New Here?

Welcome

We understand that going somewhere you’ve never been before can be daunting and we do everything we can to ensure visitors of all ages and backgrounds have a very positive experience.

On this page you will find details of times, locations and car parking but first let us give you an idea of what you can expect.

What to Expect

Sunday Mornings

During the Sunday morning service a welcome will be given from the stage and then the band will lead us in some songs. The words will appear on the large projector screen. You can stand or sit whilst singing and praising God, but wearing of masks is still recommended.

Other elements that may be included are prayers for specific needs, stories of people who have experienced Gods help, Communion (a celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection using the symbols of bread and juice) – you will need to bring your own communion with you, and announcements of things coming up in the church calendar.

We also take an offering each week but this is primarily an opportunity for regulars to give – this takes the form of a container placed by the exit door to be used at the end of the service. All our services are live streamed and available for catch up later on. No member of the congregation is filmed directly (back of heads may appear).

How to get here

Our building is located in a wonderful local suburb of Telford. We do have limited parking but please do use the Tesco car park and walk across the bridge where possible (3 minute walk). The address for the FREE Tesco car park is Hadley District Centre, Telford TF1 5NF.

ARRIVAL

You will be helpfully greeted when you arrive. We have a team of people who are available to help in any way they can.

SEATING

You can sit in whichever seat you would like in the main hall. Our welcome team can help you to your seat if you are unsure.

ATMOSPHERE

When you enter the building you will find a relaxed environment. People feel comfortable wearing what they feel comfortable wearing. Most people wear casual to casual smart clothing but it’s really up to you. People are friendly (we’ve all visited for the first time) and you will see lots of genuine smiles.

PARKING

We have limited car parking space on site. Further parking is available at Hadley Centre Car Park by Tesco Express. It is free and has unlimited time availability. From there it is only a short, 3 minute walk over the footbridge towards the 12 storey high rise block of apartments, The Haybridge – a well-known landmark in Hadley. Our church is alongside the Haybridge.

TALK

Each week a Bible based talk is given. We find that the Bible is full of gems that when explained, can relevantly impact our lives. The speakers are really down to earth and take care to explain things clearly, often using illustrations. Talks may include humour, inspirational stories and observations from everyday life but they always centre around the relevant message of the Bible, and last about 25 minutes in length.

RESPONSE

During the service, we will often give opportunity for people to be prayed with in person. Some may want to become a Christian, others will be looking for healing, or hope in a difficult situation, and our Ministry Team count it a privilege to pray for them. All Ministry complies with the current government regulations.

All Age Access
