Our modern building, with sanctuary at the front (with a beautiful and inspirational stained-glass window), and a large hall to the rear, caters for all ages. There are three clubs for children, plus another for birth-to-four years of age. Upstairs we have two further rooms, one of which is fitted out as an IT suite. (The Hall and Upper Room are available for hire - please enquire from our booking secretary Mary, on 01226 290568). Our Sunday morning services vary in style, with hymns and worship songs to suit the occasion. Most of our hymns and songs etc. are projected on-screen using ZionWorx 2014. We only have an occasional evening service at 6.15 pm on special Sundays such as Easter, Church Anniversary, Harvest Festival etc. Please go to our Calendar page for details of events, activities and services taking place.

Church accepts new dishwasher
from Dawson MMP Ltd
On New Year's Day 2016, a group of people got together to provide a lunch for "older local residents who were feeling lonely or experiencing isolation". Following the meal, finding that the church dishwasher had ceased to work some time previously, Dawson MMP Ltd decided that they would like to present Birdwell with a new dishwasher to help the church which regularly puts on meals for the community. Picture: Michelle Frost presenting the dishwasher to Rev Mick Neal for the church.
