If you are new to Light of Life or just visiting whilst on holiday, here’s all the information you need to help you along the way.
What to expect
We are a vibrant community of Christians based in Ormesby St Margaret, near Great Yarmouth in East Norfolk. We normally have about fifty people gathering together each Sunday for contemporary worship and Bible based teaching which is relevant to everyday life. Visitors usually tell us that we are a very welcoming bunch of people! We are always happy to welcome new people into our church family, whether you are a lifelong Christian or simply curious about all this church and God stuff. It doesn’t matter what you wear, where you come from or what you believe – everyone is welcome to join us on a Sunday.
When do we meet and where?
We meet at 10:30am every Sunday morning, usually at All Saints Parish Hall, Scratby and finish around 12:00pm, with tea, coffee and cake afterwards. You’re also welcome to come and join us for a cuppa from 10:00am.
We have different flavours to our Sunday services according to which Sunday in the month it is:
All-age family morning
These services are aimed to provide something for everyone in one package. There’ll be some sung worship, children’s activities and a short talk, followed by tea, coffee and cake.
Teaching morning and Sunday School
Our teaching service is where we dive deeper into God’s word. The Sunday School team take the children (ages 3-11) for their session during this time. There’s also a time of worship, followed by tea, coffee and cake.
Café church services are quite different to our normal services. We rearrange the furniture to facilitate small group discussions on various topics, from finance to the environment. There isn’t normally any sung worship and the children are encouraged to join in with the discussions. Proper coffee and doughnuts available all morning!
Worship, communion and Sunday School
On our 4th Sunday we spend more time on worship, sometimes with a talk from the front, sometimes with time for us to talk to each other. We share communion together and the Sunday School team take the children (ages 3-11) for their session. As usual there is tea, coffee and did we say cake(?) afterwards.
On the few occasions throughout the year where we end up with a 5th Sunday in the month we try to do something slightly different. This could be meeting for Worship at The Chapel or going for a prayer walk. If the seasons are right, it might even be a BBQ. There’s normally food involved somewhere.
This coming Sunday will be:
- Christmas Worship Service on 23rd December 2018 10:30 am, at The Chapel
We want to nurture and inspire our children when they join us on Sunday mornings. They are welcome to move around the hall, dance at the front, make noise and have fun!
An opportunity for children to explore Bible stories through craft, games and interaction. For 3-11 year olds, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in the month, join us in the church at 10:30am. Coordinated by Jenny.
Baby and Toddler corner
An area set aside for under 3s in the corner of the main hall, with plenty of toys to keep them entertained on a Sunday morning.
When you come and see us, make yourself known to the person welcoming at the door. They’ll show you where to go and explain what’s happening that morning.
We look forward to meeting you!
