Welcome to Copse Road Chapel
Who are we?
We are an Evangelical church who has been in existence for 170 years.
What do we believe?
We believe the Bible is the word of God and seek to live our lives by its teachings. We believe that God in His great love sent His Son the Lord Jesus into the world to save us from our sins. We believe that the Lord Jesus died on the cross of Calvary and rose again from the dead to save His people from their sin. This means that all who trust in Him for their salvation are forgiven all their sins and have eternal life through His name.
What do we do in our meetings?
Our services are very simple. We bring our prayers and worship to God in a time of singing, and then we hear preaching and teaching from the Bible. Our services typically last about an hour and a quarter. We frequently have people in our meetings who are not Christians. We welcome them warmly and trust and pray that God will speak to them through the Bible. We are known for our friendliness and warm welcome. Why not come one Sunday and see for yourself? We preach that Jesus Christ came here to earth to show us the love of God. We preach that He died to deliver us from the penalty of sin and the power of sin. We preach that by His death He saves all who come to Him from the penalty of sin and brings them into the kingdom of God and makes them the children of God.This is why Christ is at the centre of our faith. It is because He is the Saviour whom God sent into the world to save us from our sins. He is the Saviour who cleanses us from our sin and brings us into fellowship with God. All who come to God through faith in Christ are received as the beloved children of God.
We invite you warmly to join us one Sunday
Perhaps you do not usually attend church and perhaps you think that there is nothing there for you. The truth, however, is that we preach a message that you need to hear. You need to hear what the Bible teaches about Christ so that you may be saved from your sins.
As you read these words you have many other questions that you would like to ask. If so we would be delighted to meet with you and speak to you from the Bible. You would be most welcome to come to one of our services. Alternatively, if you would like someone to come and visit you then please contact us. We would be delighted to come and see you and speak to you more on these matters.
All are welcome.
