City of Peace meets every Sunday in Canary Wharf College at 11am. We understand coming to a service can be a strange thing, especially if you’ve never been before. Our service is a relaxed environment and we come in all shapes and sizes from all sorts of different backgrounds. If you’re fearful of what to do, how to act or what to say, then don’t be. Our service is very user friendly no matter your faith background and we’ll walk you through every step of the morning, so that you don’t feel like an outsider.
Generally most people arrive right around 11am. The first 30 minutes of the service includes a range of songs and prayers appropriate for all ages. A crèche area is provided for infants and toddlers (0-3yrs of age) for the whole service, if needed. After the singing and prayers, we have a Sunday school programme for children between the ages of 4-11 years of age, while teenagers and adults listen to a relevant Bible talk. Every other week we run a youth group for those in secondary school run by Hannah Luke, our youth worker. To finish we have coffee, tea and biscuits!
Dress: Come as you are. We’re a pretty casual bunch!
Teaching: A passage from the Bible is read and clearly explained in order that anyone, no matter their faith or background, might understand it. Our hope is to connect spiritual teaching from the Bible to everyday life experiences.
Music: Generally one or two musicians and singers lead in modern songs and hymns while also including prayers and Bible readings.
