Church Life

Regular church activities include…

Sunday Service

There is a Sunday morning Service every Sunday throughout the year and a special Christmas Day Service as well.

The Sunday Service starts at 10:30 and is open to anyone whether you are curious about the Christian faith, or have been attending church for a long time. The Service lasts for just over an hour, style is informal so come as you are. Children join in the Service for the first 15-20 minutes, and then the children’s groups leave for their own age-related time.

Procedures based on all the current government guidelines are in place for covid-safe church worship: feel free to wear a face covering (one can be provided if you forget yours) and use the hand sanitiser when entering the buildings. There is good ventilation with open windows so you may want to bring a warm coat.

Home groups

There are three home groups in various places around the town. Home groups are an opportunity for fellowship, conversation, prayer and bible study together. It is often easier to get to know people better in these small groups. If you would like to join a Crabtree home group please email pastor Steve at [email protected]

Shared Meals Together

“Bring and share” lunches are held 4-5 times a year immediately after the Sunday Service in the church building. Anyone can come and are welcome to join in for fun, food, and fellowship.

Prayer Meetings

Twice a quarter church members come together for corporate prayer. These alternate between days of prayer when church members visit the prayer room at any time over a 24hr period to pray, and group prayer meetings where we meet together to pray.

Business meetings

Once a quarter church members come together to discuss matters relating to the running of the church – support for missionaries, the fabric of the building, the church financial situation and to see where God is working in the community.

Missionary Support

There are a number of missionaries and mission organisations whom Crabtree Church supports financially and in prayer. Because of the sensitivity of some mission work we do not put information about them on the website.
