If you are a student in Southampton then we offer a free bus service to the Hedge End site on a Sunday morning. Pick up points are from Montefiore Halls at 09:15, Glen Eyre at 09:25 and Highfield House Hotel at 09:35. If you are at Solent University we pick up at East Park Terrace at 09:35. As well as being involved in the 18-30's socials, connect groups and wider church life, we also meet together in Highfield for our monthly S20 events.
On Sundays we gather across both sites for the Sunday meeting. Afterwards we usually get together for lunch or head out for a walk. During the week we have a number of 18/30's focused connect groups to be involved in. These are key moments to pray and worship together. Throughout the month there are lots of organised and spontaneous opportunities to hangout. As 18/30's we have the opportunity to receive training from high calibre Bible teachers and serve on international mission trips.
At KCC we run termly connect groups to help you connect with others in the church. These usually take place in somebody’s home during the week and are focused on a certain location or specific topic/activity. Throughout the year there are also other events for women, men, families and our app contains details of these.
On Sundays we provide transport to and from the meeting. Once a month we hold Songs of Praise, a Sunday afternoon meeting for those who enjoy traditional hymns, tea and cake. During the week we have our HALO lunch club, providing great entertainment every other Tuesday. For our retired men the Shed runs every Wednesday. This is a fantastic opportunity to play pool or table tennis, go on trips out and to meet new people. On alternate Tuesdays our GEMS group meets. GEMS is a dementia friendly group that provides activities to stimulate the brain, and of course have a lot of fun too.
