Our family service

It’s a service for everyone, believer or not. It’s called a family service because it’s when our church family meet. If you are not used to church things (or want to know what kind of church we are), here’s a brief low-down of what happens when the family get together:

During the Service

At our main Sunday service we do many of the things that Christians have been doing for millenia:

  • We sing with joy to our Creator and Redeemer (our music is contemporary in style)
  • We confess our sins together, being confident of our forgiveness in Christ
  • We pray to our Heavenly Father, knowing he loves to hear our prayers
  • We read and preach God’s word, knowing he wants to speak to us (our sermons are expository, meaning we will go through a book of the Bible, passage by passage, over successive weeks)
  • Each month, we come to the Lord’s table, remembering and participating in Christ’s death for us.

For Children

Our service aims to be accessible to children of whatever age. We always have a kids talk and a kids song as part of the main gathering, and before the adult’s sermon the children go off to their own age-appropriate activities.

For NewComers

We also aim for this service to be welcoming to those looking in on Christian things. Every week there will be people with us who wouldn’t yet call themselves followers of Jesus. We love to have newcomers join us, so we aim to give a warm welcome to all, regardless of background. 

  • Chestnut Grove Academy, where we meet, is wheelchair friendly. There is step-free access to all the rooms and wheelchair accessible toilets on each floor.

DWELL - our fortnightly evening service

We meet in the canteen at Chestnut Grove Academy at 6:00pm once a fortnight for Dwell. The name is taken from Colossians 3:16, where we are encouraged to allow the message of Christ to dwell in us richly as we sing together. Dwell is therefore a less structured time of sung worship and prayer, with a topical talk from God’s word at its heart.

During the Service

  • Dwell is our supplement to the service, giving us time and opportunity to respond to what we’ve been learning in song, offer our prayers of praise and thanksgiving and think through the big issues the teaching brings up.
  • The talks at Dwell are a different style of Bible teaching from the morning. Together, we look at a different topic each week ranging from issues we face in our lives, to what the Bible teaches about who God is and what He’s done.
  • We want everything we learn about God to cause us to enjoy and worship Him more so we devote lots of time at Dwell to singing together, praising God and teaching each other through song.
  • Meeting again in the evening for Dwell helps us to make the best use of our Sundays to spend time worshipping God and with his people.
