“Orientated towards families, open to all”
The Ten Thirty is a lively and uplifting service with a relaxed and open style of worship, combined with the relevant biblical teaching which is accompanied by weekly House Group Notes produced by the preacher. There is an emphasis on being open to God in prayer and ministry, as we seek to be equipped to live as contemporary Christians in our fast moving culture. Songs and hymns are led by the worship band and we also make space for testimony from the church family.
Our Ten Thirty service has a full programme for children and young people, aged 2 1/2 -13. Kids always start the service together with the wider church family, usually armed with tambourines and other musical instruments, before heading out to their groups (pebbles, rocks and boulders). We encourage the spiritual development of children of all ages, starting from the very youngest. Parents are always welcome into the groups to both settle their children and see what they are doing. Children are also welcome to remain in the church with their parents.
For those with much younger children, there’s a creche area with toys in church, so parents can stay and take part in the service while the children enjoy themselves. For more information check out the Families and Youth pages.
There’s usually about 80-100 people at this service and you’d be so welcome to join us! Although the service starts at 10:30am we encourage you to come earlier at 10am so that you can grab a coffee and chat to others from The Nine beforehand.
