Welcome to Victoria Dock Church's website
Hopefully on the web site you will find out all you need to know about the Church.
Our Vision Statement
“Victoria Dock Church exists to see people and communities transformed by the power of God's love in action.”
About the Church
Our members come from all sorts of backgrounds, but we have one thing in common. We are finding out together what it means to follow Jesus and to serve Him in all we do. Right here, right now. You may just be looking, you may have questions or you may have journeyed with the Lord for many years - it does not matter, just come as you are.
Our Sunday morning services are informal and contemporary. We meet every Sunday at 10.30am in the Village Hall on Southbridge Road, Hull, UK. To find out more about our Sunday services click on the link.
The Church of England began work here back in 1990, and has been conducting public services of worship since 1993. We welcome all who would benefit from membership of their local church. The Church is led
by the Revd Martyn Westby (tel. 781090, email Martyn Westby
and a leadership team (known as a "District Church Council") made up of lay members from the congregation. The Church is part of the Parish of Drypool.
What else do we do?
Christianity is a whole life experience. We each need encouragement to keep going, not just on Sunday but during the week, long after the sermon has faded from your mind. Small groups meet weekly on a Wednesday :
to encourage one another.
To follow Christ by sharing in worship, outreach and friendship together
To be a place of grass roots care and mutual support
To share joys and sorrows
To forge new friendships and deepen trust
To have fun together"
As a whole Church family we try to meet socially once every two months. In the past, we have done such things as bowling, picnics, parties, meals at different houses, trips to the beach, talent nights and dancing.
We believe that children are today's Church and tomorrow's leaders so we are very welcoming. We have toys, books and games at the back of church. We host a Messy Church every quarter on a Sunday afternoon.
As part of the Church of England Parish of Drypool we have a Child Protection Policy which includes CRB checks for those who have contact with children.
If you are interested in what Christianity has to offer, but have questions you want answered, why not consider Alpha?
The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.
As a Church we take an interest in social and justice issues. We are a fairtrade Church so all the tea and coffee we have after the service is fairly traded and once a month we hold a fairtrade stall.
