We are really glad you’ve found us and we’d love to get to know you and welcome you into our community.  We are quite a big church but there are lots of ways to meet people and get connected both on a Sunday and during the week.  Why not try one of the following?

Sunday Services

You are welcome to join us at any of our Sunday services. Find out more about Sunday Services or check out our FAQs, and come along!

Small Groups

Small Groups are probably the best way to build relationships and begin to feel that you belong at Upton Vale. Various groups meet during the week in local homes. They are usually made up of about 8-12 people and most meet to study the Bible together, pray and worship, and get to know each other and support each other in daily life.  There are groups that meet weekly and others that meet fortnightly and there are also some age-specific groups (eg 18-30s).  You are welcome to try two or three different groups and then decide which one feels right for you.

Newcomers Events

Every couple of months we host an event specifically for people who are new to the church. This is usually coffee and cakes during the second half of the morning service and anyone is welcome.  Some of our leaders and staff are there to tell you a little bit about the church and suggest some ways to get involved.  If you would like to come along please contact the Church Office to find out the next date.  Either telephone 01803 400403 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Alpha Course

Have you ever had a nagging thought that sometime it would be good to find out what Christianity is all about? Maybe you've grown up going to Sunday School and you're curious about what a faith can be as an adult? Or maybe you've never heard about Christianity, Jesus and the Bible but you're intrigued.  If you'd like more information please click here.

Belonging Course

If you are interested in becoming a church member, we run a short course that tells you a bit more about our church and what it means to be a member. There is no pressure to become a member after the course.
