Welcome!

We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s own son, came to earth to save us from our sins. Each Sunday we learn about God from the Bible, we pray to God and we share our lives with each other with a meal. Please feel welcome to join us at 8 am (Traditional), 10 am or our 6 pm Evening Service. All services are in English and a detailed description of what the services are like is found here.

What to expect

Coming somewhere new is a daunting prospect for most of us! We would love for you to feel as welcome as possible when you come to Guildford so we thought we might let you know on what to expect when you come. As an example arriving at church for our 10 am service will generally go like this:

On any given Sunday someone should meet you in the church car park as you come towards the church to ensure you come in and find our welcome/ reception area.

At the welcome/reception area some members of the church will greet you there and give you a number of things:

  • A name tag (we all get one and it makes it easier when meeting people to know their name).
  • A welcome pack – this will give you a bit more information on the church and a small gift.
  • A Service Sheet – this is the outline for the day but also has information on what is happening at church, contact details, banking details and points that we are praying about as a church.

From there you will enter the main part of the church building where we meet together and have a chat before the service begins. During this time, you may hear the band rehearsing.

There is usually a countdown timer to let you know when the service is due to start which gives everyone time to find their seats. The service will begin. There will someone at the front who will lead everyone through the service and let you know when we will stand and sing or sit and listen or pray. A 10 am service usually consists of hearing from the Bible, prayer and songs. At the end, we usually all enjoy some food together.

Location

We are located on the corner of Bolton St and Guildford Rd – a 2 min walk from Guildford station. There is some parking on site, but also see our parking map for a more detailed description if you drive to church.

The Blue circle is the church building where there are limited parking spaces. Someone wearing a high vis vest will meet you at the car park should you have any difficulties. The red lines indicate recommended parking areas on the street, with the red squares and a purple pin indicating the nearest parking lot within walking distance.

Let us know you’re coming!
