The Community Church

Our goal is that every person knows who they are in Christ, feels part of the family, using the gifts that God has given them to fulfil their work in the Kingdom of God.

The Community Church (One of the Basingstoke Community Churches)

We as the Community Church (One of the Basingstoke Community Churches) believe we are a church in the community for the community. Most Sundays we gather at St. Luke’s Halll on Winchester St (RG25 3HT) in Overton at 10am for coffee followed by the worship service at 10:30. There is singing, reading the Bible, listening to a talk and building relationship together along with children’s work at every gathering.

While that is our base on Sundays we then attempt to live out our faith wherever we live and work whether that be Overton, Oakley, Whitchurch, Kempshott, Steventon, Ashe, Winklebury and points in between. We aim to be the community church in… wherever that may be not just where we gather on a Sunday.

We have midweek gatherings for adults in Oakley, Overton and Whitchurch along with a youth club called CafeTeen and a youth cell in Overton on Friday nights. We also do a family club called Saturday Club, there are parties for families throughout the year and we have an outreach to older folk in Oakley called Second Sunday.

If you are new the village of Overton do check us out we would love to meet you and have you plugged into the church family. The leader of the church Earl Robinson can be contacted on 212788.
