Looking for a Christian event to head to this summer?
With so many active churches in Portsmouth, there’s always something to do here!
Messy Church @ Church of the Resurrection, Drayton
Every 3rd Saturday of the month 2pm-4pm (excluding August)
Like many other churches around the city, Church of the Restoration holds a regular ‘Messy Church’ day to provide a welcome couple of hours reprieve for parents who are looking to sit back and let their kids keep themselves entertained. Unlike the overly serious Sunday Schools of yore, Messy Church days loosely focus around a religious theme of some sort. Mums and Dads are welcomed into the church with Tea or Coffee whilst the kids get stuck in with crafting activities and games. Simple prayers and a celebration of the children’s work is followed by a meal and drinks.
Chalk Pits & Cream Tea @ St. Mary’s Church, Buriton
Sunday 12th August 2018
Scene Christian Social are a completely non-profit group of Christians who hold a number of events throughout the year. Less a society and more a wide social group of friends, Scene Christian Social offers Christian singles or couples the opportunity to meet like minded people and make new friends whilst taking part in a wide variety of interesting activities. This month they will be meeting for a walk through Buriton’s Chalk Pits Nature Reserve which will be followed by a Cream Tea at St. Mary’s Church.
Night of Prayer @ The Redeemed Christian Church of God Discipleship Centre
Every Friday night at 9pm
With over 3 million members worldwide, The Redeemed Church of God is a fast growing denomination that is unscrupulous in its open, welcoming nature. Presided over by the venerable Odunayo A. Fatunwase, their regular Night of Prayer is a perfect opportunity for newcomers to take part in some reflection, as well as more vocal prayers. Each session is well attended by a good number of people so you’re bound to make a few friends whilst you’re there.
The Four BBQ @ Harbour
Sunday 19th August 2018
Fashionable, young and modern are not often words that hear associated with a church, but Harbour Church in Portsmouth has done just that. Vicar Alex Wood is in charge here and he’s done a great job in setting up a church that has proved to be immensely popular with young people and students. Their Instagram-ready appeal is just the surface level of why they’re so popular, it’s the meaningful events, like their annual BBQ, which makes this such a special community to be a part of.
