Welcome

Hello, I’m David Somerville. 

We know that coming to a new place can sometimes make you nervous, so we want to try and make your visit a positive one. Whether you’re coming back to church or you’re trying it out for the first time, we know it’s a big step. Our hope is that you would feel welcome and comfortable with us at Seedfield Methodist Church.

 


 

We’ve provided some responses to some frequently asked questions: 

Who comes to Seedfield?

Anyone is more than welcome. Seedfield has a mixed congregation who come together from a variety of backgrounds and ages. The building has access for wheelchair users.

What happens at your services?

Every Sunday we have a family service at 11.00am. Services tend to include the following:

  • We sing together a variety of contemporary songs led by our music team.
  • We have times of prayer.
  • We have readings from the bible.
  • We hear a message linked to the bible reading(s).
  • Sometimes we have opportunities for people to share experiences.
  • Every few weeks, we share Communion.

Around 20 minutes into the 11.00am service the young people depart to join the crèche or Junior Church.  The children learn about a wide range of Bible stories, undertaking various crafts and activities. All volunteers working with children have a current DBS certificate and we adhere to an up-to-date child protection policy.

Twice a month there is an additional service at 9.30am. This tends to follow the pattern similar to that outlined above. However, the singing is more traditional including hymns and there is no provision for Junior Church.


 

 

How long are the services?

The 9.30am service is normally about an hour. The 11.00am service is normally about an hour and fifteen minutes.

Do you collect money during the service?

There is a collection during the service if you feel you wish to give, but don’t feel pressured into having to give. We believe that giving our money to God’s work in this Church is an act of worship and our members freely give to support our church.

Will I be asked to do anything during the service?

No, nothing to worry about.  Whilst a number of people from the congregation play an active role in our services, we want Seedfield 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.

What is the dress code?

The simple answer is, there is no dress code - we want you to feel comfortable, so just come as you are.

Is there a car park at the church?

We don’t have a car park. Parking is on the streets around the church. There are disabled signs placed outside the church entrance for people needing close access to the building.

If you have any other questions you may want answering or would like to talk to someone, please come along to one of our services or contact us via the information on our “Contact Us” page.
