Church Overview

We are located on the Addington Road in Selsdon.


We have weekly worship services on Sundays at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm. 


Sunday morning worship starts with the children and young people present and the first part of the service usually involves a talk or presentation aimed at the youngsters, although normally of interest to everyone. For the second part of the worship, the children go to Sunday club and the adults remain for in depth teaching and worship. The "Visitors Guide" page gives more information on what to expect at our services.


Sunday evening worship is more varied in format.

  • "The Four O'Clock Service" is a traditional service with an elder congregation in mind, followed by sandwiches and tea open to all. We also have a communion service with prayers for healing.
  • On other Sundays we have  "Worship and the Word" services - a period of worship in music and prayer and sharing, followed by a speaker preaching from God's Word..
  • We have had Labrynth services, where a there are a number of stations around the building with material for meditation on a theme.

Accessibility

Disabled people are welcome

Access

We are situated on a steep hill, and so our building has two levels. Both levels however have ramp access. The lower level includes the main worship area and the coffee lounge. The upper area includes halls and the church office. The two areas are connected by stairs internally, but by a sloping paved driveway externally. There are no stairs within each level, apart from the stage in the worship area. We have chairs rather than pews, which enables wheelchairs to be accommodated in the body of the church
Almost all doorways are wide allowing easy access.
Access is available from the road by a paved driveway and footpath. The slope is fairly steep up from Addington Road, and gentler down from Foxearth Road. Wheelchair users may need assistance from Addington Road. Roadside parking is usually available, although there are parking restrictions on Addington Road.
Public transport is in the form of bus 64 and 359, which both stop close by, and buses 412, 433, and 409 which all stop within a quarter mile. London Buses are wheelchair accessible - please check the Transport for London site
There is very limited parking and turning space on the driveway - please contact the Church Office (Tel: 020 8651 4308) for advice.
