If you are new to the church then we give you a very warm welcome. We hope to see you at one of Sunday services or our other events. We have regular new visitors’ lunches, which you are very welcome to attend.
I live in Plymouth and need a lift to the church for a service, can you help?
What are the services like?
Our Sunday services start at 10.30am with Search the Scriptures (10.30am to 11.00am), followed by a Thanksgiving Service (11.00am to 1.00pm).
We praise and worship together with our children before they move to their room for their own service (11.30am to 12.10pm) and then come back again to hear God’s Word and regularly with a time slot for prayer together.
We serve tea / coffee and some snacks after our Sunday services, to help you get to know others; and same available on request during our other weekly and monthly services.
Do I need to dress smart?
Not at all. Some people like to dress up for church and others wear neat and simple dress, which could as well be your local or indigenous attires, it’s up to you.
Where is the Church and is there parking?
We are just a 4 minute walk from Mutley Plain, 5 minutes from Plymouth University, 7 minutes walk from North Road East and an 8 minute walk from Plymouth Train Station. Buses 40 and 41 pass through North Road East.
Every Sunday, there is free parking at the front side of the Church building (but not the opposite side where there is a pay and display ticket machine.) There is also three hour free parking on the street next to the Church at the front of the Old Eye Infirmary Hospital – please be aware that they are very strict on timings and you will be fined if you are late.
There is free parking in all the streets around the Church building from Monday to Saturday after 5.00pm.
What is there for Children?
On Sunday mornings we have a Children’s service for children aged toddler to 12 years (11.30am to 12.10pm). They have a lot of fun playing, singing and learning about God and faith in creative ways. Children group starts off in the main Church and a message will appear when they leave for their group (usually after a few songs).
If I decide to make The Overcomers Christian Fellowship International my home church, how do I get more involved?
The Pastorate and Evangelism team visit every new member the week of attending the Church service or when it is convenient to the new visitor.
We plan to run New visitors’ lunches three times a year which we encourage all new people to attend so that you can meet us, and vice versa. This will usually be announced in the Church during our services or on the notice board / our website. Invitation would also be sent to such individuals.
We also encourage signing up to our Membership Class. It takes place over one Sunday afternoon, which includes lunch. You get to meet the church leaders, hear about the vision and values of the church, and discover what it means to become a member of the church. You may also want to join a group in the Church or start volunteering in some way while you undergo worker’s training.
If you are looking for where to fellowship or yearning to know more about God, why not join us on any of our weekly activities.
