We have many visitors and guests in our Sunday gatherings each week, and we do our best to help everyone feel really welcomed and ‘at home’ amongst us.

Some frequently asked questions are set out below, to help you know what to expect if you are planning to come along. We hope to meet you sometime soon!…

Who attends?

It would be easier to say who doesn’t! We have young and old, single and married, those with and without children, and people from many nations across our congregations.

When do meetings start and how long do they last?

Our Sunday services begin at 10:30 am in Stoney and 4pm in both Tamworth and Harborough. Stewards and greeters will be at the main entrance to direct you to where you need to go. The first part of the meeting is normally given over to our praise and worship of Jesus. Expect to see people singing, clapping, lifting their hands and praying. You will also see and hear the gifts of the Holy Spirit in action. In the second part of the meeting we will be taught from the Bible for about 30-45 minutes. The meeting will normally finish around 12:15 in Stoney and 5:30pm in both Tamworth and Harborough. At the end of the meeting you are invited to our Guest Area where you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of our hosts and leaders while having refreshments.

Where do I park my car?

Stoney Stanton – When you arrive at our Sunday service, you will be greeted by car park attendants in high-visibility jackets and they will direct you to a parking space. We have several car parks that, together, hold up to about 200 cars. Parking spaces closest to the church building are reserved for visitors (with the first few bays set aside for use by the disabled) so we hope to be able to park you close by. Tamworth – When you arrive at our Sunday service, you will find plenty of spaces in the Landau Forte Amington school car park. Find the nearest space and walk on over to the front entrance of the school where you will be greeted by our Welcome volunteers. Harborough – When you arrive at our Sunday service, you will find plenty of spaces in the Meadowdale Primary school car park. Find the nearest space and walk on over to the front entrance of the school where you will be greeted by our Welcome volunteers.

What is there for babies and toddlers?

You can have your baby in the service with you or take advantage of our creche & toddlers group. If your child needs you during the service, one of the Children’s team will come and find you. We operate a strict ‘sign-in/sign-out’ policy and all of our children’s team are DBS checked (CRB).

What is there for children?

We have a vibrant children’s ministry for 3’s – 13’s to enjoy. The children usually go to their classes mid way through worship to enjoy interactive, high-energy classes that teach the exciting reality of God’s Word, as well as games, laughter and the opportunity to make new friends.

Who will look after my children?

We have policies and procedures in place to ensure the safety and well being of all children in our care. Anyone who wishes to work with babies, children and youth at Living Rock Church has to undergo a DBS check (CRB) to ensure their suitability. All of our volunteers are trained and love working with children and youth to help them grow in their walk with God.

What is there for teenagers?

On Sunday in Stoney Stanton, teenagers (14 upwards) stay in the Main Hall for all of the service. We believe that the youth are capable and mature enough to hear the preached word in our meetings. However, we also have a thriving youth group which meets on Friday evenings for praise and worship, teaching, games and opportunities to get involved and learn about topics that are relevant to them.

Are there disabled facilities?

Yes. There are disabled parking spaces outside the main doors to the church building and school car parks. There are double doors at the building entrance and wheelchair access throughout. There is also have a disabled restroom in all three congregations, a lift to the first floor and a hearing loop in the Main Hall. Both adults and children with Special Educational Needs attend Living Rock Church and it’s our aim to ensure all aspects of church life are accessible to disabled and able bodied, alike.

What is the dress code?

At Living Rock Church you can come as you are. You will see people in suits or dresses as well as jeans and t-shirts.

What is the worship like?

We enjoy contemporary praise and worship which lasts about 45 minutes, starting at approximately 10:30 am in Stoney and 4pm in both Tamworth and Harborough. The children worship with us for the first 30 minutes before going out to their classes.

Will there be an offering?

Yes – we take up an offering each week. However, this is for church members and there is no expectation that guests should contribute.

What happens after the meeting?

At the end of the meeting you may be invited to our Guest Area, which is at the back of the Main Hall in Stoney and at the Refreshments area in both Tamworth and Harborough. There you will have the opportunity to meet some of our hosts and leaders while having refreshments. Most people stay after the service for tea, coffee or soft drinks which are served in the café and foyer. This is a great time to get to know people or catch up with friends.

I immediately felt loved and accepted at Living Rock - everyone is so genuine and you can see Christ in them.

We have been at Living Rock for over 2 years now and have found the church to be a vibrant mix of all ages with a passionate love for our Lord.

One of many things that we love about being part of Living Rock Church is how enthusiastic our children (aged 13 and 8 ) are about belonging to the church. They love the children's work and the youth work.
