You’re invited to Alverstoke Church where you’d be welcome to come and join us in continuing the 1000 year story of growing a dynamic and loving community which gathers in four great places of worship whilst offering two community centres and a youth sailing club!
A place for everyone and the place for you to discover new friends at St.Mary’s, St.Francis’, St.Faith’s or Leesland Neighbourhood Church plus St.Luke’s with The Parish Centre and The Brodrick Hall. We look forward to welcoming you.
Whether rooted in traditional words and choir or upbeat with AV, kids activities and worship band – five expressions of worship are offered every Sunday that should allow you to approach and encounter God as you feel comfortable.
Children, Youth & Families
Across the generations we want church to be a blessing for all your family! For you as parents or as grandparents as well as for your children. So we provide activities for the kids to enjoy on Sundays and during the week.
Kate, our Families Minister, would be pleased to meet you. You’d be welcome to our three Toddlers Groups, Messy Church, Youth Group and the Sunday groups. Plus there’s the Junior Choir and St.Mary’s Junior Sailing Club on the creek!
Adults & Seniors
Sharing and celebrating life in friendship and fellowship is foundational to our community. Here you’ll find many opportunities to meet with others, acts of worship that suit, small groups where you can belong, opportunities to draw upon your skills and serve, and a caring pastoral team when they’re needed.
Bringing all of our community together
We just love welcoming thousands to the Michaelmas Fayre and to our Christmas Tree Festival plus at the many smaller events throughout the year.
Many groups use our Parish Centre and Brodrick Hall. In fact we’re working towards building a new Parish Centre for the community to enjoy.
