Sunday 24th December
Monday 25th December
10:30am Christmas Day Service
Located in the Broadwater area of Stevenage and affiliated with the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, our aim is to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to our community.
Sundays are the main time for us to gather as a church to worship God and hear the Bible taught. After a warm welcome we spend time praying, singing songs old & new, and being taught from the Bible
Our main meetings happen each Sunday morning at 10:30. There are also quieter meetings Sunday evenings at 18:30 which often include opportunities for quiet meditation or discussion & prayer in small groups
Do stay around to chat after the morning service to chat and have a drink as coffee & biscuits are served
Families with children of any age are welcome. We have a creche for children of nursery age or below and a range of groups for children from reception through to school year eight
Having grown up as an atheist, Jesus rescued this proud sinner in 1996 while at university. Christ has proved Himself to be supremely wonderful: He has given me a glorious destiny and is so patient day by day to lead and transform me by his Holy Spirit. He united me in marriage to Elisabeth and gave us two children: Joseph and Chloe. After getting me through some theological study at Oak Hill College, He even led me to come to Longmeadow in 2009 to join the eldership team. Somehow He uses little me each week to preach his amazing Word, the Bible, to His beloved people. My other great loves are to keep fit and to watch action films and Strictly Come Dancing.
I’ve been coming to Longmeadow for over ten years now and was struck by the warm and friendly welcome I received when I first came along. In that time I have seen God work through my mistakes, often in ways I could not have imagined. It has also been great to know new people from all around the world when they have joined or visited the church. Crystal Palace supporters are a rare thing in these parts, but there are at least two in Stevenage - myself and John, another elder. I’m also a bit of a steam train geek and enjoy the outdoors.
I became a Christian at University, where I also met my wife, Janet. Moved to Stevenage for a job in 1967 and have been involved with the Church since then. We have three grown up children, whom we love visiting. I am retired from my job in publishing and am an avid armchair supporter of Crystal Palace Football Club.
I grew up in a Christian family, for which I”m very grateful as it helped me to get to know Jesus myself from an early age. Life since then has been full of opportunities and challenges to trust him more and experience his love for me. I”m married to Steph and we have three children, who alternately put up with or participate in my love of watching sport, playing games and searching for a successor to The West Wing.
I became a Christian at university, partly owing to the love and generosity of the folk I encountered at church there. My wife Gemma and I moved to Stevenage and started attending Longmeadow in 2005, and since then God has blessed us with three children.
