A celebration style service similar to an evening celebration at New Wine or Spring Harvest.
Café Church is held on Sunday evenings at 7pm, except on the 2nd Sunday of the month which is the Vision Youth Service. With dimmed lighting, the church is set out café style with the chairs placed in groups around coffee tables, and refreshments are available throughout the service.
We seek to praise and worship God through several extended times of worship. There is a time of teaching in which we sometimes use interactive methods. We aim to be open to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit and so we expect interruptions and encourage words of knowledge and the used of spiritual gifts as directed by scripture. There is always prayer ministry and quite often an opportunity to pray for each other informally.
We love to welcome people from other churches as we see this as a resourcing ministry for those who serve elsewhere and are looking for an opportunity for their spiritual refreshment. This means that there are members of the Café Church congregation who are committed members of St John’s as well as others who are more loosely associated. We believe this to be a real benefit helping us to connect up with other churches in the area. A warm welcome, we’d love to meet you!
