Main Church Services

23 Aug 16 -14 ed1

A number of our services are shared with our Anglican friends and occasionally with all the Emsworth Churches – Christians Together in Emsworth.

For morning services the church is normally fairly full and we usually use Singing the Faith. We have a multimedia projection system installed which allows for any other songs or hymns to be used. Our Music Group normally leads the music for our All Age Worship on the First Sunday of the month and the United Choir normally features in the evening services in the Methodist Church. Members of the congregation assist in leading worship by reading and by leading the prayers of intercession.

Our normal pattern of worship is set out below. However, through the church year, there may be deviations from this so please see the Weekly notices or the Monthly News Sheet for current information.
