There are a number of different Christian churches in Hersham, but all have the same basic calling - to worship God, to share the good news about Jesus Christ and to work for the good of all people.
Church leaders from across Hersham meet together as part of the Ministers' Circle approximately three times each year. The ministers are supported by the Churches Together committee, which is comprised of lay members from each church.
The committee meets approximately once every two months and is responsible for organising various united events including prayer meetings, lunches, special services and social activities, as well as the distribution of the annual Christmas card to the village.
Next meeting: Monday 8 January 2017, 8pm.
Members of the committee are as follows. The roles of chair person and minute secretary are shared among the group and are rotated each meeting. Paul Hazeldine is the treasurer.
- Gerrald O'Driscoll (All Saints Roman Catholic Church)
- Sophy Cartledge (All Saints Roman Catholic Church)
- Heather Fellows (Hersham Baptist Church)
- Sue Hazeldine (Living Water Church)
- Matthew Evans (Living Water Church)
- Katherine Ind (St Peter's Church)
- Jonathan Atkinson (St Peter's Church)
Hersham Churches Together is part of the wider Churches Together groups for Surrey, England and Britain & Ireland.
- Churches Together in Surrey
Churches Together in Surrey covers the administrative county of Surrey excluding the Borough of Spelthorne (which lies north of the Thames and which belongs to West London Churchlink) but including those parts of Hampshire which are in the Anglican Diocese of Guildford.
- Churches Together in England
Churches Together in England is a visible sign of the Churches' commitment as they seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service. Its strength comes from people from different traditions finding new ways to work and worship together.
- Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
Supported and facilitated by a skilled and committed staff team, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland networks specialists across the churches, arranges regular meetings of church representatives and links the churches to a wide range of inter-church organisations. As the successor to the former Council of Churches for Britain and Ireland, and before that the British Council of Churches, it has a long history.
