Above Bar Church | East

East site woods road

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

Sundays at Above Bar Church | East

Our Sunday gatherings will meet at Woodlands Community College, in the centre of Harefield. We hold one Sunday service each month, which starts at 10.15am. These services will share the same programme as at our City site

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 10.15am meetings. Children will go out to the groups during the service.

We love seeing young people (11-18) joining in and are passionate about finding ways for our young people to help out where they can. We have mid-week groups for our young people.

Ministries and East activities

We want to bless the east of the city and therefore are looking to develop some new initiatives. We also hope to be able to support a number of ministries as our plans develop; initially we will be supporting Transforming Lives for Good with youth mentoring, and Safe Families for Children.  

We will be playing football at Woodlands on Mondays from 9pm to 10pm. This is until at least Christmas 2018. Bring £4 and your football kit!

At Above Bar Church we are passionate about developing authentic community. Because of this, we love to welcome new people, so everyone can join our events and social gatherings. This includes our East Mum’s group, that meets in Cobden Bridge every week. If you want to find out more about our upcoming gatherings, see below, or email us.

Upcoming gatherings

Each Sunday service is followed by a community lunch, to which everyone is welcome.

Over the course of this year we will be experimenting with a number of different intiatives as we seek to learn and grow as a church. At the end of the year we will reflect on the vision and make plans for our future ministry.

All these events will be based at Woodlands Community College, Minstead Ave, Southampton, SO18 5FX.

  • This site has its own parking.
  • There is disabled access and disabled toilet facilities.

Getting involved

There are loads of great ways to get involved, whether you want to come along, get connected with a small group or serve on a team. Send an email to office@abovebarchurch.org.uk and one of our team will get in contact with you.
