Our church isn’t built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the willing hearts and hands of many who serve and give their time, talent and passion to make who we are and all we do possible. Jesus said that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive and that those who are greatest among us are those who serve. We believe that we were born to serve God and others! There are many different ways and areas in which you can serve in the life of our Church.
When you come into Harefield Church on a Sunday morning there is always a warm welcome from a team of people.
Handing out leaflets and just saying ‘Hello’ can make all the difference to somebody coming into Harefield for the first time or returning to church.
Worship and Music
Worship is the natural outpouring from believers to express their love for the Lord. Worship can include songs, prayer, mediation, testimony, poetry, drama and should encompass all ages. Worship is an important and integral part of our meetings.
Our worship is live and is led by our worship leaders, musicians and singers. Our band currently includes pianists, keyboards, guitarists, woodwind, cajon and more.
Sometimes you wonder where we would be without a cup of tea or coffee at church.
When you arrive on a Sunday morning you are welcomed with the offer of a drink and biscuit. A chance to chat and catch up before the meeting starts. A team are there every week to ensure the hot water is on, spoons and cups at the ready.
Tech and Media
PA & Audio Visual Team
A mass of wires, computers, cameras, microphones, speakers, may seem complex but without it you may not hear what’s going on. At meetings the songs are projected onto the screen, videos appear and more and these guys help make the meetings flow seamlessly.
If you have visited the Harefield’s website you will see it is always up to date with the latest news.
A healthy Christian community is one in which people know that they are loved, visitors are welcome and young and old alike are valued and feel safe.
The care that we offer, both at times of crisis and in everyday life is an active declaration of God’s love to us. Each of us has opportunities to care for one another. Pray and care for others as you would want them to care for you.
Buildings and Fabric
We are blessed at Harefield Church with great facilities. The building enables us to do so much for God and our community. Over the years we have tried to reduce the levels of maintenance but for a building which is used a minimum of 5 days a week, jobs come up. Whether it’s repairing a tap, painting a wall or pruning a bush, many hands make light work.
We are looking for individuals prepared to give some time as and when required for specific maintenance jobs or one-off projects. We also have all the regular tasks for Sunday mornings where you can connect, working with others.
Help us introduce children of all ages to God’s love. Many serve in our youth work.
In our Harefield Kids and YC groups we have main leaders, leaders and helpers.
Have a chat with some of them to find out what they do.
God’s mission is to create a people that worships, disciples and witnesses. We understand that part of God’s mission is that we witness for Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8) both locally, nationally and internationally. The purpose of this witness is to make disciples of all nations, baptising them and teaching them to obey everything that Christ has commanded (Matthew 28:19-20).
As a church, Harefield is involved in local, national and international mission – that is, we seek to be Christ’s witnesses and make disciples.
