The Church is affiliated to the Congregational Federation and welcomes families from Peppard and the surrounding area. It is located in Blounts Court Road, Peppard, RG9 5EU
The Church was founded in 1795 under the name of Providence Chapel, which later became Peppard Congregational Church.
It has recently been renamed Springwater, reflecting the old spring and well down in Spring Wood, with the inscription: ‘Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst’. John 4 v 13-14.
Our Sunday worship meeting takes place at 10:30am and Sunday School is from 10.30 to 11.30. The format is relaxed in style with a mixture of music, readings and a message from one of our regular or guest speakers. Visitors are very welcome and can be assured of a safe and friendly environment. The meeting normally lasts around 75 minutes and is followed by tea and coffee. We regularly have an informal “café style” service which is a great opportunity to chat and get to know each other in small groups round a table to discuss the topic of the morning over tea/coffee and food. The children and young people are part of the morning gathering.

The church building and grounds will be open but there will be no programmed church gathering. For those that do visit the church for personal prayer and reflection, we will follow the relevant social distancing guidelines, that require a max of 10 people in the building and non-family groups to stay at least 2m (6ft) apart and for everyone to wash or sanitize hands when entering and leaving the building.
Springwater events include:
Springwater is having a busy season as an Alpha course is running alongside our usual weekly activities: Sunday’s gatherings at 10.30; Monday’s Compassionate Loaf baking workshops at 10.00; Tuesday’s women’s group at 10.00; and Wednesday’s parent and toddler group, The Ark at 10.00 As well as the usual weekly gatherings, our men enjoy a night out at the Catherine Wheel on the last Thursday of each month for a pint and a curry. These are our regular happenings; but there are a host of other exciting things going on such as an emerging forum for singers and songwriters beginning with a launch of Robert Brain’s first album on November 22nd at Zizzi’s in Henley. It’s a fun season!
