Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where is the church?
We are located on Woodbridge Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 4QD. Visit our Find Us page for more details.
Where do I park?
There is plenty of parking nearby, including several multi-storey car parks, and parking spaces on the streets around the church.
Where do I go?
Come to the main church building and enter through the main doors . When you come to the church the first people you will meet as you enter the building will be our Host Team. They will be wearing St Saviours badges so they are really easily identifiable. They will be able to answer any immediate questions you have and also be able to show you where you can get a drink.
How do I find out about the church?
The Host Team will be able to answer any questions you have. If you have children, they will be able to introduce you one of our Kids/Youth team who can explain about our kids and youth programmes and guide you through the process of how you check your children in. If you turn up late don’t panic! After every 10.30am and 6pm services we have “ten minute parties” for those who are new in order to answer your questions and point you in the right direction. 
Welcome Course
Perhaps the best way of you finding your feet will be to come along to our new welcome course. This is perfect for anyone who is new or yet to feel connected in the church. This is going to take place during the 10.30am and 6pm service. All the information that you need will be given out in the service.
Is there something for my kids?
We are passionate about helping young people learn about Jesus in a safe and fun environment.

All volunteers working with children have a current DBS (formerly CRB) certificate and we adhere to the Diocesan Child Protection Policy, ‘In Safe Hands’.

What are the services like?

Our services all take place at the church within a pretty easy going environment. We sing a variety of worship songs, pray, listen to a talk based on the bible and seek to be led by the Holy Spirit. Our 9am and 10.30am are pitched differently. The first is more liturgical and reflective and the second is contemporary, informal and has children’s provision for 0-11yrs. The 6pm service is informal in style, enjoying longer times of contemporary band-led worship, biblical teaching and prayer ministry, with provision for 7-14yrs.

We also try to make our services as accessible as possible and make provision for those who are deaf, or hard of hearing or partially sighted. For the deaf or hard of hearing we operate two Sunday per month with BSL support. This takes place at the 10.30am service on the 1st & 4th Sundays of each month. Additional BSL support and interpretation is organised on an ad-hoc basis and for special services and events.

Let us know if we can help in any other way
Do feel free to give us a call on 01483 455333, email office@st-saviours.org.uk or ask one of our host team on a Sunday.
How do I get involved?
We would love you to get involved. We would recommend that you come and do the Welcome Course. This will give you the opportunity to meet some of the team and find out about the church. Depending on your journey so far, we recommend you do Alpha or join a POD (church small groups).  However, there are many other ways enable you to start developing friendships with people at the church and growing in your faith such as helping us run some of the amazing activities within the church. We will ask you about this when you fill in our welcome form and then the relevant team member who oversees the activity you are interested in will contact you.
