Our Commitment

A group of local people meet on Sundays to worship the Lord Jesus Christ. These folk work in schools and hospitals, in the community and in business locally, in the City and elsewhere. We range from retired to pre-school. There are married and single people strong and weak healthy and anxious folk.  In fact we are pretty representative of your local community; we are just like you!

 

We have a trust and belief in the promise of Jesus Christ that each of us is welcome and loved for who we are. We are always looking to find new ways to tell people of God’s love and interest in each of us whoever we are.  To do this there is a building and it is a central part of Hampton Hill High Street.  That is where you will find God – in your everyday life.  We would love to walk with you.

 

The United Reformed Church is an ordinary group of local Christians who have an open door to anyone who wants to learn more of the love of Jesus for each one of us.

 

This is warm invitation to you just to

‘Come & See!’ for yourself.

 

What of the next 100 years then? We believe that our church has a calling to help local people by offering all our accommodation for community use.

 

Here are some examples: 

 

Ivytree Nursery

It is a delight to have the Ivytree Nursery as partners with us.  Many congratulations to Ivytree for achieving the highest possible status that the education inspectors (Ofsted) can offer.  Ivytree was inspected recently and judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in all aspects.  About 40 families are involved with the school. You can see the children playing in the garden each weekday as you walk past.

 

Hampton Hill Theatre Group

The Hampton Hill Theatre group offers dance, drama and singing to older children.  Each Saturday morning the whole place rings with their song and laughter. 

 

Brownies

On Monday evenings a Brownie Pack meets in the Church.  There is a waiting list – partly due to lack of leaders.

 

Would you have a few hours to give?  Did you know that the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows have waiting lists of girls but are short of leaders and helpers to run the groups?  Would you be kind enough to see if this is a contribution you, a friend or neighbour might like to offer to families nearby?  Should you wish to know more or be able to help please contact Elaine MacGreggor

 

There are several other groups who are able to find a place in The Foyer,   Hosts of people use the facilities just enjoying being together. Why not see if one of the groups might interest you too?
