Extract from the Pentecost service
Sunday 31st May 2020
When the day of Pentecost came there was a noise …
like a strong wind blowing.
Wind to blow away the cobwebs of our tradition.
Wind to freshen our faces and awaken us to the challenges of today.
Wind to fill our sails and send us on a voyage of spiritual discovery.
They saw … tongues of fire …
Fire to burn away the rubbish in our lives.
Fire for spiritual heat to ‘strangely warm’ our hearts.
Fire to light a beacon of hope for the people in our communities.
They heard the believers speaking in their own languages.
Speaking in a way that people can understand.
Speaking to real needs, having something to say on real issues.
Speaking so that our neighbours want to listen.
Words of the Spirit,
speak to us and through us,
that we may preach the living Word.

We are proud to be part of Churches Together Around Hampton and enjoy excellent relations with all the other local Christian churches.
Our group is made up of people of all ages and from a number of other Christian denominations. We value each other and try to offer something in return. The “something” we try to offer is the love that Jesus has given us freely and with no strings attached.
Should you wish to contact the Minister or one of the Elders please do so and we will be pleased to welcome you to our homes or come to you.
Situated in Hampton Hill High Street, opposite an entrance to Bushy Park the church has been a prominent presence since 1867 and in 2017 we will be celebrating our 150th Anniversary. From its beginnings as a Sunday School the Church has always had children as a key focus of its mission.
Our outbuildings were largely redeveloped and extended in 1995 and access is now provided to our three halls, offices and the sanctuary through The Foyer. This glazed area provides a light and welcoming approach to our accommodation and has a feature wooden staircase to the first floor hall plus a folding glass door onto the church garden. This development has proved to be very popular with our hall users and also for various church activities.
