A warm welcome is extended to all visitors, friends and neighbours who are worshipping with us today.

 

Parents with young children are welcome to sit on the carpet during the service. Alternatively, there are toys in the room next to the foyer, where the service can also be heard over the sound system.

 

It is our custom to light a candle five minutes before the service commences to signal the beginning of a period of quiet to enable members of the congregation to prepare themselves for worship.

The Source is looking for volunteers who have experience of working with young people and have the time to commit to an initial training period of four weekly sessions of two hours, plus regular follow up training and supervision. It is expected that the mentor meets with their young person on a weekly basis for at least one hour for a period of six months.
