Church @ Hanover

Church @ Hanover

2023 is our twelfth year as ‘Church @ Hanover’, still enjoying our 4th Sunday service each month, with an average of 40 - 45 people attending.  Some live at Hanover Gardens, plus some from our village and further away.

We have Bible based teaching, relevant prayers, as well as enthusiastic and encouraging hymn singing.

Our services are quite traditional, yet relaxed and friendly, just as we like them to be.

The after service fellowship time, with cuppa and biscuits, is a delight to witness; we are a really happy Church family.

All of this is because God answered people’s prayers (long ago), who asked him for a second church at the far end of the village from the main church.  So we praise and thank him for hearing and answering prayers.

God is a God who has the poor, the oppressed, the outcasts especially at heart and encourages us , like Jesus, to chose to draw alongside and defend the rights, to live a life of love towards these people.  FAIRTRADE is one way to respond to this challenge. FAIRTRADE is, itself, about choices -  using our power of choice to allow others the choice to improve their lives and communities and plan for their futures, to escape the crippling poverty that would restrict or remove choice in and from their lives.  When you chose to buy products with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you support farmers and workers receiving a fair wage for their work, decent working conditions, protection of workers' rights and the environment.  Also, an additional Fairtrade Premium is included that they get to choose how to invest in business or community projects, such as schools, transport, health care and sanitation.

As a church, we have made a commitment to be a FAIRTRADE church, this means our PCC has agreed to use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and all meetings which we have responsibility for; that we will move towards using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit and that we will promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year.  We have tried to honour this through events such as giving opportunities for people to order Fairtrade goods at Christmas, Fairtrade fashion shows, assemblies and lessons in local schools, Fairtrade stalls at local community events, as well as providing materials for individuals to help inform and spread the Fairtrade message to the people they live, work and socialise with.

Church Records

Church Records

The Church maintains baptism, marriage and burial records, going back a long way. We aren’t allowed to publish recent weddings and baptisms because of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). However, GDPR ceases to apply after death, so we can publish very old records, some dating back to the 16th century.  Feel free to browse:

Baptisms from long ago

Burials and associated plots can be found under the 'Resources' section of this website under the folder named 'Churchyard'
