WHAT TO EXPECT
At Hebron our main gathering together is each Sunday at 11 am until 12.15 pm. At this Family orientated service we are reminded of the good news of Jesus as we hear from God’s word. We are led in worship by our band, we pray, take Communion and we spend time getting to know each other over a cuppa. We feel the church should be like a family and that is often how visitors to our service and new people to our church describe us.
We believe it is important for the whole church to come together to be encouraged, to be reminded of God’s grace toward us and to be equipped and sent out on mission to reach our communities with the Gospel (the good news about Jesus Christ).
The whole family stay together for about half the time together then, if you have children, during the talk we have various age specific groups where your children can go and learn about Jesus through Bible stories and other activities.
We believe God doesn’t judge by our outside appearance, but instead looks at what is in our heart and our response to him so we don’t have an expectation that you should dress in a certain way. Our gatherings are full of regular people and you will receive a warm welcome when you arrive.
Our meetings are laid-back and friendly and we try not to assume that people have been to church before. We are just happy that you would come and spend time with us. You don’t have to sing or pray, please just do much as you feel comfortable with. The person leading the service will explain why and when we do certain things e.g. singing, prayer.
We would love you to stay for a cuppa and a biscuit (sometimes cake) after our service so we can get to know you.
Our Sunday service isn’t the only time we meet together. We love people to be a part of one of our Small Groups. These are groups that meet in various places on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and look at and discuss the passage from the Bible that was spoken about on the Sunday morning just gone.
who are we
WHAT WE BELIEVE
As a church we believe in:
- The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
- The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
- The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
- The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
- The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
- The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
- The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
- The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
- The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
- The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
As a church we have links with a number of organisations which we support,
or support us…sometimes both.
Some financially, some prayerfully and some practically. We feel that we are part of God’s work in Wallasey, but also want to support the work of others taking the Good News of Jesus in other areas of our region, country and right across the world.
