During the COVID-19 outbreak we are not having physical Sunday morning gatherings, but are gathering on Sunday mornings via Zoom at 10:30am. You are very welcome to join us at these gatherings using Zoom Meeting ID 930 514 5424 and passcode 470138. We also record our Sunday mornings and post them to YouTube later in the day, and you can normally find the recording (along with previous weeks by Sunday evening at https://bit.ly/cctadleyYT.
We will post details here of our plans to return to the building, which we currently anticipate doing in mid January 2021.
Our Sunday morning services are informal in nature, and we work hard to make them welcoming and comfortable for those who are new to church.
We normally start with our worship band leading us in sung worship using contemporary worship songs. Our worship is lively and includes singing, prayer, and giving thanks to God.
We believe in every member of the church playing a part in the life of the church. You will hear individual members talking about how God has been at work in their lives. Others will bring thoughts, words or poems to encourage others in the church.
We are a Bible-believing church, so we normally follow our sung worship with a 20-30 minute sermon, usually by one of our own members or leaders. The meeting usually lasts until about 12:00, and we finish with time together over drinks and biscuits.
Other aspects of Sunday mornings include:
Please do check the church calendar to be certain that we’re going to be meeting at The Link before coming along. There are four or five Sundays a year when we don’t meet there.
Is there parking? Yes – there’s plenty of free parking in The Link car park and a car park opposite. On arrival, please ask the door stewards for a parking permit to put in your car.
Is the building accessible? Yes – everything is on one level without steps, the doors are wide and there are disabled toilet facilities. We are used to having wheelchair users in our meetings.
Will there be communion? We normally take communion once a month, and welcome anyone with a Christian faith to join with us in that.
Will there be an offering? We only take an offering once a month, on the first Sunday of the month. We don’t expect visitors to contribute to that and there’s no need to feel embarrassed about that.
Is there a dress code? No – come as you are: everyone else does!
What time do you finish? We normally aim to finish our service by 12:00 noon, although on rare occasions it might continue until 12:15 at the very latest. We have tea, coffee and cold drinks afterwards.
There are many ways to engage with us, just as there are many ways in which to connect with Jesus through His Church. Get in touch, or connect through social media. Better still, come to one of the many events coming up.
