New to Church?

Welcome!  Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our church at GPC.

Key information about the church...


Where & when does the church meet?

We meet every Sunday at 9.30am for our Sunday Service.  Aim to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.

We meet at:

197 Riddell Road

You can see a map on our contact us page


What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go.  There will be approximately 20 mins of singing with opportunity for church members to pray or read a passage from the bible.

After the notices there will be a lesson from our ministers Rev. Kris & Becky Heale, or one of the leaders at the Church with a chance for prayer at the end of the service.  
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.


What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at GPC:

Kid's Church - for all kids aged between 3 and 13 years of age (preschool to Year 8)
Youth - for all young people aged between 12 and 18 years of age

Kid's Church happens in the lounge (turn right through the main doors) and you will need to register them as you arrive.  Every week, the children will stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the service.  Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme.

Youth meet in the Church Lounge on Sunday evenings between 6.30 - 8.30pm, this usually involves noise!  Youth are also encouraged to join our Sunday morning service at 9:30.

Creche - there is a creche room for babies and children up to 3 years old.  Children must be accompanied by their parent/carer at all times.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under Join In.


Is there a dress code?

No!  Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.


Will I have to join in?

Not at all!  You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.

I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.

Please feel free to contact us.
