A larger Sunday Service with teaching, children's provision, worship and refreshments! Up to 300 people of all ages gather each Sunday at Chatsmore High School for our 10.30am Morning Service. You'll be greeted at the door and can visit the Welcome Centre to find out more - or if you prefer you can remain anonymous and just check us out. The service usually starts with some sung worship led by a band, and the words are up on a screen. Children and younger teenagers remain in the service for the first part and then go off to their various groups around the building where they will be looked after by our teams of volunteer teachers and helpers, who have all been CRB checked.
Sometimes we watch video clips, interview someone (pre-arranged - not visitors!) and find out what's going on in the community for the week. Then we might have some more sung worship and a reading from the Bible usually features here, along with a time of prayer for situations around the world or closer to home. We take up an offering but this is for regular attenders and not our guests.
Then we have the teaching session led by Andy Hickford our Senior Minister, unless we have a guest speaker. They will base their teaching on the Bible and apply that to our lives today. This part usually lasts around 25 minutes - well, usually....
We end with another song, or sometimes communion (also known as the Eucharist or Lord's Supper in other churches). If you want to ask for prayer, we have people available to pray with you in the Prayer Zone after the service. Alternatively you can join us for coffee and a chance to get to know people. The children's groups finish at the same time as the service, so you can collect any children from their groups.
The whole service generally lasts for 1 hour 15 minutes. Informal, fun, thought provoking. If you are looking for a church in Worthing - why not come along to this service and give it a try?
