Our Facebook Group 'Hope Community Church Witham' and Facebook Page 'Hope Community Church' are regularly updated with news and video podcasts of messages from our Sunday services. We are mindful of the Church of England guidelines around Covid-19, but aim to be as flexible as we can.
Our vision for Hope Community Church is to 'bring hope and be community' in South Witham, and meeting together for worship on Sundays is central to that. We meet at 10:30 am every Sunday at Howbridge Church of England Junior School, Howbridge Road, Witham. The service lasts just over an hour. The school is well placed as it is on the border between the older housing in South Witham and the large new development being built around Maltings Lane. Our approach is contemporary, relevant, welcoming, family friendly and enjoyable. The music, prayers, and short talk are intended to help, guide, strengthen and (at times) challenge us. We look together at the real issues that each of us faces day to day. Meeting together helps us make sense of our lives in today's world. We have an activity area set up in the main hall for children and young people, and a play area for tots. We take an offering which goes towards God's work in our local community, but there is no obligation to give if you are visiting. Please feel free to stay for the refreshment on offer after the service, which frequently includes home-made cake!
Huddle - Under 11s go to their own group partway through the service.
Grub Club - Once a month we meet together at the Vicarage to share a meal together. Next one is 8 March after the morning service. All welcome. Bring and share.
