Music
Steve Woodford is the Worship Co ordinator.  A mix of new and old style songs are sung during this practice and service times. 

During the Sunday services we actively encourage children and adults to use the flags and percussion instruments.

Children's Church
We value children who attend the church with their parents/ carers and seek to help them to participate in the Sunday church service. We encourage them to play instruments and wave flags. During the preaching of the word (sometimes earlier), they move out into their own groups where they can learn about faith in a way that is understandable for them.
Small Groups
We believe it is important for everyone to feel they belong and we currently have two bible study groups which meet during the week in homes. One is in Sandown and one in Carisbrooke. It is anticipated that these will expand in the near future. These groups encourage fellowship and allow for prayer and study of the Word of God.
From April 2021 ----4 NEW Life Groups commenced - for social and getting to know you times. Speak to Rev Mark if you would like to be part of a Life Group

Prayer
Every Tuesday  morning from 10.00am until 11.00am we meet to pray. This is an informal time where we share needs, but also pray for our wider community plus national and sometimes international issues. This sometimes  includes communion.
Prayer also takes place for those who need healing. A person may request to be anointed with oil.
