Sunday service at 10.30am in church

(Holy Communion on 1st Sunday of the month)


Pause for Prayer at 10.30am on Thursdays


It is wonderful to worship in this beautiful church in the lovely town of Bournemouth; some say that this is the most beautiful non-conformist church in the country

But having a beautiful building does not make a church.  The church is the people who worship and witness to their faith within and outside of these walls. So all we do here is to encourage one another in our belief of sharing the Gospel of Jesus with each other and with the world.

On visiting, people comment on the warmth and friendliness of our welcome.  We recognise that being made welcome and feeling comfortable is all part of belonging to the family of God in the church.


MINISTER: Rev Wilbert Sayimani BA

Why we love our church


 “The church to me is like a sanctuary, I feel the spirit of past prayers very much present.”

“There is an atmosphere of peace and serenity much needed in our troubled world.”

Young and old play a part in the life of our church

Younger or older, everyone has a place and a part to play in the life of our fellowship and we encourage all ages to participate. We give an especially warm welcome to tourists and conference visitors staying in Bournemouth and wanting to find a friendly church service to attend whilst away from home.

Effective safeguarding measures are in place to protect children and vulnerable adults. If you have any questions or concerns about safeguarding, please speak to Anne Piggott or Gay Hammadeh in church, or email

We usually end our services at about 11.30am and most weeks there is tea or coffee afterwards so please stay for a chat, so we can get to know you better if you wish.

Life's Ups and Downs

We recognise that life is made up of events, which bring laughter or tears and we face them in the knowledge that we have a God who understands our life completely. 

So, we are also here to support your family at your time of celebration such as  Weddings, Baptisms and various anniversaries. And naturally this support also extends to those challenging times for you when death occurs and we need to say farewell to family members.

The church is an expression of God's love

God not only understands us, God loves us unconditionally.  God’s love for us all has been shown to us in Jesus, through his life, death and resurrection.  It is Jesus that gives our life meaning and purpose now and he assures us of eternal life with him as we remain faithful.

If you haven’t met us already why not come along?  A warm welcome awaits you.

Directions by car

When approaching from the Wessex Way (A35) or Wimborne Road (A347), turn off at the Richmond Hill roundabout and proceed down Richmond Hill towards the town centre. Half way down the hill,  just past the large Nation Wide office building is a right turning into St Stephen's Road with the Norfolk Royale Hotel on the corner. Turn right here into St Stephen's Road and drive past the hotel on your left and one other house (The Islamic Centre). Our car park is immediately past this house on your left.

If the car park is full, we have an overspill car park available for use on a Sunday at the Bournemouth School of English next door. The entrance to their car park is also on the left 100 yards further down St Stephen's Road.
