We love guests!

From the moment you step into the car park, we want you to feel welcome. Every Sunday we will do our best to make you feel right at home.

We know that visiting a church can often be intimidating, so we won’t ask you to do anything wacky. Just come and be yourself.

We have a welcome team to help you find your way around and they’ll answer any questions that might spring up during your visit.

OUR SUNDAY SERVICES

9.15am & 11.15am

Weekly on Sundays

Inspiration, guidance and encouragement for living out everyday faith. Each service lasts just over an hour and we aim for them to be relevant and engaging for everyone. There are age specific childrens and youth groups too! Find out more below

IGNITE

2nd Sunday Monthly

A vibrant space to chat, eat, explore faith and encounter God. The evening starts at 7.30pm with a cafe with free food and drink. A relaxed service then follows including a great band, a short talk, the odd video and a chance for discussion.

Songs of Praise

4th Sunday Monthly

Gathering for inspiration, singing, friendship and cake. You can expect an hour long service starting at 4pm including interviews, well known hymns and songs, a short talk and some prayers. A free tea follows with hot drinks and cake.

Got Questions?

Where?2020-01-18T00:36:56+00:00

We meet every Sunday morning at our church building on Charlton Road, Andover. If you drive we have parking on site or Travis Perkins let us use their carpark over the road, as do Andover College (you just need the code from us to get out).

Weekly Sunday Mornings

Our two Sunday morning service begin at 9.15am and 11.15am depending on what time you like to get out of bed. We aim for the services to be roughly 1hour 15mins long.

Monthly Sunday Evenings

We run two different style events monthly on a Sunday evening:

  • IGNITE 7.30-9pm on the 2nd Sun
    A very bold and vibrant contemporary service that starts with a free cafe. You’ll find bright lights, lots of engaging worship, videos and plenty of humour.
  • Songs of Praise 4-6pm on the 4th Sun
    An hour long service with interviews, well known traditional hymns and songs, a short talk and some prayer. This is followed by a free tea with hot drinks and cake.
What Happens?2020-01-18T00:39:30+00:00

During the service our band will play modern worship music and most people will sing along, but don’t feel any pressure if you don’t want to. There will also be a practical and hopefully engaging topical message that lasts for about 25 minutes along with the odd video or interview. Our gatherings are relaxed and you’re free to engage as little or as much as you like.

What Do I Wear?2020-01-18T00:39:50+00:00

Our services are informal and relaxed; there is no need to dress up or act in a certain way – we want you to be yourself, so come as you are.

What About My Kids & Teens?2020-01-31T20:58:00+00:00

We run exciting kid’s and youth sessions during our Sunday morning services to keep your youngsters engage too. All of our kids and youth team members are DBS checked and receive safeguarding training for your peace of mind.

CABC – Childrens ABC (1-11yrs)

You can start checking your kids into our sessions 15mins before both the morning services start and they run until the end of the adult service. If it’s your first time, one of the CABC team will collect your details and help you and your kids to feel comfortable. You’ll be given a unique check-in ticket to be presented at the end of the session to ensure your precious little ones are safely returned to you alone. The kids are split into three groups to help them engage more effectively:

  • Bubbles 1-4
  • Splash 5-7
  • Wave 8-11

IMPACT – Youth (11-16yrs)

Our youth session only runs during part of the 11.15am service as we know how much teenagers love their sleep! We’ve found that most of the youth enjoy the worship songs, so they stay in for that part of the service.

Big Story Sundays

On the last Sunday of every month we hold a Big Story Sunday when the kids join the adults for the whole main service. We do provide Big Story Packs to help the kids get through the shorter adult talk and there is a room available with toys for parents to take their little ones if they need to let off some steam. We love having the whole famliy together once a month and it gives our teams a nice break too.
