As God’s people we are called to make real the love of Christ.
both for those in the Church and those in the wider Community
Worship is the centre of the life of our church and we are fortunate to have two wonderful
places to worship.
At High Street worship on a Sunday morning commences at 10.30am. Following a welcome by the vestry Elder, the Peace Candle is lit. This signifies the need for God’s peace both in the world and in our own hearts.
Worship generally follows a similar pattern but we encourage flexibility whenever needed.
The first 20 minutes we meet together as a family before the children and young people leave for their own departments. This time usually includes a time of praise and thanksgiving and a family talk led by the Minister or a member of the congregation.
Holy Communion is celebrated every 3rd Sunday, where everyone is encouraged to join in whether or not they wish to receive the bread and wine. During the Church’s major festivals we hold a family communion where the children are invited to take bread and wine or receive a blessing.
On the 2nd Sunday we hold our monthly all age worship. As well as regular members of Junior Church and Fury this service also offers an opportunity for our brigades to parade.
With a congregation whose ages can span over 90yrs we aim to make the bible and the act of worship accessible and enjoyable to all, no matter their age, or stage in their journey of faith.
Supported by our music group we hope to give everyone the opportunity to take part by using a variety of worship styles, including music, dance, drama, technology, and other forms of creative interaction.
A time of fellowship, including tea and coffee, follows our worship from approximately 11.45-12.15pm during which our friends from the Miracle Church of God prepare for their worship, beginning at 12.30pm.
Our worship continues on Sunday evenings (except 1st Sunday) at 6.15pm and is held in the Chapel of Unity at the Victoria Centre. A modern chapel giving flexibility, ideal for reflective/meditative worship which can be transformed when full for a Churches Together in Wellingborough Songs of Praise.
Worship would normally be led by retired ministers, Lay Preachers, members of the congregation, occasionally FURY and other youth groups within the Church. There is a Communion service on the 4th Sunday, which would normally be led by our minister
