I’m New

We would love to see you at our services and you’ll be made very welcome.

We have several different services held at different times, so we hope you find some which you like.

You may have a few questions – we’ll try to answer some of them here, but if there is anything you’re not sure about, please get in touch.

What happens at the services?

At all our services, someone will welcome you when you arrive and make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the service and feel at home.

It’s best to come a few minutes early to get settled before the service starts, you can sit wherever you like and there are usually plenty of seats.

Please introduce yourself to one of our leadership team before you leave, and if you’re coming to a 10.30 am Sunday morning service, do join us in the Hall afterwards for a drink and a chat.

I have young children, what if they’re a bit noisy?

Children are welcome at all our services.

They will particularly enjoy our monthly Worship Together service, generally held on the first Sunday morning of the month in the church, our Sunday Special service, held on all the other Sundays in the Hall, and Children-in-Church on Wednesday mornings.

See the Children page for more information.

How accessible are the buildings and services?

There are two shallow steps down at the main (south door) entrance, but there is level access to the church by going round the right hand side and into the Church Centre, and then entering through the north door. There are several wheelchairs that can be borrowed by visitors. The Church Centre is fully accessible and has a disabled toilet.

Large print versions of hymn books and most service sheets are available - please ask a steward for them when you arrive. The church is fitted with a hearing induction loop.

What about Communion services?

During Communion services people can receive bread and wine as they remember how Jesus gave up his life for us on the cross.

If you don’t usually receive Communion, you may like to come up to the altar holding your service card to receive a blessing.

Do I need to put money into the collection?

It’s entirely up to you.

Collections are taken at most church services, and we are very grateful for people’s gifts, which support the Church’s work here in Springfield and in the Chelmsford Diocese.

There’s more information on the Donate page.

I’ve got questions about God, faith, Christianity…

We all have questions, and it often helps to talk about them.

Why not have a chat with someone in our leadership team.

Either see them at church or give them a call. And you may be interested in the Our Faith page too.
