Q:  Where do I park?
A: There is limited parking in the church car park with spaces for disabled people. To avoid inconveniencing our neighbours, please try to park in Fishponds Straits.
Q: What should I wear?
A: Jeans, shorts, casuals, suit – anything that makes you feel comfortable.
Q: Where should I sit?
A: Anywhere you like – occasionally seats are reserved for special services (these are marked by a sign at the ends of the rows). There are specific spaces for wheelchair users.
Q: Whom will I meet?
A: Approx. 200 people of all ages regularly attend our church. We are a friendly church so expect someone to say hello. Tea and coffee are served downstairs after the morning services.
Q: How long will the service last?
A: Approximately 75-90 minutes.
Q: What facilities are available for children and babies?
A: Crèche facilities are available at every morning service. Children go to their teaching groups mid-service in the mornings except every 3rd Sunday when Communion is served and children go straight to their groups at the beginning. If your children or babies want to stay throughout the service, that’s fine.
Q: Is there a money collection?
A: Yes there is an offertory box although many regular attendees give by bank standing order. If you have not come prepared for this, don’t worry; if you do want to give, the offertory box is on the right hand wall near the back as you come into church.  There is also an electronic card reader.
Q: What other facilities are available?
A: We have a hearing aid loop, provide large print song sheets on request and have one wheelchair for use on the church premises. Just ask one of the greeters at the door.
Q: What is Communion?
A: Generally on the 3rd Sunday morning of each month the service includes Communion. In these services, bread and wine (non-alcoholic) are served to remember Jesus’ death and the debt he paid for us.
Q: Should I take Communion?
A: The bread and wine are available to all who believe Jesus to be their Saviour (it doesn’t matter what other church you might normally attend). If you don’t believe or are unsure, just let the bread and wine pass you by.
