WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IF YOU VISIT US ON SUNDAY

When should I arrive?
On a Sunday morning we start worshipping together at 10.30am.
Why not aim to arrive 10 or so minutes before the meeting begins.
Be sure to look for our welcome team as you come into the building. As well as welcoming you, they’ll try to answer any questions you may have.

Where does the church meet?
We meet in our own building on the corner of Cottingham Road and Chanterlands Avenue in Hull - see below for a map.

What to wear?
You don’t need to dress up to come to church. We want you to feel comfortable joining us. Please just come as you are – church is about the people you’re with, not the clothes you’re wearing. God knows us through and through so we don't need to impress Him (or one another), just relax and be your unique self before God who loves you in Christ.

Where can I park or can I get a bus?
We have limited on-site parking, however there is parking on Chanterlands Ave and Barrington Avenue which is unlimited on a Sunday.
The EYMC 105 bus service runs along Cottingham Road and there are stops at the junction with Chanterlands Avenue; their time table can be found HERE.  In addition the First Stagecoach bus services 3 & 9 run along Chanterlands Ave South and then into Bricknell Avenue (you'll need to walk up Chanterlands Ave North from the roundabout); their time table can be found HERE.

Will I feel uncomfortable?
We don’t want visitors to our church to feel uncomfortable. As a visitor, you won’t be singled out or asked to do anything you don’t want to do. You can feel free to arrive at the last minute, take a seat and listen in. Feel free to participate in as much as you are comfortable with and you can leave whenever you like. We want you to remain as anonymous as you want to be, but we encourage you to introduce yourself to us – we’d love to meet you and get to know you.

Is the church accessible?
Yes, we don’t want anyone to be excluded so there is full wheelchair access to, and within, the building. There is a fully fitted disabled toilet near the main entrance (with baby changing facilities as well) and within the sanctuary there is an Induction Loop System covering the whole room.

What will happen at the meeting?
Our morning meetings are generally a tale of two halves. The first is all together so that we can sing, reflect and pray as a whole family after which the children are invited to go to their own Sunday Clubs. The second half typically starts with us praying and reflecting on our world, community and those we love. After which we read a passage or two from the Bible and then reflect upon it and allow it to shine a light on our own lives.

What happens at the end?
After the morning service we gather in the hall for fellowship over tea, coffee and cold drinks, sometimes with cakes or other treats (all free of charge); it’s a great opportunity to meet others.

Do I need money?
No you don’t. We do typically take up an offering for the work of the church but we place no obligation on anyone to do so for as God said through the prophet Isaiah “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you.

Please come as you are and relax, it is our prayer you’ll enjoy this time together with us and allow God to minister to you.

Do please contact us if you have questions that remain unanswered.
