sowing seeds of hope in the community

Welcome

church

We are a group of local Christians in Stoneleigh, Epsom, Surrey, seeking to share the positive difference that Jesus makes to our lives, and to discover, together, more of the forgiveness, peace, love security and hope that He promises to His followers.

We're learning together how to trust Jesus in putting this into effect in our everyday lives, as we journey together.

We’d like to welcome you amongst us, and encourage you to walk with us for a while: we'd value your company and friendship.

As we approach Advent, SAT-7 has a variety of resources to help you prepare for Christmas. There are two prayer events (on Zoom) on 25th November and an Advent Family Celebration service (also on Zoom) on 5th December. Sign up for these and find out about other resources, including a daily Advent prayer and study guide at www.sat7uk.org.

call to prayerDays of Prayer

WEDNESDAY 2 & 16 DECEMBER

We continue to have our fasting and prayer days on 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, from 9:00am-9:00pm.

There will also be a shared time of prayer from 8:00-9:00pm via Zoom. If you are able to join this, you will receive a meeting link on the day. We will for everyone email/ post through your door prayer points for the day, so that you can join in however and whenever you can.

  • Most people will want to pray at home during the day, BUT the church building will be open 9am-1pm for private prayer in the building.
  • In keeping with current government guidelines, you will find that the chairs in the sanctuary are arranged differently to allow for social distancing and we ask that you bring with you anything that you need (e.g. Bible, water bottle). There will be someone to welcome you, direct you to the hand sanitiser station and explain how things will work for everyone's safety. (We are so glad to be able to welcome individuals into the church building again, but please be mindful of your own health and vulnerability and stay at home if that is wiser).

coronaArrangements during the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) restrictions

Most Stoneleigh Baptist Church activities and ministries including home-groups, Alpha, etc. where people would normally gather remain suspended in their previous form, but alternatives are happening "on-line" where possible.

Meanwhile, we are producing CONNECT to members and friends every week as a means of encouragement and sharing of news.

We also encourage you to fast and pray on Wednesdays.

If you are willing to be contacted and asked to help with shopping etc. for others, please let the office know.

If you leave a message on the church answerphone it will be picked up and we will get back to you as needed.

If you require more information on Covid-19, please contact the UK Government or NHS websites.
