Journey Church is a Church of the Nazarene – a community of Christians following Jesus Christ. We aim to preach, teach, study and most of all live the good news about Jesus Christ in a lively and loving atmosphere. We welcome new members and visitors so come and join us. We offer a wide variety of activities and ministries for children, youth, young adults, adults and seniors.
We are Welcoming
You’ll find that we are an easy church to visit. You’ll be welcomed but not overwhelmed. People here will talk with you but not at you. Our facilities may not be what you typically think of when you visit a church. We don’t have a grand building or stained glass windows and an organ. Instead we have a clean, bright, light functional space. This is because for us, people are so much more important than buildings. To us, it’s the people that are the church, not the building. We are intentional about creating community – not just talking about it.
Sunday mornings we have our worship services. During the week there are small groups of 8 to 15 people who meet together in people’s homes around Londonderry, Derry, Litchfield and Hudson. These ‘life groups’ are a great place to make friends and get known when you are ready for that.
We dress casually, serve decent coffee, start and end our worship services on time, preach relevant practical sermons and join together in good contemporary music. Here are some more things you might want to know about us:
Children are very important to us. So many of us are young families with children. So we provide first class staff providing a rich worship and learning experience for children of all ages in clean, safe bright space, with age-appropriate materials. We use state-of the art security and paging systems so you can relax, knowing that your children are in good hands. Some parents prefer their children worship with them in the main service – and that is just fine with us too. You choose.
Each year our little church has new babies to celebrate! So Moms and babies get their own nursery space, right in the next room to the worship service. Our Nursery is staffed by church adults and as you’d expect is clean and bright.
We are all about Jesus
We teach and live our lives, individually and together, driven by the life and teachings of Jesus. We believe Jesus is God, and that Jesus is alive, and that each of us can know God and live with Him at the center of our lives. Our faith is an educated, intelligent, open minded life that embraces everything good in God’s world. We encourage participation in our community, and understand that everyone is at a different place in their journey towards God.
We never judge anyone, but create a positive culture by encouraging everyone to grow in their journey. We have found that as we seek God, He joins us, and as we learn from Him we grow to be more and more like Jesus.
We can’t imagine a more fulfilling and exciting life. Jesus meets the deepest needs of every person – mind, soul and spirit. As Christians always have, we recognize the Bible as more than just a ‘good book’. It’s an amazing gold mine of truth about ourselves and God. As we read it, teach it and preach it, we find that God has been working in humankind all along, and is doing so today, and here.
We invite you on this journey with us.
