Worship

We hope to provide worship that is worthy of the God we praise, relevant and challenging for the wide variety of people of all ages who are part of our community.


We worship in the sanctuary, and livestream to a wider congregation, at 10:30am each Sunday.

Please note that other services are not livestreamed unless noted otherwise.

For the past 18 months our life has been dictated by the Corona Virus, and for 14 of those the Church Covid Strategy Group have been tasked with responding to the ever-changing situation. In September we held what we hope was our final meeting and in future all decisions regarding life at SMc will revert to the various teams.

We are still mindful of the potential for the spread of the virus so request that people using the premises continue to sanitize their hands and use masks where appropriate. In worship this is particularly important if you enjoy singing loudly. We will also continue to ensure that the sanctuary is well ventilated during worship.

From the first Sunday in October, we will cease to collect Test and Trace information, so another intrusion into your life has been removed.

If you require water during the service, please bring your own as we cannot put out a jug and glasses for communal use.

As life moves on, we require more volunteers to help the Church to run smoothly. Help is required to serve post service refreshments; a sign-up list is in the North Corridor. We pride ourselves in the welcome we give to everyone attending worship. We would like to expand our team of door stewards. If you can help in this important service, please contact David Booth. The Coffee Bar reopened at the end of last month initially on Wednesday mornings, for this to continue Carolyn Clarke requires a team of volunteers. Please contact her if you are available to help in this way.
