There are times when we have to make a declaration of what we believe and know, and then what that means because of what we hold.

In John 11, we have the moment when Jesus has told the disciples not to trust the words of the Pharisees, for all they said they knew was within their rule books. In the end, it wasn’t helping them to become anything more that judicious. Jesus then asks the disciples, ‘Who do you say that I am?’ This is a deep question.

It has implications not only for the recognition of the identity of Jesus, but the responsibility that comes from knowing Jesus as the Son of God. Such responses are not written down in a book of rules and regulations, but come from deeper places. Proverbs 3v3, Ezekial 11:14-21 and Ezekiel 36:26 suggest that capturing the real things of God are written in deep places of our humanity-things we come to know beyond reason, beyond rules, beyond human horizons.It was the experience of the Roam soldier at the foot of the cross.

What does recognising Jesus as the Messiah, the son of the living God mean to me? To us as a people of God? This is our question and challenge.

God bless you,

Major Geoff Chape

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. We have a time of worship with congregational singing and items from our musical sections. We have periods of reflection, when we pray and read the Bible, and our Bible message is brought to us by one of our officer team. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.


What happens to the kids at church?

We have a great programme for the kids at Regent Hall for:

Explorers (4-7 years)
Kids Zone (8-10 years)

We also have an active youth group, including Pulse - a Sunday session learning about faith, as well as regularly getting together for worship and just meeting up socially and for sports.

For more information about what happens in the children's and youth work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.

Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes. Our corps officers (Church leaders) and Salvationists do wear Salvation Army uniform to be visible in our ministry and witness.
