For those who are exploring the possibility of coming to Welton, we’d recommend a ‘Welcome Meal’ - these take place every few months for those wanting to find out a bit more about the church, it’s vision and where you might fit. All over a great meal. Click here and we’ll email with the next Welcome Meal date. For now, here’s a few answers to some common questions people ask…

When & where does the church meet?
Somervale School every Sunday morning at 10:30am and every Sunday evening at 6.00pm at our Chapel in Welton. Click here for a map.

What should I expect when I visit?
A warm welcome! Church for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Some are already Christians, others exploring and growing their faith. Lively worship, great Bible teaching and groups for all ages. Services last for about an hour and a half, and always end with coffee!

What happens to the kids at church?
We have a fantastic range of groups for children and teenagers called Energy Groups. On Sundays, children and youth stay with their parents or carers for the first half an hour, then head to their own groups for an hour. There are mid-week groups too.
