Service Times

Our weekly service on a Sunday morning starts at 10:40am and is usually finished by 12.

We would love for you to stay afterwards for tea or coffee (and a chat if you wish).


What to expect

We were all first timers once and we know that it can be a bit daunting to come to a new church, especially if its been a while since you came to church or if its your 1st time. We wanted to share a little about what happens on a Sunday morning to hopefully help a little.

So you’re thinking of coming along to Thomas Risley Church? The first things to say are that you would be very welcome and you’ve made an excellent choice ( if we do say so ourselves).

Dress Code

There isn’t one! you may find some people in Sunday best but many people will be dressed much more casually and jeans and t-shirt is just as acceptable as suit and tie or posh frock. Just wear what you feel comfortable in.


Many parents can feel nervous about their children (especially younger ones) being disruptive in church. Please don’t worry too much, many of us have children and we love to have children in our service.

Disabled access and facilities

Our building is suitable for wheelchair users and we have disabled toilet facilities. If you have any specific needs, please feel free to contact us to discuss.


Our music is typically more modern “worship songs” than traditional “hymns” though we do sing both. We have a live band to lead the music on a Sunday morning.

To give an idea of the type of songs we sing, the song below is often in our top 10 lists


Plenty of parking is available in front of the church.
