The Welcome Church building is found at the corner of Church Street West and Oaks Road in Woking (next door to the now infamous ‘Woking Pizza Express’!). There is a small car park in Oaks Road that is reserved for people with disabilities or illnesses that mean they can not walk far.
There is an entrance from the car park into the Chapel. The main entrance is on the other side of the building. At both entrances you should find someone from our Welcome Team to help you.

"But this is all I have, it's nothing amazing at all, how can anyone use this, how can anyone use me?!" Sound familiar?....This Sunday we hear more of the life we have through Jesus.'

How do you approach Jesus with faith, or cynicism? With demands, or worship? With arrogance, or humility? Do you believe God owes you, or do you know you need a saviour? Are you casual, or do you desire to experience more of him and to know more of the Holy Spirit? is it just words on the page, or is your heart response like the Samaritan woman...

The Gospel Of John | A Matter of Life and Death Pt.4
‘Right, look,’ they say to Jesus, ‘this is not on. What right do you have to come in here and throw your weight around? This is our temple, not yours. It’s nothing to do with you. Get out of our temple!’ And people have been saying the same thing ever since: this God thing would be so much easier if we didn’t have God sticking his nose in....
The Gospel Of John | A Matter of Life and Death Pt.3
In the Bible we see that Mary has amazing faith in God, and it comes out in her approach to Jesus. When Mary discovered a problem her response was to bring it to Jesus so he can help... What is our response to Jesus and what is his heartbeat for us?

It’s about the life of Jesus, it’s about the death of Jesus on a Cross, and it’s about the resurrection of Jesus to new, everlasting life. It’s a story about Jesus. It is a matter of life and death.
Fear Transformed Through Jesus
Fear is something that can be evident in our lives and affects us daily or it can be something that we have learnt to manage, using strategies to hide them, to not have to deal with them. Jesus’ disciples were full of fear, but how was this fear transformed through Jesus?....
Self-Worth Transformed Through Jesus
"I'm the strong one, I'm not nervous I'm as tough as the crust of the Earth is I move mountains, I move churches And I glow, 'cause I know what my worth is I don't ask how hard the work is .....

Death Transformed Through Jesus
Jesus promised us a resurrection, his work is finished and death is defeated, so what does it mean for a Christian to die with confidence? Baptism Sunday from both our 9.00am and 11.00am meetings
Faith Transformed Through Jesus
Someone once defined faith as believing something when you’re not sure if it’s true. The greatest faith of all is believing something when you’re absolutely certain there is no way it could possibly be true! That’s not faith....
Relationships Transformed Through Jesus
So much of the joy we experience flows out of healthy relationships and yet so much of the pain we experience flows out of unhealthy relationships we experience as well, so what does Jesus offer us through this pain?

Even Through Joseph

Even Through An Ethiopian Eunuch

"Who me?! Listen, I'm not that person...I'm not doing great...I don't read the bible...I can't even pray sometimes...I'm a bad Christian, ultimately, I just don't love God like I know I should." Our hearts often believe the lie that we need to prove our worth to God, Yet God has shown us time and again that it's his steadfast love, his patience, his mercy, and his compassion that is the decisive force of redemption. Part one of our new series "Even Through You" (00:45:27).
How the mighty have fallen.
Many of us have been deeply saddened this week by the news that Queen Elizabeth II has died. We mourn with those who mourn; we feel it together as a nation. This week, we reflect on The Queen's servant life in Christ, and the example she led of having a hope that goes beyond the grave. (00:46:44).
