Worship

We gather together to worship God.

We are people who have turned away from God, and have become separated from him. Yet God has shown himself to us in Jesus Christ, and brought us back to himself. Jesus, who died in our place, reconciles us to the Father. Now the Spirit brings us into union with Christ so that we might know and delight in God, giving glory to him. This is what we do when we meet God together in worship.

At 10am on Sundays – This is our main time of worship together. Each week we sing in thankfulness for all that Christ has done for us, accompanied by organ and robed choir. We hear the Bible read, and enthrone Christ in our hearts through having the Bible preached to us. We join together in prayer. We celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, God working his grace in us. In all this, we enter into fellowship with God our Father and each other.

Messy Church meets throughout the year on a Wednesday afternoon after-school.

Special services – we have special services at important times of the year, as well as baptisms, weddings and funerals. If you are interested in having your special service at John Keble Church then speak to the vicar.
