I sometimes go to an earlier service if we have a busy day planned. DH and the children always go to the 11am, but are out in groups for most of it. Either way, I am on my own (apart from the 499 other members of the church family).
Meant to say that we move around quite a lot and joining a new Church community has always been, for me, a great way to meet new friends and like minded people. I've always got involved pretty quickly in all the community/outreach aspects as well .
