Church

The Church in Hope Street offers a warm and friendly welcome to all who are seeking the Lord. Whether you are returning to the faith or just  searching, we will offer you a safe haven to explore.

The story of our church is amazing. 

After serving Sheerness for 175 years it looked as if our United Reformed Church, with a dwindling congregation and crumbling foundations, would have to close. Yet a decade or more on and £1.5 million in fundraising later our beautiful little church has been restored to its former glory and in addition a purpose built community hub has been established. Helping our community in many different ways. See Hope Street Centre for more details.

While the building work was being carried out worshippers turned to the town’s Methodist church for a place to pray. The friendship grew so strong that the two groups have returned to the new church together. An ecumenical partnership formed and the two denominations continue to walk in faith and worship together.  

Children are welcome  our Lightsearchers group is open to  5 – 15yr olds. Our lovely ladies explore faith with the children at their own pace and with fun activities.

 From time to time we offer various community events and fundraisers, keep a look out for our advertising.

Our Light house café offers a place to meet and chat with delicious home made cakes, and light lunches on offer too.

The Church offers a Sunday Morning service at 10.30 am entrances in Rose Street and Hope Street

All are welcome to come and join us.
