New to Church?

Welcome
Welcome!

Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.


Key information about the church:

Where and when does the church meet?


Our Church meets every Sunday at 10:00 and 17:30. A limited amount of on-site parking is available, otherwise parking on side streets presents little difficulty on Sundays. There is a bus stop right by the church and a railway station about one hundred metres away. The church’s main service is in the morning at 10:30. The evening service at 17:30 has a relatively small congregation and is quiet and reflective in nature.

We meet at Park Lane, Knebworth SG3 6PD. You can find a map on our Contact Us page.
 

What should I expect when I visit the church?


You will receive a very warm welcome, particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. Generally, people start to arrive for worship from around 30 minutes before the service starts and find a very informal ambience. During this time you can engage with other people, pray, read the bible or study the church notices displayed on the screen. The church is equipped with a public address system and an induction loop.

Normally, tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service when there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions. Five times a year, we have a café-style service where tea, coffee, etc. are served at your table.
 

What happens if bring children to church?


We have a fantastic programme for the children at our Church. Very young children (birth to three years) would normally remain with their parents and ‘play bags’ are provided if distraction is needed. The worship hall can be viewed from entrance lobby and sound is piped to that area should that arrangement be preferred at any time.

Children stay with their parents at the start of the service for about 20 minutes as we worship together for the first part of the morning. This part of the service is ‘all age’ in style and at the appropriate point children and young people leave for their own activities. Parents are welcome to accompany their younger children if that is more comfortable.

Older children and teenagers have their own groups.

For more information about how we engage with different age groups please visit the relevant page under Community Engagement.
 

Is there a dress code?


No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Are the church buildings accessible to all?


Yes, all of the rooms, including the church itself, are on one level and there are no steps or ramps.
