Denomination: Christian Brethren

The Gospel Halls (often referred to as ‘the assemblies’) are a collection of independent evangelical churches. They are ‘independent’ in the sense that their beliefs and practices are determined, not by an overarching organisation or body, but by the believers in each locality. Yet they are a ‘collection’ in the sense that they tend to hold certain distinctive beliefs in common.
philosophy…

All believers, I take it, want to know and live out God’s will in their lives. The guiding principle behind what I will call, for want of a better term, ‘assembly-thinking’ is that the easiest and most reliable way to do this is to stick to the pattern given by the New Testament. Hardly, one would hope, a controversial principle. However, in practice, this is easier said than done. After all, it is not necessarily God’s will that all believers move to Eastern Europe in order to more closely follow Paul’s example, or greet each other with ‘holy kisses’ (whatever such things may be), or wash each others’ feet. So, we need to apply some common sense when working out when writers intended their instructions to be implemented only by a specific group of believers and when they intended their instructions to become normative for all Christians.

By and large, people who go to gospel halls tend to see less of the Bible as ‘cultural’ than do other churches. This is not due to any great desire to be different or awkward but simply because there is good reason to think that, in many cases, when the apostles tell a certain church to do something, they expect all the other churches to follow suit (see, for instance, 1 Timothy 3.14-15, 6.3-4; 1 Corinthians 11.16; 14.33, 36; 16.1; 1 Thessalonians 2:14). Moreover, when the apostles give reasons for their instructions, these reasons don’t seem to have much to do with the culture of the day (unlike, say, the instruction not to eat food sacrificed to idols—compare 1 Cor 8 & 10 and Acts 15).

In essence, then, Collier Row Gospel Hall is, like many others, a free-standing indepedent evangelical church. But then you can only explain so much on a website, so why not come and visit in person?

Each Sunday morning, the Sunday School meet for a time of Bible-teaching, arts & crafts, team quizzes, and singing. The children love coming, the leaders love running it, and children of all ages and backgrounds are welcome.

At the same time we hold a bible class. All are welcome to attend the bible class.
4:30pm, Afternoon Service
In the afternoon, we meet together for a short talk from the Bible and a cup of tea or coffee to follow. We also try to cater for the children who come. We’d love to have you join us. The meeting lasts about 45 minutes.

Tuesday

8:00pm, Bible Study and Prayer
On a Tuesday evening, we spend time in the study of God’s Word and prayer. When we pray, we simply talk to our Father in Heaven—something Jesus himself encouraged us to do. So, please don’t feel embarrassed to join us.

Also

On the first Sunday
of each month, we hold a short service in The Lodge Retirement Home (in Lodge Lane). We also hold various other annual events like the Riverbank Bible Club (during the spring half-term), our Bible Conference (normally on the May Bank Holiday), our Carol service, and various social outings.
