Come and Visit Us

Sunday mornings

10:00am to approximately 11.15am is our weekly ‘main event’. We meet in a variety of different ways, some from homes online, while most are now coming to the church building  either inside our Main Hall or watching from a screen on the forecourt. We have a mixture of live from the church building elements and pre-recorded sements in our services.  The link to our service will be available from our website front page. Visitors are always welcome and we have a 'Host' team each week ready to help you throughout the service and answer any questions you might have.  You could also subscribe to our Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1kA7F3etQ6fx48vLLd45fQ.
 
 
Our gatherings all together in the church building fill with people of all ages, together to worship God and learn about following Jesus in today’s world. We have children and youth activities running parallel to the service (twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Sunday in each month) and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. We do something a bit different on the other Sundays but we always love having children in our services and aren't worried about a bit of noise!  We also always have our back hall and outside play area available with a few toys available for any parent or carer who needs to make use of this.
 
1st Sunday - Service, Children and Youth groups run for 1-16 year olds
2nd Sunday - 'Encounter' service with an extended time of worship and testimonies. The children and youth remain within our main gathering or go out for their own praise party.
3rd Sunday -  Service with communion, Children and Youth groups run for 1-16 year olds
4th Sunday - 'Engage' service where we go deeper into scripture with practical teaching and contemplative options.  Children, youth and their families remain within the main gathering for worship, fun and learning, whilst the adults go out to groups!
5th Sunday - Service, there is a children's breakout space provided in our back hall or we do 'Forest Church' at Itchen Valley Country Park for 1-11 year olds running concurrently with our main serivce.
 
We are now able to offer tea and coffee after each service delivered to you on trays by our wonderful 'Host' team. 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

What does God have to say about how we care for the poor? Well, quite a lot actually! Many will be familiar with these verses: “And if you spend yours...
