Marchwood Gospel Church

A Little About LEAF Member: The Gospel Church Marchwood

We try to be a church with a big welcome, reaching out with the good news of Jesus Christ into our village community, the surrounding area and even the wider world!  The aims of the church are captured in our simple motto which is:

'Knowing Jesus Better – Making Jesus Better Known'

which we adopted following our 70th church anniversary year in 2011. Looking back from when the church building initially reopened during World War II to serve soldiers camping in the village preparing for the D Day invasion with a warm place to write a letter home and refreshments, the heart of the church down these years has been to glorify God through our worship, Bible teaching and service to our growing community with its changing needs.

Everyone is welcome to attend any of our services and activities.
