Our services are pretty relaxed and informal. We are a genuinely friendly community of people, who are happy to welcome you and help you feel at home.
A typical Sunday includes a time of welcome and announcements. We sing a variety of contemporary worship songs and hymns. Scripture is frequently read, either by a leader, a group of readers, or by the congregation as a whole. We offer prayer and observe the passing of offering plates (but, as a visitor, do not feel obligated to give).
We observe Communion once a month (usually on the last Sunday of the month) and occasionally have pot-luck lunches after the service. You are welcome to join us, even if you haven't brought anything.
Come just as you are. There is no dress code here. There are some who will wear jeans and a T-shirt, and others who still wear ties.
The presence of children is a gift to the Church and they are a reminder that we are growing. Relax! God put the wiggle in children; don't feel you have to suppress it in God's house. Children are welcome and at home at Orchard View.
If you have an infant or toddler and it would make you feel more comfortable, we have a safe and secure nursery staffed by volunteers who are regular attenders of Orchard View.
