A welcome from the Congregation

Water Lane Church is a warm, welcoming, open and inclusive church that considers community and compassion to be of the highest priority. It is a vibrant church that is seeking through prayer, debate, challenge and fun to find Christ's purpose for his church in this place.Water Lane Church does not claim to have 'arrived', rather it believes faith to be a continuing pilgrimage. The people of Water Lane warmly invite you to join them on a journey


Worship Services take place at 10.30am every Sunday.

Worship lies at the core of our fellowship. Usually on the first Sunday of the month we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and all who love Jesus and seek to follow Him are welcome at His table.Junior Church runs each Sunday during term time. There is also a crèche each Sunday for those children under four. The children spend the first part of the service with the whole church family before leaving for their groups. You are welcome to join us for tea and coffee in the Church Hall after the service.Our services are of the Free Church tradition. We believe that we gather around the Word of God in order that through preaching and teaching it may become alive for us. Music forms an important part of our worship too - hymns are accompanied by the organ and occasionally by our Music Group.The evening service takes the form of quiet reflection, the lighting of a candle and the breaking and sharing of bread.Additional services are held at Christmas and Easter.

By the week and month there are many other opportunities for fellowship, witness and service.
