We know that being the new person can be difficult so this page will help to explain what you are getting yourself into. Hopefully after hearing a bit about what we are like, it won’t seem so scary and you will be excited to join us.
The worship includes a blend of contemporary and traditional hymns and songs led by a music group and / or organ with words projected on a screen, prayers – mostly led from the front, readings from the Bible, and teaching.
We start with everyone together then there are groups for under 11s (11-18s meet on Sunday afternoons at 4.00). There is an attended crèche for under 3s but if your baby is very young and you would prefer to stay in the service, there is a carpeted area with toys at the back of the church where you are welcome to sit if they need a bit more attention than you can give in your seat.
If you need anything else, please ask.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
Broadway put great emphasis on hospitality so on a Sunday morning there will be people at the door to greet and answer any questions you may have. If you are bringing children, you will be introduced to Amy, our youth and children’s worker or another leader who is on for
We don’t have a dress code, just wear what you feel comfortable in. Some people choose to wear something casual while others wear their Sunday best, we don’t mind either way.
WHAT ABOUT MONEY?
Since lockdown, we no longer take up an offering during the service as most people who are regular now give financially by standing order as part of their own discipleship and commitment to the fellowship.
There is no compulsion to contribute as a visitor but, there is a box at the back where people can place offerings if they wish. We give thanks for all our offerings during the service.
AFTER THE MORNING SERVICE
After the service there are refreshments (often including cake!). This is an important part of our worship together too as we can chat, get to know one another, ask any questions and some ask for prayer.
WHAT ABOUT AN EVENING SERVICE?
There is no regular evening service. But on the second Sunday of the month we hold a simple traditional style service at 3.00 with organ-led hymns and refreshments afterwards.
Why 3.00? It is mainly an older congregation and after consultation, some do not like to drive home in the dark in the winter. A 3.00 service is a good time for them and also those who have to fit round extra care.
We also hold occasional evening meetings such as Christian Mindfulness, discussion evenings and particular topics. The events page will have details of anything we are currently running.
STILL HAVE QUESTIONS
We have tried to think of all the basics but we know that there are always other questions you might have so just get in touch using the details at the bottom of the page.
We meet every Sunday at 10.30 am and have a traditional style monthly service at 3.00 pm, usually the second Sunday of the month but please check our events page.
