FIRST TIME AT CHURCH?
We get people visiting all the time who have never been to church or not been for years, we know it can seem quite daunting! It might set your mind at ease to know that nothing is expected of you, turn up wearing whatever you want and feel free to sit at the back and just observe. Of course, you can also watch us online before you come, that might help you to know what to expect.
Our normal Sunday morning gatherings feature a time of sung worship with our live band (don't worry if you don't know the words) and a talk explaining a bit of the bible and applying it to daily life.
People are very friendly and usually, people hang around after the service to talk.
We would love to get to know you a bit better if you are thinking of coming. You can fill out a connect card using the button below and someone will get in touch shortly.

WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS?
Our DBS checked leaders run a variety of different programs
Ages 2-14 have groups that they can go to on a Sunday morning where they can access age appropriate bible teaching. Children are welcome to stay in the service as well.
For those under 2 we have a creche at the back of church with a variety of age appropriate toys. Under 2s are welcome to use this at any point during the service as needed.
We encourage our over 14s to take part in the service and join various teams. On a Monday night they have their own youth specific teaching sessions which all are welcome to.
PARKING AND TRANSPORT
We have a small car park at the rear of the church that you are welcome to use, there are also two disabled spaces with a ramp in the car park leading into the church building. Please be aware that you will need to arrive early to get a space and might get blocked in (we act like one big family!).
Alternatively, there are a number of pay and display car parks nearby, the closest is at the end of Queen Street. You can park at Aldi for two hours if you are shopping there and free parking is also available further up by the canal on Aldcliffe Road. If you have an electric car the closest charger is the shell rapid charger at Aldi.
If coming by bus the closest bus stop is outside the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
