New to Church?
Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.
Key information about the church...
Where & when does the church meet?
Our Church meets every Sunday at 10am for our Sunday Service. Aim to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.
We meet at: Hampreston first School, Hampreston Village BH21 7LX
You can see a map on our contact us page.
What should I expect when I visit the church?
You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be an opening welcome and notices, followed by a time of singing with opportunity for church members to pray or read a passage from the bible. There will then be a preach from one of the leaders at the Church with a chance to respond at the end of the service.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens to the children at church?
We love to have children at church and provide:-
Childrens' Space - There is a designated area, with toys, for young children to be with their parents during the service
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their group.
Children aged 4-12 go to the The Lighthouse group, which operates on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
We have more information for you specifically if you…
