Guests will enjoy toasties, soup and hot drinks; newspapers and a book library; access to computers; board games and card games; movies; shower facilities; and even live music!

Our own vicar was interviewed for a new advert promoting the business JustPark, who help us manage a section of our car park operation. For just over a year, our daily parking has been run through the web-based business, with JustPark managing the bookings and payments, and simply transferring parking fees monthly to the church. This is an important revenue stream that helps to enable the work of the church in Hoxton - and we’re very grateful for it!
We’re a community of Christians who seek to extend welcome and hospitality to all.
We love to share the good news of Jesus with all the people of Hoxton, and we’re passionate about seeing the neighbourhood around us transformed by the love of Christ.
We try to put this into practice through lively worship, warm welcome, biblical teaching and a range of pastoral programmes. Whatever your background, we hope you’ll find a spiritual home with us in Hoxton.
Our Sunday worship service includes lively worship, biblical preaching and a celebration of Holy Communion. There are Sunday School groups for the children, and the crèche is available. The service lasts around ninety minutes. Tea and coffee are served after the service in the hall at the back of church.
On Sunday afternoons we host a fellowship of Christians mainly from Pakistan. The service is taken in a combination of Urdu and Punjabi, although English translation is sometimes available.
Once a month we gather for a more informal worship service with a strong emphasis on sung worship, prayer and healing ministry. The service lasts around sixty minutes.
*On the 1st Sunday of each month, we hold an All-Age Worship service specially geared towards the younger members of our church. These services are a little shorter than usual, and the children stay in for the whole service.
