We hold a traditional morning service at 10.45am most Sundays, except for the first Sunday in the month when we run our Sharing Café from 10.30am. Several weeks a year we do not hold a Sunday service but join one of the other local congregations instead.

The traditional service consists of hymns, prayers, bible readings and a sermon, led by a minister or lay preacher. Holy Communion is celebrated once per month. The service is usually held upstairs except in the winter months when it is held downstairs in the meeting room. Music is played either on the pipe organ, piano or digital hymnal.

The Sharing Café is an innovative form of service which has now been held every month at Jubilee for the past ten years. It is an informal gathering with tea, coffee, soft drinks and cakes provided. The leader usually introduces a topic for discussion and ideas are shared in small groups around tables and then all together. The Sharing Café is attended by a number of people in the local community who have an interest in the Christian faith but are not necessarily comfortable with the traditional form of service.

We also participate in regular shared services with our sister Methodist churches in the circuit and with Marple Bridge United Reformed Church.
