Church Road is a growing church with an exciting vision for the future. It involves rationalising our site, developing new projects of outreach and service to the community so that we help people experience the transforming love of God, change lives and communities as we follow Christ. No matter how much we try to use social media, we would say you can't beat a face to face conversation so don't hesitate to ask for an appointment with Stephen, our Minister, if you would rather have a chat.
Our Minister, Rev Stephen Heath
The Autumn edition of The Record is published today (25th August) and copies are available at the back of the church. We would be grateful if distributors would take the number of copies they require for their circulation list. Additional copies are available for family and friends.
Following earlier problems with production of the Summer edition, some copies are still available for anyone who hasn’t received one previously.
