We thank God that we are now open for physical services twice on the Lord’s Day (at 11.00am and 6.30pm). While we continue to maintain social distancing in the worship area, masks are now optional at all times. You do not have to wear a mask for singing or at any other time on Sundays or midweek. We now have refreshements after both services, where there will not be social distancing. You can see the full list of guidelines here. Both Sunday services (11.00am and 6.30pm) will continue to be live streamed on YouTube (see below). Some youth and children’s groups will re-start physically in September. There are midweek Bible studies and prayer meetings by video conference every Wednesday at 10.30am and also on various days in the evening … please contact us for more details. LIVE STREAMING OF SERVICES ON YOUTUBE We will be streaming our Sunday services, God willing, every Sunday at 11.00am and 6.30pm.

Bible Study – Now meeting physically

Once a fortnight, on a Thursday evening from 8pm to 9pm, there is a central meeting in the back halls of the church. This is sometimes a member’s meeting, but on other occasions it is an interactive Bible Study. The format may change sometimes. For example, we have done a course which took us through a Christian book, using a DVD presentation to get us thinking. But usually we look at a passage from the Bible and respond to questions set by the Bible Study Leader. The evenings are designed to help us apply God’s Word to our lives. everyone is welcome! Please use the entrance round to the right hand side of the church, just along the drive. If you can’t do Thursday evenings, the Bible studies are repeated on a Wednesday morning at 10.30am (usually the one immediately BEFORE the Thursday). Upcoming dates for Bible Studies :  Weds 3rd Nov 10.30am, Thurs 4th Nov 8pm, Weds 17th Nov 10.30am, Thurs 18th Nov 8pm, Weds 1st Dec 10.30am, Thurs 2nd Dec 8pm, Weds 15th Dec 10.30am, Thurs 16th Dec 8pm

Homegroups – Now meeting physically

On those weeks when there is NOT a centralised meeting at the church, we have a number of home prayer groups around Walthamstow. These groups meet for 45-60 minutes and start with a very brief passage from the Bible and a comment from the group leader. But the central focus is prayer. No-one has to pray, but we encourage believers to call out to God and ask him to be at work in our lives, the life of the church, the lives of others we know and in the life of our nation and our world. For more information on locations, days and times, please contact us.

Wednesday Morning Prayer Meetings – Now Meeting Physically

Every Wednesday at 10.30am there is a prayer meeting in the back hall of the church (or sometimes the lounge, especially in colder weather!!). This lasts for one hour, and begins with a thought from the Bible before focusing on prayer for the church, the nation and the world, as well as individuals we know. Everyone is welcome! On Wednesdays before a Thursday Bible Study, we run a repeat of the Thursday Bible Study. Again, all are welcome.

Central Prayer Meetings – Not running currently

Three times a year, we have a prayer meeting in the back halls of the church on a Wednesday evening at 8.00pm. Homegroups that week are cancelled, as is the Wednesday Morning Prayer Meeting. We meet to express our dependence upon God for every aspect of ministry here at Central, and to worship him together. All are welcome!
