It can be daunting visiting a church for the first time. Rest assured Greenbank will welcome visitors to worship on Sundays or to any other church event or function. Find us on a map.
As you come in to a 10.30am service you can expect to see a member of the welcome team at the door who will give you a printed order of service and advice. Most services consist of introductions and a 'Call to Worship', followed by hymns, bible readings, prayers and a sermon from the minister. There is usually an address for young people, and an offering is taken towards the end of the service. There is always a crèche at the 10.30am service. Children over three are welcome to join the other children who leave church after the first part. This all lasts about an hour or so.
The choir sings an introit and anthem every week from September to June. There is also a Praise Band which often leads at least one song.
After the main service on Sundays there is usually coffee and conversation in an informal setting in the hall, and a chance to meet people, learn more about the life of the church and the activities going on.
Other services take place at different times, and you can find these in the section on services. Communion is held at various times. Everyone is welcome whatever their denomination or stage in their faith journey.
If you want to talk to someone about coming to church, you can call or email the minister, A good way to pick up information is via the Church Magazine, Connections, which may be picked up at any time when the church is open, through the week as well as on Sundays.
