We understand it can be a bit daunting if you have never been to a church service before. But don’t worry, we have all been through the same thing ourselves, and so to make it a bit easier, this page gives you some idea of what to expect and what a church service is really like.
Firstly, you need to know how to find us. Click here for a map that shows where St Bridget’s is. There is a car park in to the right just after the church is you are travelling from Berrow and this is open when there are services or events in the church.
The church is open when possible. During the week, access to the church is through a gate from the main and then through the door down the left hand path in the churchyard. If the bells are being rung, this door is blocked off, and entry is through the door in the far end of the church, which is down the right hand footpath. If you require wheelchair access, please contact us and we can arrange for someone to meet you and show you around.
When there is a service or event in church, we wheelchair access is available through the main doors, although there is a small step which we can help you to negotiate. If you are planning to come to a service or event, let us know in advance and we can make sure we are ready for you.
When you come into church, someone will meet you at the door and offer you a copy of our weekly news sheet, and an order of service and hymn book.
Please feel free to sit where you like.
We do have an induction loop (for those with hearing difficulties). If you use a hearing aid, please switch it to the “T” setting.
During the service, we usually take an offering or collection, as part of our gifts to God, but please don’t feel embarrassed or obliged to give. Simply pass the plate on. Many Church members give directly through the banking system.
There is a toilet located in the church room. Come out of the church, and follow the path to the far end of the churchyard.
After the morning service there is usually a chance for tea, coffee or a cold drink, served in the church room. It’s a great chance to catch up with others and to find out more about church life.
