In addition to the Sunday services we have an open door to the many events that we offer, some of which are dedicated to children.  Please see DIARY for schedule of what is on when.

Churches Together around Hampton

 

 

 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.
