Church Life
Davenport Road Methodist Church
Sunday Services All Age Service (10.30am - 11.45am) Our morning worship is “All Age” worship, and normally includes songs, drama, power points, DVDs and interaction as well as a message/sermon. We tend to base our worship theme on the Salt (Scripture Union) material which our children in Junior Church use. This enables the whole family to feel corporately involved in the morning’s theme. Our Worship Leaders start the service with a Worship, Praise and Prayer time and then the attending preacher continues in leading the congregation with the “theme” of the week. The children leave the service after about 20 mins and have a fun learning time in Junior Church. Tea and coffee are served after the service. Family Service on 1st Sunday of month (9.30am - 10.45am) Once a month we have a family service. The children and young people are involved for the whole service. This service is also the parade service for our Girls' Brigade Company and their families. For the under 5s we provide a quiet play area for the time of the service. This service is very lively and interactive teaching and response. Tea and coffee are served after the service. Evening Service (6.00pm - 7.00pm) Our evening service at 6.00pm is a more traditional Methodist service and more often than not uses Hymns and Psalms. Services are usually based on the Lectionary theme. Attendance at these services is 15 – 25 adults. Holy Communion is normally held once a month. Communion Davenport Road Methodist Church has an open and accessible approach to communion. All who love Jesus as their Saviour are welcome to take comminion whatever their age. l
