We enjoy worshipping at Wallasey Village Church.
We love to praise God in the singing of hymns and songs, old and new, and we are blessed in the hearing of God’s word spoken to us by our own minister and by visiting preachers who have become good friends to us over the years; we are thankful for the opportunity to join with others in prayers of thanksgiving, praise and concern to the God we love. In recent years, technology has added to the experience of worship by the projection of hymn and song words, powerpoint presentations, CDs,videos and DVDs.
Participation by members of the fellowship is encouraged (but not obligatory!)– whether in bible reading, offering prayer or in general involvement. Occasional services are led entirely by members of the fellowship.
We currently observe communion by the sharing of bread and wine in alternate months.
You will find that there’s plenty of laughter and lots of love – and a great time of friendship shared over a cup of tea or coffee (Fair Trade) after the morning service.
We take our worship out of the church at different times – for example, we will go to a local care home, Granville Court, to observe Remembrance Day. And we can take communion to folk at home, who are unable to get out to church.
There is usually at least one bible study or other group meeting happening either at church, at the Manse or at someone’s home during the week. Over the past few years, courses have included Christianity Explored, Discipleship Explored, Essential 100, Essential Jesus, the Essential Question, Believe and Way of the Spirit. Membership courses are held as needed for those thinking about confirming their commitment to following Jesus. Sometimes courses are preceded by a meal which we enjoy together.
