Welcome 

We are being a different kind of church during these challenging times with the continued spread of Coronavirus.   

Following government and Church of England regulations our church building is closed and our services there are suspended.  So we are finding new ways to worship and pray as a church community, to connect with each other, to serve our local community and to live and grow as disciples of Jesus.  

We are streaming services and providing resources to worship and pray at home, from our dedicated worship resources page and our YouTube channel.

We are offering pastoral and spiritual support through phone calls and on-line messaging. Contact details can be found here

We are here for everyone who lives in our parish, offering love, hope and care. Our church serves the people of Harefield, Townhill Park and West End. Please do be in touch with one of the ministry team, Vicky, Linda or Carol, by e-mail or phone. We’d love to support you and welcome you to our church family.

‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble’.  Psalm 46:1.

We will resume services in church as soon as we are allowed. 

You will be welcome, whether you have been going to church all your life, or if you have never been to a service before

We have a variety of services each Sunday, you are most welcome to come and see for yourself
