Our church is a nondenominational multi-cultural vibrant church in the area of Portsmouth & Southsea. It is located primarily in a residential community and the church provides focal points for various community activities.
Our premises are split into an upstairs worship area and a downstairs hall. These were used every day of the week and most evenings for a range of activities before COVID but will continue as we begin to reschedule them once again including hosting ongoing training events. We also have ready to launch in January 2022 an area called “The Hub” which will be an eatery/coffee shop which we are working on details for now.
Our body of believers is currently 150 though we have many who are at present still attending our online services while others are now regularly attending Sunday morning worship, across one Sunday Service. We do have a second location which had been running just under a year before COVID which will restart in October 2021 and it starts at 4pm mainly catering to the student population and young adult age group.
We are currently reviewing some of our staff positions and this is the first one that we will be filling once again. We are hoping for the position to start latest September 2021 but can be a bit flexible with this but would look to have someone in place by mid September.
