What to expect when I visit the church

You can expect a warm welcome, great worship, an impacting preach and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God.
Also tea, coffee and biscuits after the services and quite often a nice buffet, bbq or hog roast too!


What happens to the children at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the Children at church.
Young people aged between 11-17 usually meet at Cornerstone Community Centre Silverdale for 10:30am for their own Youth Church service. During this time our young people discuss issues which are relevant to them.

At Silverdale Church for babies up to when they go into reception class we have 'Little Fish' with lots of age appropriate toys games, Bible stories and crafts.
For ages 4-11 we have 'Big Fish Sundays'.  Fast fun games, action songs, prayer, Bible teaching.  Currently following the Dig-in Bibl ein a year curriculum. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!).
The speaker will then make it clear when parents need to take their children out to their groups.

At Cornerstone Knutton the children meet at 9:30am and have their sessions before the main service; children are invited to join in the service with their parents.

At Cornerstone Community Centre our Chinese Fellowship children are walked up to the church building to join in with Big Fish- please arrive before 10:15am so the children at at the church and settled before the service starts.
 
Is there a dress code?
No!
Just wear something comfortable! 

Will I be made to feel uncomfortable?

Not at all!

We will be welcoming, and you will not be forced to do anything you are not comfortable doing. We want you to feel right at home and enjoy the service. Do join us for a drink and snacks after the service to get to know some people from the church.
