books and Bibles are available at the front and upstairs doors. We sing unaccompanied psalms, led by
a precentor. We stand to sing and sit to pray.
There is a crèche that meets
in the hall next door to the church during the morning service: age 0-2yrs
upstairs and age 3-5yrs (Tweenies) downstairs. Many of the Tweenies sit
together downstairs at the front of the church until the second singing. You
are welcome to take your children to the crèche/Tweenies at any time.
Sunday Schools as usual today. Children going to Sunday School should go next door to
the hall during the second singing. New children are very welcome. (Laxdale
Sunday School meets at 12.30pm in Laxdale School.)

Prayer Point: Central Sunday School would appreciate
the prayers of the congregation as they look to recruit another one or two
teachers to help teach in the Sunday School for a couple of years. The Sunday School is growing all the time for
which we are very thankful but would value prayer that suitable teachers would
be found to help out. Campaigners are also recruiting for the coming year so
prayer for new volunteer leaders would be appreciated for these groups also.
