Church of the Good Shepherd, PO7 5QB
A warm welcome to CoGS.
We are friendly followers of Jesus Christ, open to the Holy Spirit, seeking to connect people of all ages and life situations through our worship services, our community ministries and our personal witness. We have a strong focus on work with children, families and young people, aiming to provide safe, fun and exciting opportunities for our under 18s to explore faith and life in ways that they can relate to and understand.
These services are particularly open to people who are new to church and are very family orientated. Not your 'normal' Sunday service!
Morning Worship/Holy Communion
When: Sundays @ 10-11/11:30am
Who is it for? All ages & Backgrounds Welcome
During our Sunday morning services you can expect a mixture of modern worship songs, prayers, topical preaching and refreshments (including fresh coffee!) after the service. Children are invited to join in Junior Church (ages 4-11) or Re:Fuel (age 11+) to learn more about God through activities, crafts, games and loud songs! We provide a creche for younger children, you are welcome to stay with them or return to the main service. Of course, children are welcome to stay in the main service if they wish.
We have "all-age' services once a month; these services make a special effort to be accessible and relevant to adults and children of all ages.
We also hold communion services once a month (please check our website for up-to-date information). The fifth Sunday of the month is a Quiet Said Communion, which happens about 3 times a year.
