What to expect at Beeston Free
We’d be delighted to see you at any of our services. During the Summer we have a morning service at 10.30am and another service at 6.30pm. Our services include singing, praying, reading the Bible and teaching from the Bible. You are free to join in with as much as you feel comfortable, or to simply observe. If you’d like to get a taste of a service before you attend, you can check out our YouTube channel for a livestream of the 11.15am & 6.30pm services.
Entering the building you’ll be greeted in the foyer by our Connect Teams who can give you additional information and directions or listen to any questions you may have.
English Bibles and Bibles in other languages can be picked up in the foyer along with a copy of the sermon, if reading along will be helpful to you.
Through the double-doors you’ll find the main hall, which is setup to seat about 200 people. Many of those attending our services are regulars but there are often visitors with us. We come from a range of cultures; some are just exploring faith, others are new Christians and others have been Christians for many years.
The meeting leader will help you to navigate through our services which usually last around 75 minutes. Please feel free to join in with as much as you feel comfortable, or to simply to observe.
Where do we meet?
Our church building is located on the corner of Broadgate and Salthouse Lane, very close to the University West Entrance.
There is a car park at the front of the building, accessed via Salthouse Lane. Additional street parking is available on Salthouse Lane and Peveril Road. A bike store is available next to the building. The bus stop outside our building is served by the 36 and Indigo services. We are a short walk from the University Boulevard tram stop.
There is step-free access from carpark to main hall and to accessible toilets in our church building. We really hope that everyone who wants to can come along on a Sunday, so if you have specific need or any questions, do email the church office or ask someone on a connect team.
Children are welcome in our services, with specific activities for 0-11 year olds in the 9.15 and 11.15 services. We consider ourselves a family and don’t mind if it gets a little noisy.
Our 9.15am and 11.15am services have a creche and groups for those up to school year 6; we have about 70 children coming along each week. These groups are led by teams of trained leaders and helpers who are DBS checked. We start with everyone together and at a suitable point, children go to age-appropriate activities.
If you’d like to find out more about children’s groups in advance, please contact James Thomas.
