Join the community

There are a range of clubs, groups, and fellowships for adults of every generation at London Road.


Housegroups are an essential part of our fellowship and spiritual education at London Road. We have groups all over the town and groups of all ages that meet to study the Bible, explore further the ideas that came up in recent sermons, discuss a Christian response to current events, and share topical discussions. Groups also enjoy social events such as dinners, barbecues, quiz nights, theatre trips, and more. Housegroups are little families within the larger church family, caring for each other and serving the life of the church. Do get in touch to find out more about joining a housegroup near you; we can also help arrange transport. Dates and locations for each housegroup are published monthly in the church bulletin. Most groups meet monthly in the evenings. Standings housegroup especially caters for teenagers and meets at 7pm on the 2nd Friday of each month. For those who find evenings tricky, Fairview housegroup meets at 10:15am on the 2nd Friday of each month. For more information as well as dates and locations, contact Rev. Gavin Hancocks at

Saturday Morning Prayers & Breakfast

The prayer group meets every Saturday at 8:30am for prayer; breakfast is served at 9:15. On the first Sunday of the month we meet at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in Roffey. All other Saturdays we meet at London Road. We pray for the family of the church, our ministers and other leaders. We remember the wider church in our town, circuit, and country. We remember Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering for their faith in other parts of the world. If anyone would like us to make intercession on their behalf we will do so. We are discreet and only say names with your permission. All are welcome to join us! For more information, contact Jay Dunning at

Bible Study

Our minister Gavin leads a Bible study at 10:00 am on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. Together we explore books of the Bible or the lives of key Biblical characters over the course of several weeks and months. If you’d like to read and discuss the Bible with others, do join us!

Pastoral Care

We care about our members and all who visit our church! Everyone in our church is assigned to a pastoral visitor who looks out for their wellbeing. If you would like to belong to a pastoral group, or if you’re not sure who your pastoral visitor is, get in touch with us. We also have a dedicated team of “Emmaus Companions” who can journey with you as you explore Christianity and our church. Our minister, Gavin, is happy to visit those who cannot get to church and to bring communion to you at home.
