I am new to church

What to expect

Our aim, whatever service you attend, is to make the church experience as welcoming and meaningful as possible for you, your family and friends. To help you feel comfortable when you visit, below are some things you can expect when you come to any of our worship services.
Some things you can expect when you come to any of our worship services.
  • Welcomers

    When you walk through our doors, the first people you meet are our welcomers. They are there to assist you in finding whatever you may need before, during, or after the service and to answer any questions you may have.
  • Children

    We run a children’s programme at St. Tim’s so if you have children then please take advantage of our children’s programmes that run during our Sunday worship gatherings. Our welcomers will introduce you to one of the children’s workers if this is something you may be interested in.
  • Worship

    We believe in developing worship that speaks to the heart and soul leaving people inspired. We use music and prayers to help people connect with God. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to help us learn more about Him, and to help us in our daily life, build values and give us answers to life’s challenges. Our messages aim to challenge you in your spiritual journey as Christ-followers.
  • Ministry Time

    Our desire is for you to leave your time with us knowing that you have met with God. At the end of our gatherings if you want you have the opportunity to talk to someone about your experience in our church, have someone pray with you, or just spend some quiet time reflecting on what you have seen or heard.
  • After service fellowship

    Before you head away you are welcome to join us for tea or coffee. This is a great chance to get to know us and we hope that you find us friendly and welcoming.
  • Other Activities and Events

    We have a number of activities and events that you may be interested in. Have a browse around the website and if there is something that interests you contact us for more details.
