Worship at The Square

Our church buildings are open every Sunday morning for worship, either for a traditional service in the Church, or for Café Worship in the church hall. Most of our traditional services are also live streamed on YouTube, so you can join in online if you can't make it in person. See our Worship This Week page for up to date information. On that page, you can also find resources to help you in your worship at home, if that is your choice.

Both events can be attended onsite or online.

They are open to anyone passionate about EDI.

Please find more information and bookings here: https://www.eventbrite.com/cc/equipping-for-equality-3250479

Open Air Service

Sunday, 7th July
11:00

Dunstable Downs

The venue will be the same as in previous years, the overflow car park next to the Visitors Centre, which will be sign posted.

If the worship outdoors has to be moved, due to the weather, we will still gather at The Square Methodist Church in Dunstable. If this is the case the Senior Steward of each church will be informed, who will be the point of contact for sharing the news.

The service will start promptly at 11am. To allow this to happen please make sure that you arrive in very good time, and preferably no later than 10.45am as you will need to pay at the car park entrance (£3.50 National Trust members free), get parked, and settle in your seats. If possible please have change available for the car park stewards. Car sharing would be a good idea.

As happened last year we will have tables in the gazebo to receive food to be shared (optional). Whilst we encourage individuals to bring their own picnics it would also be good to share meal fellowship together, and to ensure that no one goes hungry.
