Worship

At Carrs Lane, we do not believe in ‘one-size-fits-all’ Christian worship. Instead, we offer a range of opportunities to share in prayer and worship – different styles, different times, different days. In our more formal services we draw on the traditions of the United Reformed Church and Methodist Church.

All these acts of worship have one thing at heart, however: an honest attempt to understand what it means to respond to Jesus’ command to, ‘Follow me’.

Sunday Worship

On a Sunday, a good number of people gather to share in morning worship at 10.30am. This service is often fairly traditional in format (but not over-formal), with challenging, relevant teaching and a mixture of styles of music.

Sunday morning worship lasts about an hour and is followed by refreshments. The theme of the service is always made clear at the beginning; it will often be based on the lectionary readings, or arise out of a particular series of themed services. Whilst the tone is usually calm and ordered, ample opportunity is provided for full congregational involvement and participation. There is usually a printed order of service, which is available to see here.
