Sunday 11.00 am and 6.30 pm: We meet for worship, where the main focus is on the preaching of God’s word. After our services we have refreshments, where everyone is welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.
Wednesday 7.45 pm: We meet for a time of prayer and Bible study. Most weeks we begin with Bible study, after which we spend time in prayer. We pray for matters connected to the fellowship and then we also pray for one of the missionary societies or missionary endeavours we support as a fellowship. We support:
- Bible Faith Churches Kenya
- European Mission Fellowship
- Cubao Reformed Baptist Church, Philippines
- Lefkosa Protestant Church, Northern Cyprus
- United For Mission
Communion Services: We celebrate Communion before the morning service at 10.00 am on the first Lord’s day of each month. On the third Lord’s day, we celebrate it at 5.45 pm before the evening service. Where there are five Sundays in any given month, we also have Communion at 7.45 pm on the Wednesday preceding the fifth Sunday instead of our normal Bible study.
Christianity Explored Courses
The aim of the course is to lead to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is, the life he led, why he died, and how eternal life comes only through him.
Contact us for information & to join the next course.
Bible Study: On alternate Thursday mornings, members and friends of the fellowship meet for a time of informal Bible study together at the church building. The group decides what to study – they may choose to work through a book of the Bible, or to study different aspects of the Christian faith. For more details contact us.
CAMEO (Come And Meet Each Other) This is our ladies’ group, which meets on alternate Tuesday evenings in the church lounge at 7.30 pm.

Children’s & Youth Meetings
Honeypot Tots is our parents & toddlers group, which meets every Friday during term-time from 1.20pm till 3.20pm. Wall-to-wall children! Lots of bright toys for the little ones, refreshments for everyone and a chance to get to know some of our church members.
Thursday Club is our weekly meeting for 5-11 year olds and meets every Thursday during term-time from 6-7pm. Singing, Bible story, memory verse, games and a quiz!
The Sonshine Club is our summer holiday Bible club for 5-11 year olds (under-5’s can come too, but they must be accompanied by a responsible adult).
There are a wide variety of activities every day:- Songs, Outdoor Games, Bible Stories, Craft, Quizzes, Bible Verses To Learn
In fine weather the older children play outdoor games on the fields at the bottom of Ivy Green Road (they are accompanied by adults and supervised at all times), while the younger children stay at the church for less boisterous games. However, in wet weather they all stay and play indoors.
Following the games, the children will be told a story from the Bible. Each year we select a theme for the week and the Bible stories through the week will follow this theme. They may be stories about the life of Jesus or another Bible character like Joseph, Esther or King David.
The story is followed each day by craft activities and the children can always take whatever they have made home with them at the end of the programme.
During the afternoon we will also sing choruses and teach the children a verse from the Bible. The day then ends with a boys vs. girls quiz based on the story the children heard earlier in the programme.
Parents are welcome to stay and help and to get to know the church members. We are keen to talk about our faith and to share what we believe about the Lord Jesus Christ.
