MINISTRIES & ACTIVITIES
We are engaged in meetings, groups, events and activites that develop and share our faith
GATHERING FOR WORSHIP - SUNDAYS
In Hadleigh, we meet every Sunday to worship God and encourage each other in our faith - see Sunday Services. In Monks Eleigh, there is usually a gathering every fourth Sunday at 3pm in the Manse next to the chapel.
PAUSE FOR PRAYER - TUESDAYS 10:15AM
From 10am every Tuesday morning the Church is open as a quiet space to pray or reflect. From 10:15 to 10:30 there is a short time of led prayer - for the needs of individuals, the community and the world.
COFFEE & CHAT - TUESDAYS FROM 10AM
In parallel to Pause for Prayer, the Community Room is open from 10:00–11:30am, serving tea, coffee and biscuits. Call in and have a chat - a friendly welcome awaits!
THE ARK - FRIDAYS AT 9:30AM (AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH)
A Group for Babies and Toddlers with their parents or carers - crafts, puzzles, toys, snacks, songs and stories - and fresh cake and coffee for the grown-ups! Every Friday in school termtime 9:30-11:30am. Run in collaboration with Hadleigh Baptist Church at the Baptist Church on George Street.
SMALL GROUPS - MONTHLY
Once every month a number of small groups meet:
Vision4Life provides a good chance to further your knowledge of the Christian faith. Usually the first Thursday of each month at 7:30am.
Any Questions? is a space to openly discuss and honestly grapple with all kinds of questions relating to life, faith and religion. Usually the first Monday of each month at 2pm.
The Lunchtime Study Group explores a passage from the Bible over a packed lunch. Usually the first Wednesday of each month at 12:15pm.
Periodically, we run courses for those who are interested in finding out more about the Christian faith - like Alpha and Christianty Explored. Check the homepage for latest dates.
WORKING WITH OTHER CHURCHES
Hadleigh URC is an active member of Churches Together in Hadleigh. We frequently take part in joint services, events and outreach.
SUPPORTING FIND & THE ACC
Hadleigh URC collects items for Families In Need (FIND), the local foodbank run in Ipswich. We also act as a referral centre and work with the other churches in Hadleigh to ensure that those who need a food parcel can receive one.
Many of our Church Members are involved in the Ansell Centre Charity - some as trustees and others as volunteers and helpers. The ACC uses the Ansell Centre to provide a range of services to the community - Lunch Clubs and Digital Cinema twice a month and Memories Cafe every Thursday (from 11am).
