We have an hour of Christian worship every hour from 10am-11am. This takes place in the Church sanctuary every Sunday, apart from on the first Sunday of the month, when he have all-age worship in the Church hall. Please see below for further information about our worship. Worship is followed by free tea, coffee and biscuits in our community coffee lounge and library. If you’d like to come and meet members of our congregation, but aren’t too sure about attending a service, please feel free to come along and have a drink and chat with us from 11:00 am in the coffee lounge, which is clearly sign-posted.
We appreciate that coming to a new Church to worship for the first time can be a little scary, so please click HERE for more information about what to expect if you come to worship at Collinwood Road URC.
It is important to note that we do not have a minister in post at Collinwood Road URC, so our worship is led by either members of the congregation or visiting ministers.
Worship in the sanctuary
Our Sunday morning services begin at 10am and takes place in the sanctuary every Sunday, except for the first Sunday of the month when we meet in the Church hall for all-age worship (see below). Worship in the sanctuary follows a standard format including hymns, bible readings, prayers and a sermon given by the minister. However, our worship can also include times for discussion, musical offerings and members of the congregation sharing their testimonies. We almost always have children joining us for worship, so we aim to make sure they feel included through means such as story-telling, visual-aids, action prayers or hymns etc.
On the second Sunday of each month our worship is led by the Reverend Margaret Yee and we share in communion. We invite everyone everyone to receive the bread and wine during communion.
All-age worship in the Church hall
On the first Sunday of each month we have All-Age worship that begins at 10am, and which is led by members of the congregation. During this worship we explore our faith in a more informal way through arts & crafts, story telling, interactive prayer, games, music and of course cake. In the past our worship has even included science experiments, taste tests and firing sling-shots! These services always include lots of fun and laughter as well as an opportunity to explore our faith and challenging topics together. Although these services are a lot more interactive there is never any pressure to take part in activities and if you’re just testing the waters, you’re more than welcome to sit back and just observe. You can see some pictures from previous services below.
