We don't mind about your background, how much you know about the Bible, how old or young you are, whatever you've done in your past, everyone is welcome to hear about Jesus and to know him here at Christ Church Ewell.
We expect a mix of Christians and people who wouldn't call themselves Christians but are open-minded, so you are very welcome if you belong to either group!
We meet on Sundays at 10.30 a.m. with tea, coffee and biscuits available before and after. Our services normally last around an hour and a quarter and you are welcome to stay and chat afterwards for a while.
Christ Church Ewell is in the centre of Ewell village (opposite Sainsbury’s) on Cheam Road, Ewell, KT17 1AD There is free parking in our church car park and also free Sunday parking in the larger public car park immediately to the left of the church. We are roughly a 15 minute walk from both Ewell East and Ewell West railway stations.
What can I expect?
We'll usually sing a mixture of new and old songs and often have a short interactive talk or object lesson for the children. Sometimes there will be a short testimony (a real life experience) told by someone. We have prayers, a Bible reading and an engaging talk explaining and applying what we read. We believe that the Bible is God's Word for people today, so we always try to explain it in ways we can all understand and relate to.
We usually stand for the songs, but the service leader will make it clear what is happening - you can just follow everyone else! We currently wear masks during singing only and when entering / exiting the building. We have windows open. (For Covid Safety). You do not need to wear a mask throughout the rest of the service.
Some services will be more creative and varied and when we do an All-Age Service there will be something for both children and parents and a few more activities.
We don’t take a collection, but if you wish to give towards causes we support, there is a box available near the front door.
On the third Sunday of each month, we have a service of communion where Christians share bread and wine together to remember Jesus’ sacrifice for us in his death on the cross. Any who are not yet sure that they are trusting and following Jesus are very welcome to stay; the bread and wine are passed around as we sit, so you can just pass them on without taking them.
What about children?
There are activities for the children. We want the children to feel part of church so we all start the service together. After a few songs, and often an interactive children's talk or object lesson, the children leave to their various groups for the rest of the service. In the groups they learn about Jesus in age-specific ways and with various crafts and games.
We also run some All-Age Services each term and these have more activities both for children and parents and are popular!
Is there a dress code?
We don't have any dress code, please come in whatever clothes you normally wear.
