Enjoying God - Sundays @ 10:30am
Anyone and everyone! We're a multi-generational ‘family’ with people from many walks of life and backgrounds represented. Come and see!
Our main meeting is Sunday mornings at 10.30am. On a typical Sunday there are around 50-60 adults and children.
Our Sunday morning meeting usually includes the following:
After the service, there is the chance to pray in confidence with members of our Pastoral team/Elders or to meet others for more tea and coffee.
Our Sunday morning meeting typically lasts for about one and half hours.
Doors open at 10am on Sundays with tea and coffee available until 10.20am. Worship starts at 10.30am.
No, nothing to fear! Whilst we encourage the congregation to play an active role in our meetings, we want ECF to be as safe and as unthreatening a place as possible, so you will never be asked to do anything you do not want to do.
We don’t collect money during the meeting. There is an offering box near the main
entrance if you would like to contribute towards the running costs or outreach
ministries of the church.
Absolutely! Children are very welcome at ECF. We love the children to feel this is their church, too. There is usually a children’s slot in the first part of the meeting and then at about 11am we have crèche for the under 3s and Junior Church for 3-14 years. All leaders and helpers working with children have up to date Safeguarding training and a valid DBS.
The simple answer is, there is no dress code - we want you to feel comfortable, so just come as you are!
The parking at ECF is very limited and reserved for the elderly and infirm. There is a pay and display car park opposite which is free of charge on Sundays and from 6.30pm Monday to Saturday. Unfortunately, there are parking restrictions in the roads near the church building so parking is limited. We suggest you go just a little further up West Hill and park considerately in one of the side roads. You may also find parking at the end of Court Lane.
It is important to us that everyone feels welcome at ECF and that our meetings and activities are as accessible as possible. For the deaf or hard of hearing we operate a hearing loop.
There are all sorts of ways to get involved with ECF, whether it is joining a house group, or assisting in the various activities run by the church. If you have an idea of what you would like to do, contact the relevant team leader. If you are unsure about how to get involved, chat with one of the Elders to see what options would be most appropriate for you.
