If you are walking, the Main Entrances are on Hayward Gardens (pedestrian and vehicle gates) and Pullman Gardens. Look out for the white SWLV banners and once in the grounds, follow the dark blue SWLV banners to help you find your way into the building.

Disabled access is available through the vehicle gate on Pullman Gardens. There are disabled parking spaces and just past the school Main Hall and there is a disabled lift just by the main school entrance which will give you access to the Main Foyer.

There is ample parking at the school (entrances on Pullman Gardens and Haywards Gardens) and free parking on the surrounding streets.

What to expect

We are imperfect people wanting to find out more about Jesus and how we can love and serve others.

You are more than welcome to come along for free Tea + Coffee, pastries + fruit before the service starts. Served from 10.00am.

The Service 10.30 – 12.00
Every Sunday we gather for worship and teaching that can be applied to everyday life. We have a time of worship with live music, followed by a straightforward message. We’ll also celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion). Communion is a sacred time where we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. We receive the Lord’s Supper by taking a small piece of GF bread dipped in grape juice.

When you arrive, you will be served free tea and coffee and you are free to sit wherever you like. You won’t be asked to do anything and you won’t be asked to pay for anything. Just come as you are. We care far more about you than what you wear – so just wear something comfortable.

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from or where you’ve been, you’ve got something to bring!

At the end of the service there will be an invitation for anyone who would like to receive prayer to be prayed for.

For those aged 0-11 years old. We meet during the service, gathering to worship, pray together, play games, make things, read stories from the Bible and have a lot of fun! We want our wonderful kids to encounter and know God. Register your kids from 10.15am.

For those in school years 7-11. Our hope is that our young people know and encounter the transformational power, love and presence of Jesus. We are building a community founded on prayer, worship, and study the Bible together. We meet during the service starting with breakfast! We’d love to see you!

If you’ve got kids or teenagers, ask our Welcome Team who will show you to where they meet.

Got Kids?

We are passionate about the next generation and supporting families with kids in whatever way we can. 

We want to make Sundays a great experience for children and young people, and provide a safe space where they can have fun, make friends and explore faith together. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all our children, and you can find our Safeguarding policy below.
