  • Mar 3 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm Thatcham Parish Hall
    This is a face-to-face Sunday morning worship service where there is a mix of newer songs and traditional hymns. The preaching is expository in style working through different books of the bible. The children would normally have their own group, socially distanced, and leave for that part way through the service.
    Mar 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm The Pastor's House
    These are shorter times of meeting together, normally based in a home (currently the Pastor’s) rather than in the Thatcham Parish Hall. This gives a more cosy feel and also the nature of the time together is that of worship and discussional Bible study.
    Mar 6 @ 8:15 pm – 9:30 pm Andy and Nic's
    Our home groups meet each week on a Wednesday at 8.15pm thru till around 9.30pm. Week 1 is usually prayer & sharing and then the remaining weeks are Bible studies working through a series. Every couple of months we enjoy a social evening/film night.

  • Sunday Morning – 10.30 am

    Our 10:30am service of worship is a mix of traditional hymns and more contemporary songs. There is a time set aside for the children during the service after which they go to their own class.
  • Sunday Evening – 6 pm

    Our 6:00pm service – this service is a bit less formal and takes place in the Pastor's house (2, Loundyes Close, Thatcham RG18 3EB). It is shorter ending around 7.15pm. We have time set aside for worship and prayer followed by some discussional and applicational Bible study.
  • Wednesday Home Group – 8.15 pm

    Each Wednesday, from 8.15-9.30pm we meet for a time of discussional Bible study at Andy & Nic's house. Very often we study through a Bible book or perhaps a Bible theme. The studies are always very discussional and enable people of all levels of knowledge to be able to comfortably participate (or just sit back and observe, if they prefer to).
  • Friday Ladies Group – 10 am (Currently not running - sorry)

    Normally each Friday from 10-11.30am, the ladies of the church get together to have fellowship and take some relaxed time in the Scriptures.
