Titchfield Evangelical Church


The Church
 
A church building has existed on this site in Titchfield for over 200 years.  A generation ago it was known as Titchfield Congregational Church and included a very large plot of land which where the homes in Chapelside now stand.  Some years ago now it was renamed Titchfield Evangelical Church and is linked, for fellowship, with FIEC (the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches).  











Here's a picture of the church and one view of the
Village Square from outside the building.




The age of the basic building means that there remains today aspects of its architecture which are very old, but church members made a grand effort back in the 1970s to modernise much of its interior. Over the last 5 years a great deal of additional effort and funds have gone into maintenance and improvements. This includes:

Rewiring/renewing lighting of both the front and main hall;
- Creating a toilet for the disabled;
- Relaying the flat roof section and some gabled roofs;
- Replacing some windows with UPVC and treating others;
- Internal decorations; 
- Creating a new church office (see photo opposite)
- Projects to update and improve sound and vision equipment,and decorate the front exterior are ongoing.
 



From the foyer you can take the stairs to our church lounge where we enjoy coffee and chat after Sunday
morning services. The room is used at other times for 
a mix of meetings and activities.  
It overlooks the main hall (sometimes called the 
Sanctuary) through windows and, since sound from
the services is relayed there, it is sometimes used
as a crèche.



The main hall is light and spacious with a fairly high ceiling and window lights. The acoustics are very good and this makes for  great singing! 

Around about 70 people can be comfortably seated but increased  to 100 if needed.  We currently have 50 modern and comfortable chairs with plenty of stackable plastic chairs as back up.



O ut of the rear of the main hall is where our church
vestry/new church office is situated - it's not at all a 
bad place also for a small group of people to join
together for coffee and chat!  Here, Clive is
pretending  to be busy at work - the church/ church
office is always open Tuesday mornings and at other 
times  during the week - if you'd like to meet Clive 
especially, p lease ring the office on 
01329 845772.

Who we are

Beyond the office and up some old stairs are various rooms spread over two floors.  These have been used in the past for Sunday School groups, a minister's study and even an occupied flat. So, we do have fairly expansive facilities and our aim is to grow the congregation - young and older - and build a strong and vibrant church with an increasing influence in our community.
