A Message For Visitors

We always look forward to welcoming new faces, here’s some information you might find useful if you’re planning to join us for the first time:

Finding Us

You’ll find us at the north end of Ashton Hill Lane in Droylsden at the junction with Williamson Lane. For SatNavs here’s the full address and you can view a map too.

Droylsden Independent Church

What to expect:

Visiting a new place can be nerve-wracking. Although things can change from week to week as we may have a visiting missionary or some other special event  we’ve outlined here what you can expect during a typical Sunday morning service.

You’ll be greeted at the door on arrival, please take the hymn book and Psalter if offered, and a Bible if you didn’t bring one, you’ll need these during the service.

The meeting opens with prayer, or with a reading from the Bible.

Next we’ll sing some hymns or Psalms followed by two Bible readings relevant to the sermon.

After the second hymn the notices for the week will be read, then an offering will be taken. This is primarily for our regular members so don’t feel embarrassed if you’re not prepared, just let the bag pass by.

The sermon length can vary but is usually no more than 40 minutes. Most weeks the sermon is recorded and you can find some audio recordings of past sermons right here on our website.

The sermon is followed twice a month by communion around the Lord’s Table. Christian believers are welcome to join with us as we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The service closes with a final hymn and prayer. Light refreshments are served after the morning service in the Prayer Room.


We have a small car park to the side of the building but this fills up quickly, there is some on-street parking but please be considerate of our neighbours if you make use of this. There is also a free public car park about 30 yards along Ashton Hill Lane.

We have a hearing-aid loop system in the main church hall and a ramped entrance to the left of the main entrance, please ask the stewards if you need to use this as it is usually kept locked. We also have a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities available.
