SUNDAYS AT GCW
We see Sundays as our main meeting of the week - they're a great time for the church family to get together and the perfect time for visitors to come along and see what we're all about.
Please be aware that Sundays look a little different at the moment due to Covid-19. The information below describes what our Sundays look like in 'normal' circumstances. For more information on about church meetings and activities while circumstances remain impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, please visit our 'Covid-19 update' section.
What happens on Sundays?
We meet at Jubilee Hall each Sunday - our service starts at 10.30am but people often arrive little earlier to chat and enjoy tea, coffee and toast together. As we rent the building, we have to set up the hall each Sunday so don't be surprised if you see people popping up tables and setting things up before the service starts!
During the service there'll always be:
Singing - this is how we praise and worship God together so we love to do it
Praying - this is how we speak with God, praise him and ask him for help
Bible reading and Bible teaching - this is how we hear what God has to say to us, what he has to teach us and how this can be applied to our lives
An 'all ages slot' - this is how we hear something the Bible teaches us in a fun and simple way (this is especially great for the kids!)
During the 20-30 minute Bible teaching we have a Sunday School for primary school aged children. You can find out more about this and the other things we have on offer for kids and teens on our 'For the kids' page.
After the more 'formal ' part of the service is done we'll always have tea, coffee and cakes on offer and love to have people stick around to chat!
Join us for Sunday lunch
As a church who loves to eat together as a family, we try to share lunch with each other every Sunday. It used to be that we met together all in one home but as we grow in number this does become trickier! Because of this, we share lunch together in a few different ways depending on the week. Everyone is very welcome whatever week it might be - newcomers are especially welcome to stay and eat with us.
You can see what we do and when below.
1st Sunday of the month:
Slow Cooker Sunday
(we all gather in Jubilee Hall and share slow cooked meals together).
3rd Sunday of the month:
(a couple of location-based lunches are held in people's homes across the city).
