Our Sunday morning services have worship suitable for all – either with the adults in the Church or in our young peoples offering – Jude’s Club. We mark the major festivals like Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas etc with All Age gatherings.
Our younger folk at our morning gathering, up to 11yrs, have the option of joining our Sunday morning club – Jude’s Club. We also have a creche area in the church for the youngest members of the community.
Our Sunday evenings start at 6.00pm with fresh coffee & muffins to help us form community before we start singing at 6.30pm. The evenings are about good sung worship, encouraging Bible teaching and community. And in our desire to help not just our church, but also our local community, we have a major building project in planning to turn the church from a 1 day a week building into a 7 day a week community facility – more here.
Through the year we try to cover different areas of discipleship. For an introduction to Christianity we might use The Alpha Course, initial discipleship ideas – The Purpose Driven Life, help in discovering what God has shaped us for in life using the Who? Me? Course and an opportunity to discover that reaching out to new people is something we can all easily do with Just Walk Across The Room – its just about friendship! Sometimes we run them on an evening, but sometimes we found having another night out was too much for some – so we moved them at times to Sunday mornings! Either way they can allow you to have a short focused season learning and growing in one of these areas.
We’re also going through lots of changes – buildings and services, small groups and kids. It isn’t just blind busyness, but we are following a firm strategy based on the links between outreach and discipleship.
We have great childrens’ times across the week – not just Sundays – see what’s on offer here. Families can find space, Youth can gather in different ways, folk who want to grow more in their relationship with Jesus often meet up Sunday evenings and our older community are encouraged, especially at our Midweeker (Weds at 10.30am in our Upper Hall).
Parking is easy in our own car park and nearby streets. (Try to avoid Mon to Fri 10 – 11am when there are parking restrictions) We hope to keep up lots of social activities. All folk of any age or background can find friendship here. Together we try to follow Jesus, welcome the Holy Spirit and bring glory to the Father.
We encourage members of the community to support ministries in the city, not just in the church. And it isn’t uncommon for individuals and families to feel a call further afield and we have several of our church family in overseas ministries and missions.To find out more about the ministries we support, visit our Linked Ministries pages.
We maintain close links with Alpha UK, Willow Creek, New Wine and the Purpose Driven Church. We are members of Churches Together In Plymouth and we’re a parish church in Exeter Diocese, a region within the Church of England.
