I WOULD LIKE TO VISIT, WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Our main weekend worship experience happens on Sundays at 11am and finishes around 1pm.. Whether you are young or old, married or single we believe everyone will have a great experience with us. We also have a variety groups that meet across the week to encourage you in your walk with Jesus.
Casual & Relaxed|We're Family
Come as you are. We 100% believe that the core of church is FAMILY and we understand that entering a church for the first time is a frightening experience but we expect you to not only feel welcomed as our guest but to know that you can come in as you are and feel at home. After the meeting we have free tea and coffee available so please hang around and get to know us.
Music & Message
Each weekend experience includes modern worship, ministry and an engaging message from our Pastor Rich Rycroft or other speakers. We also will take an offering during the meeting for those who want to give to the work that Hillfields Church does. Please if you are a visitor do not worry about giving, you are our guest and we want everyone to feel inclusive of the meeting and never to feel obligated. We also have a communion/remembrance service once a month (usually 3rd Sunday).
For My Kids?
We have a kids ministry for Creche age, juniors and youth. We run an open creche during the first part of the meeting and then have a excellent team of volunteers who take your kids out for the second part of the meeting. We take your child's safety very seriously because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kids Church programmes the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the kids’ experience. Don’t worry, after your first visit, checking in will only take a minute. Our kids stay in the meeting for around 45minutes to enable them to engage and worship with their parents after which they will be in supervised groups.
Please Stay with us for Dinner
After the Weekend Gathering, we stay and have a meal together, the meal is free and it is a great way to connect with people, continue ministry from the meeting and to feel part of a family. We know that for some, loneliness is a regular occurrence and just by offering a meal it can often make people aware that they are not alone and there is a God that loves them very much and He has put His family in place for all to be part of. We usually eat at about 2pm and are cleared up by 4pm.
