning service, but with no children’s programme. We often spend time sharing things to be thankful for and asking for prayer. After the service we meet together for coffee and biscuits.
Sunday morning at Cummersdale follows the same theme as evening worship in Denton Holme, but are more traditionally based.
Midweek services are traditionally based with different speakers each month. They are followed by Leisurely Lunch in the Parish Centre. This is an opportunity to share a meal together and enjoy fellowship.
