We are a small, friendly, family orientated fellowship.  Our Sunday morning worship with Junior Church is held at 10.00am with communion once a month.  On the second Sunday at 6.30pm we join with Coulsdon Methodist Church for communion at either Whitethorn Avenue Methodist Church or at Coulsdon Methodist Church.  Please see the link to the services to see when our morning monthly communion takes place and the venue for the evening communion.  All our warmly welcomed to our services.

On the second Saturday of the month we host Messy Church from 3.00pm to 5.00pm.

On the first Monday in the month the Church is open for prayer from 10:30am to 11:45am.  Coffee and biscuits are served and all are most welcome to join us.

Prayer requests are welcome from the local community and a list is read out at the Sunday evening prayer service and at the Monday prayer meeting.  We also have a prayer chain of people who are contacted in times of urgent need.

Bible Study is held in the hall every other Wednesday at 7.30pm and this alternates with Wednesday Club which is also held at 7.30pm.  Guest speakers are invited on topics of general interest and events are organised from time to time.  This club is open to all people whether you have faith or not. 

We are active members of Churches Together in Coulsdon, attending joint services and events including the Good Friday walk of witness.  We join with three churches in the Reigate and Banstead area for the Women’s World Day of Prayer.

Our mission statement is that we “exist to worship God and to encourage the community to experience God’s unconditional love and His offer of new life through Jesus Christ.”

We also wish to encourage community groups and other appropriate organisations to hire facilities available at the Church.  Please email whitethornbookings@gmail.com for further details.
