We invite you to join us at 10.30am on Sunday mornings. Our services are very informal. After a welcome and some family news we have a time of lively worship, lasting about 20-30mins. We may have an item for the younger members of the congregation, before they depart for King’s Kids. We then spend time learning together from God’s Word (the Bible). We celebrate communion in the morning on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. At the end of the service there is always an opportunity for prayer ministry. We usually finish about 12pm. Afterwards we encourage everyone to stay and enjoy fellowship together over refreshments in the side-hall. Sometimes we actually have a fellowship break with drinks and biscuits in the middle of the service, to enable us to get to know one another better.
During the morning service there is a crèche with a live link to the church for parents who feel the need to take their children out – but we want everyone to feel at home, and don’t mind if children move about or make a noise.
Children and young people aged 3-13 are invited to join King’s Kids, where they have their own form of Bible teaching, worship (and usually a game as well) in a lively and interactive format.

What is the Dress Code?
We are very informal and there is no particular dress code; be relaxed and come as you are.
What Form Does Your Worship Take?
Our worship time is led by members of our worship team (with a mixture of guitars / keyboards / drums / bass / singers etc), and will consist of mainly contemporary worship songs, with the occasional hymn thrown in for good measure. All the words are projected onto a screen so you don't have to worry about finding the right songs in a book.
What Version of the Bible do you Use?
We mainly use the NIV, but sometimes a preacher may use the ESV or the NKJV.
What about parking?
We have our own car park, though it is quite small and can get very congested. You can park in the car park by the Coach & Horses Pub which is a few yards down on the opposite side of the road. We do ask visitors to be mindful of our neighbours when parking on the road and to ensure that they don't block the entrances to any of their drives.
What About Facilities for the Disabled?
We have a priority parking spot for a couple of cars for drivers with disabilities. We also have a ramp that can be used if required to access the building. There is a toilet for the disabled available.
What About an Offering?
We do take up a collection at some point during the service, often during the last song / hymn, but we do not expect, or want, visitors to feel obliged to give.
We are currently in the process of developing our Sunday evening sessions into a variety of formats. These include:
|a more prolonged time of intimate worship and waiting on God to move among us in the power of the Holy Spirit.|
Discipleship Café Church:
|when we look at vital issues of following Jesus in today’s world in a lively and interactive style.|
Family Fun Afternoons:
|these are outreach events for families, starting at 4pm with a variety of crafts, games, and fun things to do, followed by a short gospel based celebration and a free tea.|
|when after a time of worship and teaching we pray for those who need healing.|
|when more time is given to worship and in-depth teaching.|
We also join together with the other local churches in Stotfold on occasions for special events (ie: Remembrance Sunday, Carols by Candlelight, Songs of Praise & Café Church).
Unless otherwise stated, the evening events start at 6.00pm.
