We’re so excited to be able to gather together as Emmaus Rd Aldershot, we hope you can join us on Sunday to worship Jesus together!
In the FAQs below you’ll find answers to some questions you might have. We really hope you can join us.
Kindly by advised:
Where: Park Church, Church Lane East, Aldershot, GU11 3ST
When: Every Sunday at 10am (Doors will open at 9:45am)
What: Our Sunday gatherings are where we worship God, grow as disciples of Jesus, and connect as family. We have coffee and pastries available on arrival and then when the service starts we have a 10 minute high energy kids slot before the kids head out to the most amazing spaces for supervised kids church; and twice a month, on the first and third Sundays, the youth head down the road to our other building for breakfast, learning and fun. Our main service has great preaching and time to worship together. After the service there is more time to connect with people, with even more refreshments!
Our gathered times of worship are all about encountering and worshipping God and building family together. We kick off our time together with a family worship song and maybe even a challenge before the kids groups open; then we spend more time worshiping together; we have great teaching both from people within the congregation and from the wider Emmaus Rd team; and we make loads of space for the Holy Spirit to meet with us.
If you’re arriving with your car, please follow the signs to the school car park across the road. This has limited spaces but when full there is lots of space on the road. Please avoid using the church car park so that we can save the space for those who struggle with mobility. If that’s you, please feel free to park there!
We have kids groups for pre-schoolers (Toybox), school years R-2 (Basecamp), and school years 3-5 (Summit). You can sign your kids in on arrival at the welcome desk and then we all stay in together for a 10 minute up front, high energy worship time for the whole family right at the start of the service. Then for the rest of the service the kids groups are open, led by a great team with awesome activities, games, learning and worship.
As well as the three supervised groups, we also have a space setup for parents with small babies. There are soft toys, sofas and even an audio link so you can listen in on the service. If you have small babies, you are of course also really welcome to stay in the main service with them, we’re not worried about them making noise, but the space is there if you’d like to use it.
For the youth (school years 6-9), we get together twice a month, on the first and third Sundays of the month, for breakfast, fun and learning. We meet at the main building with everyone else for the first part of the service and then when the kids go to their groups, we walk down the road together to our other building on Lower Farnham Road and then we walk back to the main building again at the end of the service. We’ve got great food, games consoles, and a brilliant team.
We have not one but two opportunities for refreshments on Sunday mornings, provided by our amazing Welcome Team! All of you caffeine addicts can grab a coffee and croissant on arrival before the service starts at 10am, and then after the service we have more refreshments available and a longer time to connect.
Yes! There are lots of opportunities to serve and help make our Sunday gatherings happen. If you’d like to find out more about joining one of the teams, email Matt on email@example.com.
