Dewsbury Church of the Nazarene Loving God and Loving Neighbour

I’m New

However you’ve come across us, we are glad to see you. We recognise it is quite a step to come along to a new church or even to step into a church for the first time. Here, we try and answer any questions you may have to make it a less mysterious experience. Our hope is you’ll feel comfortable to come along and check us out. If you have any other questions we might have missed, then please contact us.

We are more than just a church which meets on a Sunday, as you will see from our Church Life page, but this page gives more details on our Sunday services.

Who is welcome?

Anyone! Whether you’re just exploring, curious, are new to the faith or have been a Christian for years you are welcome to join us. We are a welcoming church which recognises that no-one is perfect, ourselves included. If you’re visiting for the first time you will be made welcome, but not singled-out. Our aim is to made you feel at home, not make you uncomfortable. If there is anything you’re unsure about, just ask!

Where do I go?

Dewsbury Church of the Nazarene, Aldams Road, Dewsbury, WF12 8AE.

You will find the church next to Dewsbury police station. There is a car-park adjacent to the church building which is accessible off Old Westgate.

What time?

Our service begins at 11:00. There is also a prayer meeting at 10:00 if you wish to come for that too.

The service usually finishes between 12:15 and 12:30.

What do I wear?

Whatever you feel comfortable in! There is no expected dress code, although we wouldn’t recommend Pyjamas!

What should I expect?

Our services generally contain singing (a mixture of traditional hymns and more contemporary songs), praying together, Bible readings and a message which is Biblical and contains relevant application. We also take an offering with the money going towards the ongoing running of the church. This is done as part of our worship in recognition of what God has given us. There is no obligation for visitors to give anything.

On a monthly basis we celebrate Communion together where we remember the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples before his death.

Is there something for my children?

Yes, at some point during the weekly Sunday worship service children will be invited to head out to Sunday School. Here, they will explore the Bible in a creative, age-appropriate way.

Occasionally there will be an all-age service where the children will be encouraged to stay in for the whole service and it will be targeted accordingly.

Crèche facilities are also available, but these are unsupervised. There is, though, a speaker in the crèche enabling those caring for children to still be able to hear the service.

Baby changing facilities are available on the ground floor of the building.

What about after the service?

Refreshments are available before and after our services. Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits are a weekly occurrence. If there is a birthday or a celebration there is likely to be cake. We love cake!

Is your church accessible?

There is ramped access into the church building from the car park. There is also an accessbile toilet on the ground floor. The upper floor is only accessible via stairs, but the main worship area and refreshment room are all on the ground floor.
