Anderson Church Family

We have an  active membership of 80, half of whom are Nepali speakers.  We seek to be accepting and welcoming of all who come and so our current congregation includes European, Asian and African people of all ages.

Our extended church family includes 120 people connected to our Sunday services, and around 200 in our community groups (Scouts, toddler group, etc). About half of those connected with the church live in the vicinity.

Sunday morning is our central gathering, with a congregation of around 80, including people of different ages, backgrounds and nationalities.
