Each Sunday in Hull, the Church meets in both the morning and evening for a time of worship and devotion through God’s Word.
10.30am – Family Worship Service
Sunday mornings consist of a time of praise and worship led by our dedicated worship team and a study of God’s Word. Alongside the sermon, children are encouraged to join the Discovery Club in the Ignite Centre. We also have créche facilities next to the entrance of the main Church with a direct television feed to the main hall. This allows those with younger children to let their children play while still being able to listen to the Word.
On one Sunday in the month we have a communion service after a shorter morning service. This time around the Lord’s Table is a very devotional service which combines worship, prayer, meditation and thanksgiving.
6:30pm – Evening Praise and Gospel Service
We come together again in the evening for a Gospel themed service. This is the perfect opportunity to bring the unsaved to Church as the Word is preached undiluted. We believe that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and this is shown clearly each Sunday evening. As in the morning, the worship team lead us through a time of praise and worship.
What happen in a service?
Our services begin with some singing and worship. This is followed by our Pastor bringing a sermon from God’s Word as we are a Bible believing, Christ preaching church. We won’t ask you to do anything that makes you feel uneasy. Please just relax and be yourself.
When should I arrive?
Our morning worship service starts at 10:30am and our evening gospel service starts at 6:30pm. Most people begin to arrive around 15 minutes before these times.
Where can I park?
We have a large car park with plenty of free parking spaces.
Can I bring my children?
Of course, we are a family church and welcome all ages. During our morning service we have a ‘Discovery Club’ with arts and crafts, activities and learning from the Bible. This is for children of ages 5 to 14 and takes place in our Ignite Centre. We also have a creche for younger children next to the main church entrance. This is to provide comfort and allow your children to make as much noise as they want. We also provide a live feed to the service so you won’t miss a thing.
What should I wear?
Our church has a relaxed atmosphere. Many people dress casually, other choose a shirt and tie. Come how you feel comfortable.
How long will it last?
Services are usually last about 90 minutes. Our cafe is open on most evenings after the service for fellowship.
What happens in a communion service?
On one Sunday of the month, our main morning service will finish at 11:30. We then have a short break before our communion service, this is to allow anyone to leave if they wish. All those who love the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Saviour are welcome to take of the emblems. Anyone is welcome to stay and observe, please feel free to pass the bread and grape juice by. Communion or The Lord’s Supper is a special time of remembrance of what Christ has done for a believer. It is a very devotional time and we take emblems of bread and red grape juice as a symbolism of Jesus’ body broken for us and His blood shed for the forgiveness of sins respectively. It is important to understand that taking these emblems does not forgive us in God’s eyes, but it is a remembrance of what he did on the cross for the forgiveness of our sin
