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.
For more information on what to expect, see our Visitor’s Guide
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, T33, 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.

Beth Hill was born in Brighton. She is 19 years old,
Beth's home church was One Church Brighton,
Her family were members and she has always been part of the church family, along with her sister.
Beth grew up through Sunday School and joined Girls’ Brigade at the age of five. She was lucky enough to take part in various special activities through GB like the Trooping of the Colour, the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Concert and Prince William and Kate’s wedding. She also completed her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. With a mother and sister as officers in the Girl's Brigade company she quickly learnt how to lead sessions, and went through her Leadership training to lead physical and spiritual sessions with the girls. She was lucky enough to be baptised at her home church in July 2016 in front of her church and blood family.
Beth loves to play cricket, football and her guitar, She loves to swim and enjoyed street dance lessons when younger. She supports Rotherham United FC, having been introduced to them by her dad from birth. During school holidays, she has helped out with the CHOMP club, serving meals, fun and friendship to low income families in Brighton.
For the past year Beth has been on a gap year course with a group called Youth for Christ, on one of their touring teams known as Nomad, which is a touring cage football team. She has been lucky enough to travel around the UK visiting schools, clubs and festivals, encouraging teamwork within the cage and friendships around it. They also went into schools to lead and help out with RS lessons.
Talking to these youngsters was an awe-inspiring experience and she was grateful for the chance to learn more about how to interact with others.
For the next three years, Beth will be studying a BA in Theology and Youth Ministry at St Mellitus College in London. She hopes this course will enable her to be prepared practically, theologically and spiritually for any challenges that may appear within her ministry. Not only will this course provide her with a deeper theological understanding but it will help her to focus on practical aspects of Christian ministry when working with young people today.
