What to expect at the church…
Founded in 1896, the church began its ministry in Horsell over 120 years ago. The church is a long standing Bible believing fellowship and is affiliated to the FIEC network of fellowshipping churches.
The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) is a network of over 600 independent, evangelical Bible believing churches mainly in the United Kingdom that preach the ‘Good News’ of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The pulpit Bible is NKJV and NIV Bibles are also available for use.
At present, we are a small group of between 15-20 people in attendance.
The worship consists of a mixture of traditional and contemporary hymns, accompanied by clarinets and a pianist.
Our main hymn books are ‘Mission Priase’ and ‘Christian Hymns.’
The church is spacious, employing sensible precautions and safe distancing. Masks and sanitiser are provided on entering the foyer of the building. The church also understands that some are uncomfortable attending worship services in masks, and so there will be those in attendance without face coverings. It is not mandatory to wear a mask at the church and anyone desiring not to do so, does not have to justify not wearing one. Specific doors within the church are often kept open to allow an airflow to refresh air supply and disperse any airbourne viral particles. Additionally, two air purifiers with HEPA filters to remove particles from the circulated air are in use to filter and clean the air for an extra level of protection (above and beyond guidelines and requirements).
The church congregation will sing during our services.
Services are now also being live-streamed to our YouTube Channel. The PTZ camera view is preset towards the pulpit, lecturn, and an occasional view from behind the congregation.
Following the Sunday evening service there is an opportunity to talk to our pastor and each another, discussing spiritual concerns or general matters, while maintaining distancing.
Acts 20:28 (NKJV)
28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
