The best way to get to know SwanBank is to visit.
We want to invite you to join us for one of our three Sunday services at either 9:00 or 10:30am or at 6.15pm.
Now, like any good host, we want you to feel welcome and at home. We know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions.
So ask us anything!
You can give us a call at 01782 575129 or you can email us.
WHAT SHOULD I DO FIRST?
GREAT question! We recommend the very first thing you do when thinking about joining us to take a look around our website and find out more about what we get up to. Or maybe event check out one of our amazing messages from our latest sermon series here.
WHAT WILL SERVICES BE LIKE?
We have three very different acts of worship here at SwanBank. Our 9am experience has a more traditional approach with hymns, contemplative prayer and biblical teaching. If you are looking for a quiet experience with time for silent reflection this is the opportunity for you. Our 10.30am event is a vibrant, family orientated worship experience. We start with activities for all ages. Then around 11am the children and young people (ages 0 to 14) leave for Junior church. The event concludes with everyone coming back together around noon. On the fourth Sunday of every month the 10.30am event is an all age celebration. Children and adults worship together in a truly interactive style of worship. The 6.15pm opportunity is a place to encounter God and each other with strong emphasis on exploring the Bible and discovering its relevance for our lives in light of today’s challenges.
For the more young at heart there is ‘The Group’. An interactive, creative, Bible-focused youth group for those aged 13 to 18, starting at 8:15pm and finishing at 10pm.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear to church. Most people will dress in casual weekend clothes, so dress comfortably and you’ll fit right in.
The pastor will be wearing jeans, if that helps, and, you know, a shirt. But you understand what we mean, right?
HOW DO I GET THERE?
SwanBank is located in the centre of Burslem, Stoke On Trent. If you have a Sat Nav or use your phone then pop in ST6 2AA and then will send you right to us. If not head over to our Where To Find Us page and that will give you all the details.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR MY KIDS?
On Sunday mornings we have plenty for the all little ones out there. Whether it be SwanBank Kids or our amazing All Age services we have plenty to engage and grow our younger ones. SwanBank Kids runs from 0-14 years olds, in separate groups that cater to the specific age groups. All Age takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month and is an amazing time when we worship all together.
In the week there is plenty going on. Take a look around the Church Life Section and you will find all the info you need. If you have any question then just drop us a message in the contact form.
