Above Bar Church | City

Church congregation baptism

Above Bar Church is a community of people who are passionate about Loving God, Following Jesus and Sharing Hope. We are one church across two sites, one in the City and one in the East.

Sundays at Above Bar Church | City

Our City site is based in the centre of Southampton, right on the high street. We meet three times on a Sunday, at 9.15am, 11.00am and 6.30pm. These services are key times for the church family to worship God, to hear him speak to us through the Bible and to spend time with each other.

During the Christmas, Easter and summer school holidays, we often have only one morning service at 10.00am. Please check the calendar for service times around these periods.

Each Sunday service is followed by tea and coffee in the lounge.

Our Sunday gatherings are at 69 Above Bar Street, Southampton, SO14 7FE.

  • This site is near to many city-centre car parks and on-street parking. There are also bus routes straight to the city centre.
  • There is disabled access and disabled toilet facilities.

Children and youth

Your children (0-11) are going to love their morning with us. We have fun-filled, age-appropriate groups as part of our 9.15am and 11.00am meetings. Children typically go out to the groups during the service, so feel free to grab a tea or coffee and bring it into the service. We run a crèche for babies and toddlers as well as our Great Sunday Morning Adventure for primary school-aged children.

We passionate about working with young people (11-18) and spending quality time with them. Our Box and Engage groups run at the 11.00am service for those aged 11-14.

Students

Students are very welcome. Most students come to the 11.00am and 6.30pm services, where the atmosphere is relaxed, the Bible is taught faithfully and relevantly, and sung worship is vibrant. We look forward to welcoming you into our family.

You’ll find mid-week groups especially for students, equipping you for your mission on campus. 

Ministries and city-centre activities

We are keen to be a blessing to our local community and therefore operate a number of city centre initiatives, including our Big Breakfast, a food bank and English Language conversation classes.

We also host More2Life — a discussion group for adults — which meets during our 9.15am service at Above Bar Church | City.
