There is plenty for you as an adult with friendship, fun and community, chances to chat and raise questions about faith, and opportunities for  prayer .


In our church services we offer a range of styles, all aiming to draw us closer to God in worship and prayer and to discover more about His amazing love for us.

If you like traditional church with organ and hymns then try the 9.30 services at St Mary's or the 9.15's at Christ Church. If you you would rather have something more informal with modern worship music led by a band, then come along to the 10.30 services at Christ Church.

But if you're looking for something quieter and more intimate, then the Good Shepherd Netwon, the Thursday Morning communions at Christ Church or the 7.45 services at Clifton are the places to head for. 

If it's for the family the parade services at  Christ Church are for you, although you will find a warm welcome for all your family at any of our services (this link will tell you more about family activities). 

You can find the latest service plan here.

However, being church is far more than just the services and we provide a number of additional opportunities for you to meet, build friendships and discover more about God's amazing love for you.

Fellowship and Study group

These wonderful small groups meet during the week in members' houses and provide a mixture of worship, prayer and Bible Study in a relaxed and friendly manner. Each group will have a slightly different style to suit its members. They are also great times to build friendships, ask questions and discuss issues of faith and life, learning and growing together. 

A group meets at Christ Church, Brownsover on Wednesday evenings. The first Wednesday of the month is devoted to prayer from 7.30 - 9 pm. The remaining weeks begin with food at 7 pm, followed by a time of bible study and discussion from 7.30 - 9 pm.

On the first Wednesday of each month a bible study discussion group meets with tea and cakes from 2 - 3.30 pm at The Good Shepherd, Newton.

We really do believe  God cares and longs for us to bring our worries, needs and thanks  to Him. We have witnessed many answered prayer transforming situations and love to provide opportunities for prayer as often as we possibly can. We also encourage individual prayer.

 A Service of Prayer is held every Wednesday in Clifton Church at noon.  Prayers are offered for people, for sickness or for need of any kind. 

There is an informal meeting for prayer on the first Wednesday of every month at Christ Church, Brownsover from 7.30 - 9 pm.

Prayer request note-lets are available in the Church. Anyone can request prayers and visitors regularly do so. Prayer is also offered for natural disasters, the armed forces and our local communities.

Also there will be someone to pray with you after our church services
