Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

At Goring Methodist Church we meet at the Church Building for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by one of our Stewards and they can give you a Welcome Pack.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the service in the Main Hall. It is a great way to meet people. All refreshments are free.

There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Stewards know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the foyer entrance for the Main Hall.

At Durrington Community Centre Church we meet at 10.45am and there is plenty of parking within the Tesco Complex Car Park including Disabled Bays.  The Community Centre is at 2 Romany Road, Durrington, BN13 3FJ and for our church service we use Room 1 and have the use of Room 3 as a vestry room for prayer.  Public Transport is by way of The Pulse or Number 5 buses which stop in Romany Road adjacent to the Centre.  The Centre is accessible, through the front entrance door, for wheelchair and disabled use and has toilet facilities, together with a disabled toilet.  We  currently are not serving refreshments after our services but a welcome is extended if you are visiting, or not been to our church before, please make yourself known to us and stay for a chat afterwards. 

Our Service

At both Churches the main service begins with a warm welcome. We then proceed with a variety of hymns and worship songs, prayers and bible readings.   The appointed preacher will  give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life.

Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
