Chard Guildhall

Welcome to Forefront Community Church

People just like you attend our church. You're welcome to join us too!

We are cautiously returning to physical meetings, after 16 months of weekly, live, virtual meetings. Our initial pattern (to be reviewed end-September) is to have three smaller, "area" groups, with monthly all-church celebrations. Readings and speakers' remarks remain available online for those who are isolating, or unable to attend meetings for other reasons.

See Flourishing despite Covid-19 for how to join our online community, and how to access Forefront Centre services.

We are a group of followers of Jesus Christ who aim to seek God, love generously & expect transformation. From all ages and diverse backgrounds, we aim to be a community within our community.

We meet to worship God on Sundays, but stay active and engaged throughout the week.

There's lots to get involved in, whether it’s our Life Groups in people’s homes, or the many activities we run from the Forefront Community Centre.

We look forward to meeting you, whether you're local, just moved into the area, a seasoned church-goer or just curious.

What we do throughout the week


You're welcome to join us at our main service in Chard Guildhall @ 10.30. We also have evening meetings and social events at other times
