Cowley Road Methodist Church Centre

Interactive All Age Services

Usually, on the fourth Sunday of the month (but not always), we have a more interactive All Age service. These use a range of styles, including drama-led, prayer stations, café church format, favourite hymns, amongst others.

Prayer station services usually begin and end in the same way, with an opening prayer and song at the start, and series of prayers (including the Lord's Prayer) and song at the end. In the middle, there's usually about half an hour of time to move around the church and engage with prayerful activities of a more reflective and creative nature.

Cafe church services start with everyone sat around tables with refreshments available. There is then a series of mini talks and opportunities for discussion along with hymns and prayers of a more creative nature.

'Songs of Fellowship' services tend to happen twice a year - towards Christmas and sometime in the summer. These usually include about 10 of our favourite hymns, with short prayers, readings, and reflections, and are often led by a worship band. If you have a favourite hymn or story you'd like to share, please let Libby (our community chaplain and outreach worker) know!

Our next interactive All Age service is on Sunday 14th July when we'll be sharing our favourite stories, songs, and food together.

We're also hoping to have a couple of special celebrations over the next few months. Details of which are here.
