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 congregation is now meeting regularly again for Sunday services at 10.30 at the church on the Blounts Court Road, and, as ever, everyone is welcome. Services are live-streamed for those people who cannot turn up physically to services and can be accessed via our website.
