Welcome Back

We're really excited to be able to meet together in the Church building again! Church services will look a little different while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place but we can't wait to welcome you back or to meet you for the first time. Please read the information below before attending to ensure everything runs smoothly.

We are currently limited to the number of people we can have in the building so we're holding two services to make sure as many can attend as possible. The content of each service will be the same however our children's activities will take place outside during the 11am service only. You can book a seat at either service using the button below. Booking opens every Wednesday morning at 9am and will close on a Saturday evening.

We know many people will still be joining us online so we're continuing to stream our 11am serviceNo matter how you are planning to join us, we pray that you will experience God's love and feel at home at Woodhill.

Frequently asked questions

What if I book and then discover I can’t attend?

Email the Church Office (office@woodhill.org.uk) so we can release the ticket for someone else to use.

What if I know someone who wants to attend but doesn’t have online access?

You can either book a ticket for them (giving their details on the booking with your email address so you can get the booking confirmation), or email the Church office (office@woodhill.org.uk) with a ticket request.

What if I want to attend, but all the places are taken?

Email the Church Office (office@woodhill.org.uk) with the details of the service you want to attend. We’ll let you know if there’s a cancellation for the current week, or arrange to book you in directly for the next suitable service.

What about the online service?

We plan to continue streaming the Sunday Services at 11:00am.

What about teenagers?

Young people can attend Church Services and should be booked to attend as described above and will remain in for the entire service. We hope to be able to provide more information about YF soon.

What about children?

Sunbeams and LaunchPad will run outside for 28th March and 4th April. We’ll review the regulations after that to see how feasible it is to have them indoors. Parents of children in these activities have priority booking access for the 11:00am Sunday Service.
