Lapford Congregational Church is a small but lively church made up of people of all ages and many different backgrounds. It’s not just for people who seem to have life under control but for ordinary people who live in the real world! So, no matter what issues you face in your life, wherever you feel you are on your ‘spiritual journey’, you are most welcome. Our church is affiliated to the Congregational Federation and as such is an independent Bible believing church whose authority comes from God through our church meeting. All major decisions are made by church members at our regular meetings. Everyone who attends our church is welcome to these meetings to ensure complete openness. The church meeting is responsible for electing the Pastor and Deacons. Our Services We meet every Sunday at 11.00a.m and 6.30p.m. The evening meetings, held in the Sunday School room round the back, are informal and are followed by tea and biscuits. Communion is celebrated in the morning of the second (and fifth if applicable) Sunday and the evening of the third Sunday of each month. Our Leadership
