Sundays

‚ÄčWe have three regular services on a Sunday:

Morning Service

Our main services are held on Sunday mornings. There are two services ( with a few exceptions that the two services will be combined into one ) one after the other and they are a carbon copy of each other. They are a large gathering of people from all sorts of backgrounds and of all ages.

We meet at 9:30am and 11:15am on a Sunday morning at Roundwood Park School and serve coffee in between the services. Please note that there will only be one service at 10.30am in the whole December. On 25th December, there will also be a Christmas Day Morning service at 10am Roundwood Park School.

Children and Youth have their own groups which they go to partway through the service. In addition we run a crèche for under 3s. The group for years 7-10 is only held at the second service, but hopefully youth of that age would enjoy being in the main body of the church if they were to come to the 9:30am service.

Evening Service

Our evening services follow a different teaching programme to our other services. They are more close-knit than our morning service and are even more relaxed.

We meet at 6:00pm and services usually last around an hour. We meet at Harpenden United Reformed Church's building on Vaughan RoadPlease note that there will be no evening service on 3rd ( Carols by Candlelight ) and 31st December. Also, 24th December evening service will take place at 8.45pm.

What to Expect

Sundays are the main opportunity to gather together as a church and are a good opportunity to come and visit us for the first time. Meetings centre around teaching, worship, prayer and fellowship. We regularly celebrate the Lord's Supper with bread and grape juice. From time to time we have special occasions such as family services, baptisms and thanksgivings for new additions to families.

We seek to apply God's Word to the contemporary world. We aim to be welcoming to all and have a friendly feel to our services. Our music is a blend of contemporary and more traditional styles and songs.

If you don't often go to church and are thinking of attending one of our services then please don't feel pressured to join in with anything you're not comfortable with. You are welcome to simply observe what goes on. You don't need to dress in formal clothing, most of us don't. A service leader will normally tell you when to stand up and sit down. If you wish to sing, the words will be on a screen at the front.

And there's free tea or coffee and the chance to chat to members after the evening service, and between the two morning ones. We trust that you'll feel warmly welcomed when you do join us!
