Twynham Church, Christchurch
Twynham Church for the community can to be found on Barrack Road in Christchurch opposite Homebase on the Christchurch Retail Park.
It is an independent evangelical church and very much in the heart of the local community. The church has been around since the 1860's but moved to its present location in 1948 building on land once housing an Old Soldiers Home.
The present church boasts great facilities with a large multi-purpose sanctuary, another large youth centre to rear and an upper room for smaller meetings and prayer times. The church sanctuary can seat between 120-150 people and a warm welcome is given to all at either of its morning services. Twynham Church is also part of the Christchurch Fellowship of Churches (CFOC) and Pastor Rob Watson is CFOC Convener.
Its location and excellent resources make Twynham Church a great location for Wessex Filling Station prayer meetings and worship team technical rehearsals; plus of course the 2017 On The Road in Christchurch Wessex Filling Station with Andy Economides!
99 Barrack Road
The church boasts a medium sized car park to front and side. However ample parking can be found opposite the church on the Christchurch Retail Park, Bailey Street, Christchurch, BH23 2BN (see map below). If you park to the right of the large car park in front of Homebase/Barrack Road there is only a short walk across the road to the church.
The Homebase car park is monitored by AMPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) by Highview Parking London. We called this company and inquired after the use of the car park for church events at Twynham Church and were told that "there is a 3 hour limit to car park usage so as long as someone doesn't park there cars longer than the 3 hour limit, usage of the car park is fine."
Please be aware that if you go over the 3 hour limit parking fines will be applied by post from London.
