The life of Yapton Free Church is a pretty active one. The most frequent meeting is of course our Sunday Service, but even that is at different venues, so please check the what's on page to see where we are this week.
Our kids ministry is headed up by Jo and Naomi. The children gather after joining the adults for a couple of worship songs and then have their own time to worship, pray have fun, enjoy games and bible stories.
This is primarily for 5-11 year olds, who meet in the small hall.
Jo Jeffers runs a Creche for 0-4 year olds every other week. But when Creche is not running, they are welcome to join in with Kids Club with a parent/carer.
We have our annual 'Holiday Club' for a week at the end of July in a marquee on Yapton Village Green, where about 150 school age children attend each morning 10am-12noon. We have fun, games, songs, sports, drama, craft and much more. As well as having a 'Five-a-side Football Competition', 'Teddy Bears Picnic' and 'Senior Citizens Cream Tea'
Conferences & Events
The women of Yapton love to get away together for fellowship & teaching. They regularly plan ahead for days out and conferences eg. Hillsong Colour conference.
We love to meet up! The larger church gatherings have a dynamic of their own that suits joining together with our band led worship and hearing about teaching from the bible, but there are also times when it's really nice to meet in smaller groups. For these, usually meeting in someones home, we have space to talk and engage on a deeper level. It's great to get to know people that really care and support each other in life's journey.
The home groups mostly meet on a Thursday night every week, but not exclusively. We think it's a really useful part of the life of Yapton Free Church to be a part of one of these groups and believe you'll get a lot out of it if you came along.
To 'connect' with a group, or just find out a bit more about them, please contact Reg Hawks.
We hold a Men's Breakfast once a month, normally on the first Saturday of the month. 8:00am until 10:00am approximately. It is very much an open gathering of men across the village who have a hunger for good food and to grow in God. We have a variety of menus we cook on different months; from a traditional "full English" to scrambled eggs and kippers to a healthy continental style breakfast. Most months we have a guest speaker.
This breakfast takes place in several different locations, although mostly at the "Old Church Building". We also meet at Gaston Farm in Slindon over Easter, and on the Yapton Village Green during the Summer Holiday Club. What you can be sure of is there's time to share what God's been doing in our lives and be inspired by teaching or testimony.
We do not charge for the breakfast however voluntary donations are welcome towards the cost of the catering.
See the church diary for the next venue.
Most talks are recorded and can be listened to via The Yapton Mens Breakfast SoundCloud Page
