We’re pleased to announce that Abbie Brister has joined the Leadership Team, and we have revised the map of who is primarily responsible for what on our six-strong leadership team. But what does leadership mean in Forefront? In common with many churches whose origins are in the non-conformist tradition, we understand church leadership to be […]
We have had some amazing answers to prayer recently. Give thanks! Ben and Emma have received support and promises equivalent to 80% of the funds they need to support their work in Cairo. Likewise, Anisa has most of the funds necessary for her 9 months in Colombia … only the visa to go, now. The […]
From the start of the year, Vision Sunday, Forefront has been reflecting on what it means to be the aroma of Christ in the world (2 Corinthians 2:14-16).

We are half way through our six week series on ‘praying the Lord’s prayer’, and it has been enriching. This Sunday (10:30am, Chard Guildhall) we are looking at the faith request, “give us today our daily bread”.

Check out the Sermon Series notes page for the most recent leaflet, the second part of our focus on 1st Corinthians – and all the notes for the last few years.
Peter walks on the water, with Jesus and their boat … all modelled in a cup of jelly. Children from Rocks ‘n Topz had fun this week making their own Lake Galilee (or is that Jellilee?)
Children of all ages are welcome to join us each Sunday morning at Chard Guildhall for our traditional Sunday School, with crèche for younger kids and the 180 youth group for those over 11.
It takes a lot of smart people working hard behind the scenes to get the Sunday service at Chard Guildhall going each week – set up, projection, children’s church, sound, catering and more. Here, Pete and Philip put the sound board through its paces.
