Everyone is welcome at our services and no special or formal dress is required.
At Cornerstone Elim we have a very open style of worship. During the service we will sing, pray and give expression to the gifts of the Spirit. Please feel free to stand and sit during worship, however you feel most comfortable. At some time during the service someone will preach.

Children and Youth
Children are very welcome at Cornerstone Elim.
We have 4 separate groups.
At Silverdale Church we have a Little Fish creche for 2-5's. It is a bright room with lots of age appropriate toys and activities. Our staff team lead Bible stories, crafts and songs.
If your child is under 2 we ask a parent/carer to make use of the area next to the kitchen which has activities and a speaker so you can hear the service, but is not staffed.
Age 5-11 children (reception class up to the end of year 6) can join with Big Fish Sunday, who have their own activities during the service in our upstairs Big Fish room. This starts at approximately 11 am. There's always lots of noise and action in Big Fish, so please do talk to us if your child has any particular needs; we want everyone to feel welcome and part of the fun at Big Fish.
At Cornerstone Community Centre we hold our Youth Church, for those in High School, which starts at approximately 11am (youth meet in main church then go to Cornerstone) and includes relevant teaching, prayer, worship and of course a yummy breakfast too; we know how important food is to our growing teens!
At Cornerstone 4pm Fellowship the children meet from 3pm for bible study and activities and they then join their parents for the main worship service.
Our Chinese Fellowship at Cornerstone Community Centre has it's own Chidlren's session swith all ages joining together whislt the service is on.
You are of course welcome to keep your children with you in any of our services; we love the fun and life that families bring.
We have communion most weeks in individual pre-packed pots. We believe that the bread and wine are symbolic of the body and blood of Jesus, so we participate in the communion service to remember that He died because of our wrong doings. Anyone who knows Jesus as their saviour is welcome to take part.
