Frequently Asked Questions…
What are our services like?
Our Sunday morning service starts at 10.30am with worship. It is a friendly informal service with children and adults of all ages. Children go out to their own group The Goal during the service. We worship with mainly contemporary songs but traditional hymns are also included. The worship is led by a group of singers and musicians including guitars, drums, keyboard and organ. There is a sermon message from the bible and regularly we allow time for prayer and response. We share Holy Communion on the second and fourth Sunday morning of every month. We serve a range of hot and cold drinks and cakes after the service which provides plenty of time to catch up with friends and help get to know new visitors.
Our new cafe service was created especially for those coming to church for the first time, or the first time in a long time! You can read more about this by opening the ‘cafe service’ icon on this website.
Do I need to dress smart?
The simply answer is NO! Some people like to dress up for church and that’s great, whilst others like to wear jeans and trainers, that’s great too! We care more about who you are, not what you wear, just be comfortable, be yourself.
Where is the church and is there parking?
A map with both Sat-Nav and GPS coordinates can be found on our where we are page, however we are just 5 minutes off Junction 12 of the M5 and we are situated in an easy to find area of Tuffley in Gloucester. There is an off road car park at the rear of our church which can cater for around fifteen cars. There is also plenty of overflow parking on Grange Road itself.
What is there for children and youth?
On Sunday mornings we The Goal for pre-school ages up to 11yrs within the main service. On Sunday evenings our youth group GYG for ages 11-18yrs meet from 6:30-8:30pm. Grangers for children aged 5-11yrs meet on Tuesday evenings in term time.
