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!
THE 10AM GATHERING
Following the latest Government announcement, we have suspended all our in-person gatherings for the duration of the national lockdown. As in the previous lockdowns, we will be live-streaming our Sunday worship at 10am each Sunday on Facebook Live. You can tune in with or without a Facebook account, but if you are a Facebook user you will also be able to join in via the comments.
Every week we will also have a Zoom meeting straight after the livestream: a social catch up over coffee. The Zoom link will be posted in the comments towards the end of each livestream.
If you can't make it at 10am on a particular Sunday, you can also catch up on the service later on the videos section of our Facebook page.
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 John's Gospel, looking at 7 amazing miraculous signs performed by Jesus that show not just what He can do but who He is. Next we will have a short series looking at who God is (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), before picking up in John to look at what happened around Jesus' crucifixion.

For at least this term all our Sunday gatherings will be all-age: we'll feature child-friendly songs alongside adult songs, and we'll have teaching that engages children and adults. We will also provide weekly activity and craft sheets from the team at Mustard Seeds to help children engage with the teaching topic of the gathering. You can download these from our children's resources page.
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.
