Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for the Chungs

The Chungs are a missionary family who have been working in Asia for many years now. Through learning the local language where they are based they teach and spread the Word of God to the community. Often in hostile and difficult situations.

November - Church Month of prayer

At this unprecedented time, we will be holding a special month of prayer seeking God concerning the church during November. Each week, we will be following this pattern:

  • Monday 3-4pm - Personal prayer wherever you are. 
  • Wednesday 10.30-11.30am - Church open for personal and corporate prayer 
  • 7.30-8.30pm - Church open for personal and corporate prayer Friday

Each Monday, Maudlyn will be providing a Bible verse for personal prayer. If you would like to receive the verse either by text or WhatsApp, please leave your name at the Welcome Desk or text Maudlyn on 07463 767896.   

Please do make a note of anything you sense God says to you for the church during the course of the month. On Saturday 28th November we will meet at 10.30-11.30am to share these things and pray together. Consequently, on Friday 27th November there will be no evening prayer gathering, but an encouragement to pray for an hour wherever you are. 

Online Services

We now record and stream the service live on Sunday to our YouTube channel. If you have been watching our services on Facebook we would ask that you subscribe to our channel on YouTube instead.

Tearfund's The Big Quiz Night is back!

Volunteers urgently needed

Thank you to those who have already signed up to the rotas. We still need volunteers to sign up for the cleaning rota so that we can clean the church after Sunday service. As we need to do more cleaning than usual due to the government regulations we will need at least three volunteers a week. Please speak to Helen, fill in this form on our website or email her -, if you can spare the time. Many hands make light work.   

Church is open

The church building is open for worship every Sunday.

  • The church doors will open at 10am to allow plenty of time for people to settle in before the service.
  • The car park will be closed so if you are driving to church you will need to park on Huxbear Road or Brockley Grove.
  • We will continue to provide a pre-recorded online service for those who need to or would prefer to, stay at home.

Pastor Steve is on leave

Pastor Steve will be on annual leave from Friday 23rd October to Monday 2nd November.
