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 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.
Please get in touch if you would like your child or yourself to be baptised. More information on our baptism page
