In this section you’ll find out more about our church; who we are and what we do. St David’s Church is a warm and welcoming group of people. We are a community of over 100 regular worshippers seeking to be active followers of Jesus Christ. It’s difficult to describe to a person who is not used to church but we quite a traditional, thriving, and lively church. We often have over thirty children attending our main 10.30am Sunday morning service. We have many young families as part of our congregation as well as single and older people – EVERYONE is welcome.
What to expect!
Our main Sunday morning 10.30am service is usually a traditional communion service starting with bible readings, hymns, and a sermon. After we exchange the ‘Peace’ by saying “peace be with you” to each other and shaking hands, the collection plate is passed around the congregation. Please don’t feel obliged to put anything on it if you are unable.
The singing of another hymn leads into the Communion. (This is the time when we remember Jesus with his disciples at the Last Supper; bread and wine are consecrated and consumed as Jesus did – see Gospel of St Luke 22:14-20). After Communion we sing a final hymn and the service ends at approximately 11.45am.
After the service we move in to the hall to have refreshments and socialise. There is plenty of time to meet other people and the clergy.
From time to time we have a Family Service on a Sunday morning at 10.30am. There is no Communion during the service and it is finishes within one hour. Families and uniformed organisations of young people associated with St David’s (Rainbows, Cubs, Scouts, and Guides) are all encouraged to attend.
At 7.30pm each Wednesday evening there is a quiet Communion service held in our church’s chapel lasting about thirty minutes. There is no singing just plenty of time for prayer and reflection.
We recognise that young people are our future and try to provide as much nurture and opportunity for them within our services. From time to time, we also hold a Messy Church event. With lots of help from parents and adult helpers, young people are able to enjoy a style of worship and meeting together that is fun and engaging for children of all ages!
