The church is transformed Every Friday morning, when the toddlers from 0 to 3 year olds come round to meet and have fun with each other under the watchful eyes of their parents/guardians and our support volunteers.
Toys, games, fun and lots of little feet rule the roost here, but parents/guardians are also allowed to catch up over tea and coffee once the toddlers sign their permission slips!
his playgroup is open to every accompanied toddler in the Epsom & Ewell community. It is always a beehive of activities and fun. Spaces do fill up quickly, so arrive early to book your place.
Tea and Chat is a church-based outreach for both Christian and non-Christian adults. We meet fortnightly on Tuesday afternoons during term times.
It is a caring, relaxed, informal atmosphere where people can meet up and have a chat over a sandwich, cake, and a cup of tea or coffee. Musical activities, poems, quizzes and presentations are often part of the afternoon enjoyment.
It is a warm and friendly gathering of about 25 folks where the regulars are eager to meet and welcome new people. Over the past 20 years, lasting friendships have been formed and for some, faith has blossomed. We have seen some come to faith in Jesus, and some others have come to value prayers.
What better way of building relationships than eating and drinking together? Once a month King’s Church members and children bake hundreds of cakes to give away along with tea and coffee. Since 2014 (on the third Saturday of the month, 10am to 12pm) we have been based by the METRO Bank in Epsom town centre freely sharing the love of Jesus with our community. People of all ages and local traders really appreciate the friendly atmosphere this brings to the town.
The meeting Room is a social rehabilitation initiative ran by a local organisation; it is hosted and supported by the King’s church. Below are the objectives and operations of the initiative as explained by the organizers:
The Meeting Room runs daytime drop in centres for homeless, socially isolated, and vulnerable people living within our community. We offer them a warm, safe and friendly environment where they are made to feel welcome and have a chance to eat, relax and socialise. A hot nourishing mid-day meal sustains the body, while talking, playing games and other activities help to break through isolation. By listening to our clients and gaining their trust, we help them by signposting them to agencies or professional bodies for help or provide further assistance ourselves through our regular volunteers. We also have a qualified Counsellor who can offer support to those in the greatest need as well as regular workshops to help develop confidence and self esteem. Results don’t always happen overnight, or sometimes at all, but our goal is to continue being there to offer support and friendship. The Meeting Room has been meeting at Kings Church every Thursday for the past two years with volunteers and support being offered from members of the Kings Church congregation.
