WELCOME TO ALDERHOLT CHAPEL
 
We are so glad that you have taken an interest in our church!
 
We aim to be a Christ centred, Bible based, caring community who are enthusiastic in the opportunity we have to learn more about God and share the good news of Jesus with others… it’s as simple as that!
 
Much more could be said, but in essence we want to help people discover for themselves just how life-changing and liberating it can be to know God through what we believe Jesus has done for them.
 
All of our groups, services and activities, in some way, are designed to help people do just that.
 
At Alderholt Chapel you will find a complete mix of people: men and women, young and old, families and singles – real people, with their own struggles and questions too. In short there’s a warm sense of community, understanding and joy.
 

So, please feel free to pop in to anything you find helpful, or why not join us one Sunday for our main meetings with their mix of contemporary and traditional music, relevant teaching from the Bible, and opportunity to meet with others from our community?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SUNDAYS
 
Being a church involves much more than just what happens on a Sunday, however…
 
 Sundays do give us time out from our busy lives to meet, worship God together, and hear what He has to say to us through His Word, the Bible. If you want to get a better feel for the church and how it ticks, or meet people from across the church community, our services are the place to come!
 
Sunday Service Times:
 
Morning Service – 10:30am (with kids groups and creche)
Evening Service – 7pm (6pm from 27 Oct 2019)
Thirty-One° – 6pm (Fordingbridge Salvation Army Hall)
 
Refreshments are served after our Sunday morning service, and from half an hour before our evening gatherings.
 
Join us for a mix of contemporary and traditional songs, a community where all can belong, and relevant Bible teaching which helps set us up for the week ahead.
 
You’ll be most welcome!
 
 
 
STUDY GROUPS
 
If Sunday is an opportunity to meet all together to worship and hear God’s Word then our weekly study groups are the place where we apply it to life in a smaller gathering…
 
Our study groups (known as Community Groups) are an integral part of our church’s life. We’d encourage anyone who’s serious about their faith to join one!
 
Central to these groups is a Bible study, usually leading on from our Sunday morning services. There’s also opportunities to talk, pray and support one another – they’re a great way to get to know a smaller group of people better.
 
Most groups meet on Wednesday or Thursday evenings during term time, except on the first week of the month where we have an all-together prayer gathering called “Prayer Hub” at the Chapel. 
 
We also have two daytime groups available – one for those with younger children and one for seniors called “Y-Cell”.
 
 
 
 
YOUTH & CHILDREN’S ACTIVITIES
 
We’re a church of all ages, with groups that run for children and young people right through from age 0-18yrs…
 
Children and young people are well-catered for here at the Chapel!
 
We run our weekly Tiddlywinks group for parents and toddlers, and our Boys’ Brigade (with Girls’ Association) groups running from age 4 – 18. There’s also a monthly study group for teenagers aged 13 and over. 
 
During our Sunday morning services we run “Lighthouse Club” and “Fusion” for ages 3 – 9 and 10 – 14 respectively, and an annual summer holiday club up to school year 6.
 
All leaders and helpers at our under-18s groups are DBS checked, have received safeguarding training and are approved by the church leadership.
 
 
 
ADULTS & COMMUNITY
 
We hold a variety of activities and groups for adults and our local community to get involved with…
 
These activities are just one way we seek to help build community in our local area. 
 
We run a monthly Faith & Cake afternoon, Carers’ Cafe and Lunch Club (requires booking). We also host two Craft Club afternoons each month, and a Book Club meets in one of our members’ homes for the book-worms among us!
 
Periodically we also hold special events such as our Community Action Day, theatre and musical shows, our Big Community Giveaway (Foodbank donations at Harvest), Free Film afternoons in school holidays, and our ever popular Community Fireworks Night in November. See the What’s On page for more information about events coming up.
