OUR SERVICES

Sunday Worship 10.30am

At United Methodist Church we alternate our weekly Sunday morning service between our Great Wakering and Shoebury sites at 10.30am.  We welcome anyone to our worship and to enjoy further fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee after the service. 

Worship is conducted in a variety of ways, dependent upon who is leading the service. 

Being traditional Methodists, we are very grateful for a well-maintained pipe organ at our Great Wakering site which encourages hearty, sincere singing.  Our hymns and songs are now projected onto a screen, as are the readings from scripture, which are taken from the NIV bible.  Our hymn and song selection is chosen from ‘Singing the Faith.’  However, we are very happy to use new material, either for the children or those perhaps a little older.  From time to time, we use solos or duets to enhance the worship and give more variety. 

We welcome children of 3 years of age and upwards to our Sunday School.  After a short time altogether the children have their own dedicated time for fun learning activities.
