Portswood Church in Southampton is a community of around 200 people of all ages and different backgrounds. We’re glued together by a desire to build community around Jesus Christ and share our faith in Christ with others.
We're meeting weekly online, outside the church building on our forecourt and also in the Main Hall on a Sunday morning - the choice is yours! Most weeks are live streamed from a variety of locations with some pre-recorded elements.
Join us here online on Sundays at 10am or at the building for a warm welcome. No need to book, just turn up!
COVID statement: We are regularly reviewing our policies & risk assessment during this pandemic and may have to make changes at short notice. However, following our latest assessment (August 2021), we will no longer be requiring people to wear masks inside our church building or socially distance. The only exemption will be whilst using the toilets (due to the enclosed nature and close proximity to others).
However, we are providing an area for those who wish to continue to wear masks and maintain social distance from others on the left hand side of our church each Sunday morning. The church windows and doors will be open so we will continue to ensure that inside areas are well ventilated. In addition, people will now be able to sing inside but we would ask that it is at speaking volume. There are no such restrictions for those watching our service outside on our forecourt so please feel very welcome to sing as loudly as you like out there!
Finally, during this time of transition, we would ask for grace, patience, understanding and respect for others peoples comfort. If someone is seated in the socially distanced area with a mask on, please maintain your distance and consider wearing a mask before going into that area to socialise. Thank you very much for your consideration!
