At Haverhill Methodist Church we offer two quite distinct opportunities for worship each Sunday.
Morning Service – 10:30am
Evening Service – 6:30pm (1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays only each month)
You can be sure of a warm welcome at both services.
About 100 people gather for the morning service and all age groups are represented. This time of worship is family orientated and musically we are led by a worship band playing contemporary songs. The emphasis is on entering into a deeper sense of God’s presence, being open to the Holy Spirit and seeking to develop into mature disciples of Jesus through the teachings of the Bible. The whole church family are together for the first part of the service, then children leave for teaching in ‘Sunday Club’. The first Sunday of the month is an All-Age Worship service, when the children remain in church throughout.
After the morning service we always meet for a social time in our church hall, where tea, coffee and biscuits are served. On the first Sunday of each month we enjoy a simple bring and share lunch together. These times always make for great opportunities to meet new friends and find ways to become more fully integrated into the church family.
By contrast, the evening service is usually more reflective by nature. There is a smaller congregation which meets to sing traditional hymns which are accompanied by the organ.
Each month there are opportunities for sharing bread and wine (Holy Communion) in both morning and evening services. All who know and love Jesus are welcome to take part, as we remember His commandment to “Do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
If you would like to speak in confidence to share a burden, there is always someone to listen and pray with you. We believe in divine healing and offer prayer ministry for those who are ill or have other needs. Simply approach our minister or one of the prayer ministry team wearing green lanyards.
We do not ask visitors for money, although there is an offering bowl at the back of the church. Money may be placed in this before or after the service. If you wish to contribute regularly, please ask about our bank transfer and envelope payment schemes. If you are a tax-payer, you can make your donations more valuable by signing up for gift aid – just ask.
