SUNDAY SERVICE – 10:30 AM
As a Methodist-Anglican Local Ecumenical Partnership, the Christian Centre has varied forms of worship.
The first two Sundays in the month will be ‘Methodist’ , while the fourth Sunday will follow a more ‘Anglican’ pattern of worship. The third Sunday of the month will be in a varied format lead by local preachers, by our Worship Leaders, or by our Community Outreach Worker.
Data projection equipment has been installed and will be used frequently to enhance the variety of worship formats and to enrich the hymns and songs used during the service.
Communion services will normally be on the second Sunday of the month unless it is an Anglican service, in which case it will be on the fourth Sunday.
When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, there will be a joint service with the congregations of St. Mary’s Bolsterstone, St. Matthias Stocksbridge, and St. John’s Deepcar meeting on a rotational basis in one of the four churches.
The Joint Services for 2017 are 29 January at St. Matthias, Stocksbridge; 30 April at Stocksbridge Christian Centre; 30 July at St. John’s Deepcar; 29 October at St. Mary’s Bolsterstone; and 31 December at the Stocksbridge Christian Centre.
All joint services are from 10:45 AM.
All services are all-age, family style.
For information on current services see ‘Events’.
