Visiting on a Sunday Evening?

The Rock church service, listening to a message from a leader

Our Sunday evening services are a bit different to our morning ones. There's no kid's work, its a bit more laid back, a little bit darker and a little bit louder! And we like to give as much opportunity as possible for the Holy Spirit to move and for people to receive prayer and be ministered to.

If you're thinking of visiting us, we have put together the following questions and answers so you can get bit more of a feel. 

If you're looking for information on our morning service please click here

Where do you meet?

We meet at Lutterell Hall in the centre of West Bridgford. See the Map and directions on this page. Our address is Lutterell Hall, Church Drive. (Postcode for Sat Navs is NG2 6AY.)

If you are coming by bus, then the city bus green line numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or Trent Barton, the Cotgrave and Mainline stop on Central Aveune a short walk from the hall.

What time does your Sunday Service start?

Doors open at 6pm with refreshments available - you are welcome to arrive anytime after that. The service starts at 6.30pm and finishes around 7.45 - 8.00pm. You are invited to stay afterwards to enjoy a chat over some further refreshments in our lounge or make use of our prayer team who would be happy to pray for you.

Where can I park?

We only have limited parking at the Hall but there are several local car parks within short walking distance. For more details on these - including charges, payment methods and capacities - click here. Either way, look out for our car parking stewards in hi-vis jackets, they will point you in the right direction.

Do you have baby-changing facilities?

Yes, we have facilitaties in our accessible toilet at the back of the hall  Please ask a steward for help or to point you in the right direction if needed.

Do you have a creche?

Unfortuntely we do not have creche facilities currently.  We will be reviewing this moving forward.   

Do you have children's/youth work?

We currently do not have children's or youth work at our evening service but will be reviewing if there is a demand.  Our morning service at The Hub has a full children's programme - you can find more details here.

Do you have disabled facilities?

There is ramped access from the side of the hall to a side entrance, please let a steward know and they will guide you in. There is a disabled/accessible toilet also.

Where do I sit?

There are no set seating plans, you can sit wherever you feel most comfortable.

Is there a dress-code?

No. Come as you feel comfortable - jeans and T-shirt wouldn't be out of place, but feel free to come smart if that is your preferred style!

What is the typical format of your service?

TAKE-OFF

After a brief welcome, we will sing song a few songs to help people connect with God - these are usually modern worship videos that are projected on to our large screens. Then we receive an offering from our members (we don’t expect visitors to give, but you are welcome to) and give some announcements.

MID-FLIGHT

Next up, could be any one of several things happening. It may be communion, a ministry being showcased, people coming into membership, someone being honoured or a time for people to share about an answer to prayer, a healing or a breakthrough.

COMING IN TO LAND

Towards the end of the service someone preaches a message with the intention of speaking a word from God straight into people’s lives. This normally lasts around 30 minutes, makes use of multimedia and leaves you with something to apply in your life.

TOUCH DOWN

At the end of our service we like to leave space and time for people to be prayed for and ministered to by God. Whether its a physical, spiritual, or emotional need, we will gladly pray for anyone. 

Do you serve refreshments?

Yes, both before the service (6.00 - 6.30pm) and afterwards (approximately 8.45pm).

Do you live stream?

Currently no, sorry.

Can I arrange a meeting with one of the Ministers?

Yes, if you can't get to see either of them during the service then contact us and we will set this up for you.
