Sundays

10:30AM 

Holiness Meeting 

Throughout 2018 our theme for our morning worship is Discipleship. This meeting is our more traditional Salvation Army service with our senior band and songsters both aiding our worship alongside active participation from our YP sections. These meetings are designed to be family friendly and appropriate for all ages and open levels of faith.

Sunday school is run for children at primary school during the 10:30 service, which includes age appropriate activities and worship.

12:00PM 

Open air at the triangle by Tesco led by our senior band.

5:30PM  

Our evening meeting follows a mixture of formats from prayer and testimony services to youth led worship. These services tend to be more spirit led and are more informal in style.

Bold Corps Cadets is run for young people aged 11-18 during both services, this includes a mix of worship, prayer and discussion around topics that matter to teenagers in today's world.
