Prayer Group: 9.40-10.10am
Our prayer group meets every Sunday in the church creche to hold our church, community and world in prayer. All are welcome to join us.
Morning Service: 10.30-11.45am
We have a mix of traditional and newer songs, led by piano and our music group, as well as Bible readings, a sermon and prayers. We share in communion on the first Sunday of each month and have a parade/family service (where all ages are together) on the third and fifth Sundays of each month.
There is a good sized crèche area in the church which is open to all children under 3 and their parents. On some Sunday mornings we have a special session for children aged roughly 18 month-3 years during the Bible reading and sermon, so that they can burn off some energy, have a Bible story and some songs, and allow their parents to take part in the service. For children aged 3 and over, we have ATOM (please see below). The children usually start off in the service and go out around 10.45am.
Our Sunday morning services are recorded. Sermons are available online here, and we also have CDs of the whole service available for those who are housebound - please contact Mike Thomas for more details.
This is our Sunday morning club for 3-16 year olds, including games, music, drama, bible teaching and much more. ATOM meets usually meets on the first, second and fourth Sundays of each month, with the third and fifth Sundays usually being a parade/family service.
All of our children and youth workers operate under the provision of our Safe Children's policy, which includes DBS checks.
Together: worship for young families
Together is a new venture to help families with under-8s to worship together. We're currently having a break over the summer but hope to restart in the Autumn. For more details, please contact Matt.
Messy Breakfast is on the third Sunday of each month (except August and December) from 8.45-10am in the church lounge. We share breakfast together, and then unpack the theme from the previous week's Messy Church. We have crafts and games for children, and discussion time for parents. All are welcome, but please note that at both Messy Church and Messy Breakfast children must be accompanied by an adult.
Herringthorpe URC is a disability friendly church with wheelchair access, large print hymn books and a loop hearing system available for all services.
