What we do on Sundays
10:30am Great Ashby Community Centre
We meet in the main hall of Great Ashby Community Centre. We start with coffee and tea and biscuits and sometimes cake at 10.30am. The service proper begins at 10. 45am. Generally we aim to finish by 12.00 noon.
We try to be pretty relaxed and informal. We usually have a small worship band and sing a a mix of contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns. Each Sunday there is time for prayer, a Bible reading and a talk/sermon. Coming from both Baptist and Anglican roots we tend to mix and match quite a lot. So, sometimes Communion looks Baptist, sometimes it looks Anglican. We sometimes get quite liturgical and sometimes we don’t get liturgical at all.
Usually there are planned children’s activities and a crèche facility. Children tend to break into their groups after the first ten minutes or so and then return at the end of the service so that we can tell each other what we’ve been doing.
