Go back to normal view
Our Sunday morning services are informal but structured. On the last Sunday in the month (except December) the service is in a more contemporary style (including on some occasions café-style) under the overall title ReFresh.
Leadership of Worship
Normally our Minister leads many of our services. However the Minister is often leading services at other churches in the Winchester and Eastleigh Circuit. On these occasions the services at Wesley are led by Local Preachers from across the Circuit (including some from Wesley) and occasionally by Worship Leaders (who do not preach).
We sing a mixture of traditional and more modern hymns and songs. These are accompanied by organ and/or piano. A music group occasionally contributes to the services.
The church has a multimedia installation and songs and other material, e.g. words, pictures and video clips, are put on the screen at almost all of our morning services. The facility is also used at evening services at festivals and on some other occasions. However hymn books (Singing the Faith) are used at other services and are always available.
Family Sharing Time
It is our practice to include in the service a short session during which the congregation may hear news from members of the church family. Some items are the basis for prayer.
Welcome to All
Following the morning service everybody is invited to go into the hall (in the same building) for coffee, tea, biscuits and conversation. This provides a good opportunity to meet any visitors to the church and to welcome them.
Our evening service is a smaller, more intimate gathering. The style is similar to the morning service. Some evening services of Holy Communion include prayer for Healing and Wholeness.
