About us

Headley Down Community Church is a non-denominational church for the people of Headley Down and the surrounding area. Everyone is welcome on a Sunday morning when we can spend time worshipping together and discovering how our faith is relevant in our day to day lives. We are a friendly group of people welcoming of residents and visitors alike and enjoying fellowship with one another and sharing our faith.

  • We believe in God the Father who loved us so much that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to die for each one of us on the cross and rose again from the dead now reigning in heaven and will return in power and glory.

  • We believe only Jesus Christ offers eternal salvation to all who put their faith in Him

  • We believe Jesus Christ sent His Holy Spirit to encourage us, guide us and dwell in each of us.

  • We believe that The Holy Spirit is still active today in the church and the world through the gifts of the Spirit.

  • We believe in baptism for the forgiveness of sin 

  • We believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God written by men but inspired by God and is there to teach, instruct and guide us in our everyday lives.

  • We celebrate the unity of Bible-believing Christians who recognise the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, holding Christ on the inside and showing His love for all in the community in everything that we do.


Children are very welcome, and toys and books are available at all times. Junior church is provided at every service apart from the Big Brunch, which is a service for all ages when families and friends can enjoy the time together. The spiritual leadership of the church is led by our Pastor John Russell and supported by a Leadership Team - Cathie Russell and Julian Gilbertson. The team is advised by Rev. Elizabeth Knifton.


We invite you to visit and to ‘come and see’ and we look forward to meeting you in person!

A loop system is installed for the hearing impaired.
