Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Crown Family Church a great one!
We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30am at The Upper Room which is located in BTS House, at the bottom of Wallington High Street. We have free parking at the rear of the building off Clifton Road which is opposite the Shell Garage - SM6 0DD. Once per month we join with other churches for an inter-denominational church service called The Gathering. On these Saturdays we meet at the Epsom Downs Racecourse at 7pm. Check out the events calendar to make sure you come to the right place.

What can I expect?
How long is the CHURCH service & What FORMAT ARE THE MEETINGS?
In total, our services run for about 90 minutes in length. Services begin with tea, coffee and pastries which are served in the Upper Room when you arrive. People arrive early from 10:00pm to grab a coffee and pastries and to chat with friends.
The service starts on time with our band leading the church in sung worship - song lyrics are projected onto the overhead screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. Some people like to reflect in quiet prayer, whereas others may raise their hands or clap. Children are encouraged to join with us as part of our family.
During the worship we receive an offering for the work of the church's ministry. All of our leaders and team members are volunteers. This means we don't have any paid ministry staff so every penny given goes towards paying for our costs and our mission - helping our community! Visitors are under no obligation to give whatsoever, this is just something our members do as part of our worship.
After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus. During this time we have a dedicated room for children and young people. We ask parents to supervise their children but we do provide a range of age appropriate activities. Parents can also hear the sermon through a relay system in the room. There is always time for prayer ministry and response at the end of our service. We allow space for the Holy Spirit to move freely amongst us. This means our services can change in structure and our members often come ready with something to contribute.
What's the culture like at Crown Family Church?
Sundays at Crown Family Church are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guests. Everything we do is about encountering Christ and sharing God's love with our community. We believe that just one touch in the presence of God can transform a person for the rest of their life!
What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Crown Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kids room, the first time that you visit. Look out for one of our Kids Team or speak to one of the hosting team! You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Crown Kids experience. Crown Kids is offered at every service for kids ages infant through 12 (except for at The Gathering meetings at the Epsom Racecourse).
