Shoreham Free Church. At the corner of Gordon Road and Buckingham Road,
West Sussex BN43 6WF
We meet for Christian worship, prayer and Bible study in an informal setting. On the first Sunday of the month, we have a service incorporating Holy Communion.
Shoreham Free Church is a growing and active Fellowship. We are focused on proclaiming the Gospel through informal meetings, Open Mornings and practical support, particularly through the housing of Shoreham’s Foodbank on our premises. People often comment on our friendliness and the welcome that they receive from us. Although we are small in number, we are big in heart! You would be very welcome to join us at any of our events and at our Sunday meetings.
Here at Shoreham Free Church, our Christian core value is mission. To this end, we strive to love God, love others and glorify our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We work towards our calling of making Christian disciples through the sharing of our faith, carrying out good works and being Christ-like to those we meet.
Shoreham Free Church is part of the Countess of Huntingdon’s Connexion; a network of twenty-two churches in the U.K. and more than thirty churches in Sierra Leone as well as twenty schools. Please see the Countess of Huntingdon’s Connexion for more information.
Statement of Faith
- We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and on it rests all authority in matters of the spiritual life, doctrine and conduct of the life of the Church.
- We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son. We believe in The Holy Spirit who proceeds from both Father and Son.
- We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His death, resurrection and ascension and that He now sits at the right hand of God.
- We believe in the basic sinfulness of man and that the only means of salvation is by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, through faith in Him.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit and His all-embracing work in illumination of the Scriptures and the all-embracing work that brings life to the Church.
- We believe in the Sacraments of Holy Baptism, and the Holy Eucharist known as The Lord’s Supper/Communion, as instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, The Day of Judgement and the Resurrection of the body.
We are a member church of the Countess of Huntingdon Connexion which has historic connections with Sierra Leone resulting from The Countess’s quest to support the end of the slave trade. The Sierra Leone Mission (SLM) consisting of a network of churches in Sierra Leone, was born from this concern.
Shoreham Foodbank operates from our church hall (Huntingdon Hall) on:
- Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
- Fridays 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
