Set in the heart of Sprowston with a heart for the Sprowston community, we are an active all-age church of almost 150 members. While serving this local community for over 50 years, we’ve developed numerous links as well as a strong tradition of pastoral care and warm prayerful fellowship. Different styles of worship and numerous midweek activities for all ages help ensure there’s something for almost everyone…



10.15am – An informal 15 minutes of worship leading up to 10.30am called the ‘Gathering Time’
10.30am – the Main Service, with Junior Church groups and YaC and Cheese. A crèche facility is available for under 5’s. Finishes at approximately 11.30am, though Communion Services can take a bit longer.  Refreshments afterwards including a light lunch.
7.15pm – Open contemporary-style Celebration, with emphasis upon testimony, quiet space and prayer-ministry (including prayers for healing)  The service lasts between an hour and 90 minutes.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated every month (on second Sunday mornings and fourth Sunday evenings). We welcome all who love the Lord Jesus, irrespective of Christian background, and all who seek Him to His Table.
