In Bracknell, on Sundays we have two meetings: 9am – 9:45am, an informal prayer and worship. 10:30am – 12pm, an all-age service and children’s meeting. The all-age service includes band-led contemporary worship, testimony and bible teaching which both connects us with God and also challenges and encourages us on our spiritual journeys. There is also an opportunity for prayer and ministry at the end.
In Reading, the morning and evening church services usually last about an hour and a half. The morning services starts at 10:30am and the evening service at 6:30pm on the second and fourth Sundays of the month – we call this ‘Encounter @ NVC’, these have a shorter message, but has prophecy appointments that you can sign up for, healing rooms and plenty of time to encounter God through extended ministry and worship.
We like to keep things simple, informal and friendly, so no need to come all suited up, just whatever you feel most comfortable in.
We start with a time of worship for about half an hour followed by a short welcome and church life news. Then there’s a talk based on the bible and our experiences of following Jesus that’s practical and relevant to everyday life. After the talk, there’s an opportunity for prayer if you would like it.
