Visitor FAQ

To make your first visit to Midsomer Norton Methodist Church a little easier, we’ve anticipated a few questions you might have.  If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What can I expect from a service at Midsomer Norton Methodist Church?

Our services always include songs led by either our organist or our band, the words are projected or you will be given a hymn book. That’s usually followed by some prayers and a sermon offering relevant thoughts on the Bible passage for the day.  

What should I wear to a Sunday worship service?
We want you to wear whatever is comfortable for you; jeans, shorts, dresses, etc. Of course, if you like to dress up a little more, that’s fine, too.

Where do I park?
We have limited spaces in our church car park, but there is plenty of free car parking spaces at South Road Car Park, on the High Street and also the Sainsbury’s car park next to church (2 hour limit).

 

What door should I enter? Is there an accessible door?
Our main entrance is the entrance visible from the High Street. Our accessible entrance is west of the main entrance in the link part of the building (usually signposted).

 

Once I arrive, where should I go first?
When you enter either entrance, greeters will welcome you, give you any books or sheets you might need for the service and are able to answer any questions that you have.   

 

How long will the service last?

Typically, services last between and hour to an hour and a quarter.


Is there a Junior Church for my children?
Absolutely! We have activities based on the day’s Bible reading for children up to 14 years old in the church foyer (the room you enter when coming through the main entrance).

Will I have to join in?
Not at all - simply observe or participate as much or little as you feel comfortable with.

Is a collection taken?
We take a collection every Sunday.  If you are visiting with us, you are our guest.  Please feel comfortable passing the plate right on by!

What happens during Communion?
We celebrate communion once a month. Everyone who loves the Lord or who wants to seek him more is invited to the front to receive communion. Before communion begins, the minister will give clear instructions about the practicalities of communion.

And after the Service?
Tea, coffee, squash, biscuits and conversation always follows the Sunday morning services. In the evening services there are not any refreshments. Drinks are free and are served at the back of the worship area.
