WEEKEND SERVICE TIMES
Sundays 11:00 & 18:00
At Excel Church we pride ourselves on making sure you feel really welcome and at home in our Services. We believe that Church should be enjoyed, not endured. So why not come down and check us out. We have Sunday services at 11am and 6pm. We are sure you’ll love our church as much as we do and we look forward to meeting you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
We want you to have a great experience at church, so our welcome team will be ready to greet you when you arrive and give you one of our welcome packs. They will show you to a seat. You can sit pretty much anywhere you like, although we sometimes have a few rows on one side reserved for our kids’ ministry. Our service is pretty relaxed. We sing a few songs, (the words come up on our big screen) we take communion (bread and wine) most Sunday mornings and someone will talk for about half an hour. Hopefully it will inspire you and help you in your journey through life. We often finish with a song.
HOW CAN I GET TO CHURCH?
We aim to make church accessible to as many as possible and have a free minibus service
that is available to pick people up. Alternatively you can make your own way. The
address is at the top of the page and we are also within walking distance of the
Metro trams (The Crescent stop) and Bilston bus station. Please contact us for more
detailed directions. You can find us on Google Maps here. Please note that we have
recently changed our name from Bilston Pentecostal Church -
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear what you like! The dress code is casual, although you won’t look out of place if you wanted to wear a suit!
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
Children and young people are a high priority at Excel Church. That’s why we have
a dedicated team of people who will look after them and help them to get loads out
of church. If your children are aged 3-
We have a crèche for under 3s where parents are welcome to take their children. The sound from the service is transmitted into the crèche and there is a window into the main church service so that you can still hear and see what is going on. This helps both you and others to enjoy the service without distractions.
We also have IGNITE for any high school students who don’t want to stay in for the talk. They can go and join one of our leaders and other young people in discussing the Bible together informally, with a game or 2 usually thrown in too!
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END?
Free refreshments (tea, coffee, squash, cakes and biscuits) are available after all our services and we encourage people to stay around for a chat as we believe the building community is an important part of church.
CAN I COME ON MY OWN AND MEET NEW PEOPLE?
There are a variety of ways to meet new people at Excel Church. Right from the moment you walk in the door, a member of our team will welcome you and introduce you to someone whom you can sit with if you wish. The best way to make great friends is to stay behind at the end to chat to people, join a connect group (these are small groups that meet in people’s homes across the area) and start serving in one of our ministries. There are many opportunities for you to get involved. We also have lots of social events that you may be interested in depending on your interests and age.
DO I NEED ANY MONEY?
We take an offering in most of our services, but as a guest, we don’t expect you to give. We are just glad to have you with us! Please feel free to just allow the offering bowl to pass you by, unless of course you want to invest in what you see. Refreshments are free, but we do have a resources area in the foyer where you can purchase books, CDs and Bibles if you wish.
Please feel free to contact us for more information about any of our various activities. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
