Come and Visit Us

Come and Visit Us

Sunday mornings

10:00am to approximately 11.15am is our weekly ‘main event’. At the moment, whilst we can not gather together as a whole group in the church building due to the current pandemic, we are joining together within our own homes with a link to our weekly service.  The link will be available from our website front page and will always be followed by a 'zoom' after church chat over a tea/coffee opportunity.  Visitors are always welcome.  You could also subscribe to our Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1kA7F3etQ6fx48vLLd45fQ.
From Sunday 4th April, there has also been a small number of our fellowship outside on the forecourt of our building watching our service on a large TV together ready to welcome anyone who would like to come and meet us on a Sunday morning.

When we are able to gather in the church building, it fills with people of all ages, together to worship God and learn about following Jesus in today’s world. A crèche and children and youth activities run parallel to the service and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. There’s tea and coffee available both before and afterwards. To hear a Sunday morning message go to audio downloads.  See link for more details: http://www.portswood.org/what-we-do/sundays-at-portswood

Tuesdays

Portswood Pod (Baby & Toddler group) - 10:00am to 11:00am. Pre-schoolers, babies and their parents/carers get together for play, shared activities and support. 

This group has recently resumed after a long break due to the pandemic but our numbers as restricted to 30 adults and therefore booking is essential.  

There is a small charge of £1.50 per family. 

Term time only.

Thursdays

Open for coffee and a friendly ear from 10:30am - 1.30pm. Currently we have had to put this regular gathering on hold whilst we are out of the building but look forward to welcoming you on our return.  It is a great place to chill-out, chat, have a go at table tennis, join the board games table or art table. We also offer a free Internet Cafe where you will be able to access your emails or search the internet for information. We pause for a short 'thought for the day' at 11.45.

You’re welcome to join us at any of these activities and we hope that you will feel like a guest, not a visitor.
