This is Us!
We have been here since 1900, when this part of Beckenham was first being laid out. We’ve grown and developed with our neighbourhood ever since.
Our buildings include the church itself, and three other main rooms where we hold our children’s work, after service coffee and regular shared lunches.
Sundays at 11am
The main weekly meeting is on a Sunday morning at 11am and lasts for just over an hour. At that service, we are a congregation of 30-40 people who meet to worship God. We have singles, couples and families who attend. The service is quite informal, so you should never feel intimidated. Children are very welcome – nobody expects them to be silent!
The worship songs range from Wesley hymns to Soul Survivor and Hillsong modern songs. We can’t promise what you will get on a particular Sunday, you will have to come along and find out!
We also hold a number of other events during the week. Twice a month there is a housegroup, which you can get more detail about via the contact us page. Also twice a month, we normally have a games night or a chance to play table tennis on a Friday.
The Guiding Association uses our halls for Guides, Brownies and Rainbows and our Friday morning 0-3s group is very popular.
Details of everything that is happening can be found on the events page, and the next few events are below:
