Sunday Meeting

As a Church we are committed to finding ways of engaging all ages in Christian worship, prayer and teaching. All our Sunday meetings start at 10.30am at the Leah Manning Centre.

Regular Sunday Worship

On Sunday mornings we meet together for a time of worship, prayer and teaching.  Afterwards, there is an opportunity to receive prayer and a time to develop friendships while enjoying light refreshments.

Our worship style is informal and does not follow set liturgy.

Messy Church

For various circumstances we aren't able to hold Messy Church so we invite you to click on this link so that you can find out about Messy Church taking places in other churches across Harlow.

Messy Church is a fun, interactive way of people of all ages learning more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

If you would like to know more about Freshwaters Messy Church activities in the past, please email us:

Children's Work on Sundays.

Services in Residential Homes

Each month a team of us takes a short Gospel service in Tye Green Lodge or Ashlyn’s (their dementia unit).  We keep it light and varied, with hymns (usually old favourites which the residents know and enjoy singing), puppets, poems and often a drama or sketch on a Biblical theme, followed by a simple message.  We also share personal testimonies describing how Jesus has changed our lives.

The residents are happy to chat and sometimes be prayed for after the service.  The Lord has blessed this outreach and it gives us great joy to be part of it.  We welcome anyone who shares our vision to honour the elderly to join in this rewarding ministry.
