Services during COVID-19
Our main meeting is at 10.45 on a Sunday morning, where everyone is welcome; the style of the service is a mixture of traditional hymns and modern songs with times of prayer, news and Bible teaching.
We follow Bible based teaching, focusing on specific books or themes. These are fully examined, drawing on a range of commentaries and ideas, carefully brought together by our Minister, to highlight their relevance to us in our day to day lives.
As well as worshipping through his written word, we enjoy praise and worship through music. We have a traditional pipe organ to accompany traditional hymns, and a music group which leads us in more modern worship. From time to time, our dance group will bring God’s word to life through dramatic interpretation of the Bible.
As you come into the church, you will be welcomed by a member of our fellowship, who will hand you a copy of ‘The Week’ which gives details of our service, and events throughout the week. As you go through to the sanctuary, you are welcome to sit wherever you like, however, if you need the loop to help you hear, please sit towards the front.
The words for all our songs are projected onto a screen at the front of the church, but if you would prefer a book, including large print, they are available as you come in.
Bibles are provided in the backs of seats if you wish to follow readings.
After the service, you are welcome to join us for tea and coffee, and an opportunity to get to know us better.
We have a carpark, and the building is easily accessible for both pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Salem Junior Church
Our services are open to everyone. However, for younger ones we have an active Junior Church, where the children go to age appropriate groups after a short time of family worship. New children and visitors are always welcome to join in. For children aged 3 and under, we have a bright and airy crèche which is full of lovely toys, and runs throughout the service. Junior Church is staffed by volunteers who are all DBS cleared.
Communion will normally form part of the service on the third Sunday of the month. Anyone is welcome to receive communion, as long as they have made a personal decision to follow Jesus. No-one is pressured to take Communion, it is entirely voluntary.
