Sunday meetings

We meet at 10:30 am each Sunday at Gillingham Primary School. The meeting usually finishes around midday. You can get an idea of what to expect on our visitors page. On the second Sunday of the month we usually celebrate communion.

Small groups

Much of the relationship-building in the church takes place during the week at a number of small groups which meet on different days during the day or evening. If you would like to know more about small groups, please contact us.

Social events

Part of being a family is doing things together. We sometimes go out for the day as a church or with the small groups for picnics, walks, BBQs and so on. We often eat together, either as a whole church or in small groups. We believe that Jesus has given us a life to be lived to the full and we try to live up to that.

Family forum

Three times a year the partners meet together to update each other and to discuss matters of importance to us such as our vision for the church and the community, finances, organisation and matters of belief and ethics. 

Special events

These are arranged on an ad hoc basis and include such things as women’s lunches and men’s breakfasts and film nights. Sometimes we run larger events such as weekend conferences and day seminars or courses.

Prayer

Prayer for church events and the things we are involved in takes place regularly (see the diary for details) and at 10am every Sunday morning to pray for that morning's meeting.

Courses

We run Alpha courses from time to time for those exploring the Christian faith and for new Christians. For ongoing discipleship we currently use the Freedom in Christ course.
