WEEKEND SERVICE TIMES
Sundays 9:30, 11:45 & 18:00
At Excel Church we pride ourselves on making sure you feel really welcome and at home in our Services. We believe that Church should be enjoyed, not endured. So why not come down and check us out. We have Sunday services at 9:30am, 11:45am and 6pm. (Please note that the morning services are the same, the 6pm service is different). We are sure you’ll love our church as much as we do and we look forward to meeting you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
We want you to have a great experience at church, so our welcome team will be ready to greet you when you arrive and give you one of our welcome packs. They will show you to a seat. You can sit pretty much anywhere you like, although if you have small children you may prefer to sit near the back so you can make a quick escape to the crèche if needed. Our service is pretty relaxed. We sing a few songs, (the words come up on our big screen) we take communion (bread and wine) most 9:30 and 11:45 services and someone will talk for about 35 minutes. Hopefully it will inspire you and help you in your journey through life. We usually finish with a song. Our first 2 services last for 1 ½ hours and our third service about 1 ¼ hours.
HOW CAN I GET TO CHURCH?
We aim to make church accessible to as many as possible so if you have trouble getting to touch, let us know and we may be able to help. The address is at the bottom of the page. We are within walking distance of the Metro trams (The Crescent stop) and Bilston bus station. Please contact us for more detailed directions. You can find us on Google Maps here.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear what you like! The dress code is casual, although you won’t look out of place if you wanted to wear a suit!
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
Children and young people are a high priority at Excel Church. That’s why we have a dedicated team of DBS checked people who will look after them and help them to get loads out of church. If your children are in school years reception to year 6, they will join our exciting KidShape team. They stay in for the first 25 minutes or so of our service and then leave the main meeting to receive their own great teaching and have stacks of fun together with our brilliant kids’ team. Those in year 6 can opt to go into IGNITE for the teaching part of the group.
We have a crèche for pre-
We also have IGNITE for any children in year 6 and above who don’t want to stay in for the talk. They can go and join one of our leaders and other young people in discussing the Bible together informally, with a game or 2 usually thrown in too!
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END?
Free refreshments (tea, coffee, squash, cakes and biscuits) are available after our 11:45am and 6pm services. They are also available BEFORE the 9:30am service and we encourage people to stay around for a chat as we believe that building community is an important part of church.
CAN I COME ON MY OWN AND MEET NEW PEOPLE?
There are a variety of ways to meet new people at Excel Church. Right from the moment you walk in the door, a member of our team will welcome you and introduce you to someone whom you can sit with if you wish. The best way to make great friends is to stay behind at the end to chat to people, join a connect group (these are small groups that meet in people’s homes across the area) and start serving in one of our ministries. There are many opportunities for you to get involved. We also have lots of social events that you may be interested in depending on your interests and age.
DO I NEED ANY MONEY?
We take an offering in most of our services, but as a guest, we don’t expect you to give. We are just glad to have you with us! Please feel free to just allow the offering bowl to pass you by, unless of course you want to invest in what you see. Refreshments are free, but we do have a resources area in the foyer where you can purchase books, CDs and Bibles if you wish.
