What should I expect when I visit the church?


On a Sunday -

We hope that you should get a really warm welcome when you come to Smithton. There will be  people in the lobby of the church as you first come in, and you'll be able to get any information you need from the reception desk.

The main church service takes place in the auditorium of the church, and there is also a creche for babies and newborn children. We also have a quiet room where parents of newborn children can watch the service from a tv screen in a room that is both a little more comfortable, but also soundproofed!

During the service we would normally have about 4 singings of Psalms (songs from the Bible) or other christian hymns. The minister leading the service will then also read some portions of the Bible and will teach (deliver a sermon) on a passage of the Bible.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at the Church for ages 0–12. Children stay with their parents/carers at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and register them.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
