Sunday Gatherings

We meet each Sunday at 10.00am at our building in Stocksfield to worship God together.



  • Sung worship comprises a mix of modern worship music with older songs and hymns from a small band (keyboard, guitar, bass, drums and sometimes strings/wind instruments). We like creativity and the use of different media.
  • Preaching and teaching styles aim to apply the unchanging truths and principles of the Bible to the challenges and complexities of 21st century living.
  • Sharing testimony encourages one another with what God is doing in and through our lives.
  • Topical issues such as social justice or the environment are included along with prayer for our partnership working with organisations such as Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Open Doors.
  • Communion and baptism are valued and celebrated regularly.
  • Spiritual gifts such as prophecy, words of knowledge and praying for healing are actively encouraged; we create space for people to share what God might be saying.
  • Young people have a full programme of teaching and activities every week, plus creche. On the first Sunday of every month we have “Connect,” an all age service (click on "Church Activities/Young people" at the top of the page).

In addition to Sundays we also meet in a number of small groups called “house-groups” through the week. These meet in different homes throughout the Tyne Valley and are a place to help each other grow in our faith and relationship with God (click on "Church Activities/House-groups" at the top of the page). You don’t have to be a church member to join us on Sundays or try out one of our house-groups, all visitors are warmly welcome. There is something for everyone!
