What to expect on Sunday morning 

Even though there is far more going on at Acorn than a weekly service, there is no doubt that one of the highlights of the week is when we gather for corporate worship each Sunday morning.

 

Our goal is to create a setting where people can truly meet with God; through inspiring worship, relevant and practical teaching, sensitive prayer ministry and positive interaction – all accessible to those not used to going to church.

Welcome

You will always get a warm welcome on the door at Acorn by people who are genuinely pleased to see you. 

 

We're a church full of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable. We're discovering what it is to follow Jesus together.

Worship

The sung worship on Sunday mornings would be regarded as contemporary, lively and expressive.

 

We try to include some of the best new songs and hymns from around the world – as well as some that would already be well known to many.

Acorn has a team of singers and musicians who serve the church each week.

During the meeting the younger people get the opportunity to meet separately

Preaching

The sermon part of the morning would normally last for about 20 to 25 minutes.

 

Our aim is to be as relevant as possible both in content and in communication style.

 

The desire is to help people increase their understanding of God (as recorded in the bible) and to learn what it means to be a follower of Christ today.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. 

 

They will soar on wings like eagles.

 

They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31

The Notices

Its good to keep up with what's happening at Acorn.

A news bulletin is given out each week as you come into church and one or two important upcoming events may be pointed out briefly during the service.

Prayer

At Acorn we believe God can meet our every need through prayer. 

Those who would like prayer for a particular need or healing are encouraged to move to the front of the church at the end of the meeting where a dedicated prayer team awaits. 

Prayer takes place while during tea and coffee time.

Coffee, Tea and Biscuits

Even though the formal church meeting finishes by 12:00, most people choose to stay for tea. coffee and biscuits (and occasionally cakes). 

A great chance to catch up with friends or make new ones.
