Connect crop

Connect is our informal, interactive, intergenerational service at 10:30am on the 3rd Sunday of the month at our St John's Site.  It lasts for about an hour.

At Connect, we aim to:

  • connect with God the Father as we worship and pray together
  • connect with Jesus as we explore the Bible together 
  • connect with the Holy Spirit as we share stories of God's work in our lives
  • connect with each other as we spend time together

Connect 1When you arrive for a Connect service, the space will look rather different from normal with chairs set up "cafe-style" around tables. If you're not sure where to sit, one of our team of welcomers will help you find a table with friendly people!

In keeping with the cafe-style, we serve breakfast from 10:15am.

At Connect services, there is less talking from the front and more interaction around your tables.  We aim to create a safe space where people of all ages can share with each another, learn from one another and pray together.  The activities vary, but always include:

  • worshipping God together in song - a mixture of lively songs (some of them with actions!) and quieter, reflective music
  • a story from the Bible, often via a video
  • a variety of craft and other activities, sometimes individual, sometimes as a table, designed to encourage conversation
  • sometimes a game or a quiz to get you thinking
  • one or more questions for reflection
  • a creative approach to prayer

What about my children?

We actively welcome families with children of all ages. If your child is a baby or a toddler, they will remain with you for the duration of the service. A welcomer will give you a Toddler Bag as you come in - these contain a variety of toys and games to entertain your child. We are aware that it can be very hard for a toddler to remain in their seat throughout the service. If your child is getting restless, there is space on the carpeted area at the back where they can move about - and don't worry at all if they make a noise!
