WELCOME TO SHERFORD COMMUNITY CHURCH!
We’re a group of people who believe that God showed his amazing love for us by sending his son, Jesus, to die in our place on a cross. We want to get to know and love this wonderful God better, and we would love you to join us!
Get in touch with us to plan your visit
Please fill in the form below if you'd like to find out more about Sundays at Sherford Community Church. Our minister would be happy to chat to you before you come along, or we can arrange someone to meet you at the door.
Next, we will contact you by email to say hello and help arrange anything necessary for your visit.
THE 10AM GATHERING
Following current government guidelines, we are back to meeting together in-person every Sunday. We will also continue to live-stream our Sunday worship at 10am each Sunday on YouTube Live. You can tune in with or without a Google account, but if you are a Google user you will also be able to join in via the comments.
If you can't make it at 10am on a particular Sunday, you can also catch up on the service later on the our Sunday livestreams YouTube playlist.
Our Sunday morning gatherings this term will be suitable for all ages, including elements specifically for children and elements more geared towards adults.
The centre of all our services is the Bible, because we believe it is God's message to us containing everything we need to know for salvation (being brought into God's eternal family) and the Christian life (living as part of God's eternal family).
This term we will pick up where we left off in December and delve further into Luke's Gospel, looking at the amazing thing Jesus said and did at the start of His ministry on earth. Next we will journey into exile with Daniel and his three friends, seeing what it means to worship God in a hostile country. In the run-up to Easter we will be back in Luke's Gospel, seeing what happened on the day of Jesus' crucifixion.

We have reopened both our crèche and our Sunday morning children's group, following latest government COVID guidelines. Our children's group is suitable for anyone of primary school age (4-11) and includes age-appropriate Bible teaching through story, craft, games and songs. The children's Bible teaching usually follows the same Bible passage as the adults' talks, so you can discuss what you learnt afterwards with your child.
We usually start our Sunday services all together, and then the children are invited to join their group after about 15mins of the service.
All our children's group leaders and crèche helpers have been carefully screened following our safer recruitment policy, and all have an enhanced DBS check. For more about how we keep children and vulnerable adults safe, see our Safeguarding Policy.
Reading the Bible is the best way to get to know God, and reading it together with others is a great way to get to grips with it better. At Sherford Community Church we believe that what God says to us in the Bible affects how we live, and being part of a small group gives us the chance to think together how we can apply the Bible to our lives. It also gives us a forum for encouragement and support, and a group of people committed to praying for us. We currently have two small groups, one meeting every other Monday and one meeting every other Thursday. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
