Get Connected at New Community Sholing

COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with the latest government guidelines, we have had to cancel our services and groups for the foreseeable future.

We're more than just Sunday mornings. We're community and family, and we'd love to get to know you and help you to feel at home with us.

Whether you're new to church, new to New Community Sholing, or simply want to get to know more people, there are ways you can connect with others, grow in your faith, and build friendships and community.

Connect Groups

Connect groups are our small groups that meet during the week, and they provide a great opportunity to get to know other people and grow in your relationship with God.

We currently have three connect groups and a men's meeting, and these meet in different locations. If you'd like to join a connect group, please email for information on how to get involved.

Community Café Mornings

Once a week, we're opening the coffee area at St Andrew's Church, Sholing, as a place to meet for a coffee, light refreshments, and a chat.

If you'd like to get to know others better in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is for you. All ages are welcome, including young children with their parents. It’s also a great place for meetings with friends or colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere.

Prayer ministry and advice about faith issues will also be available for those who want it.

Come along and try it!

Who it's for: Open to all.
When: Every Wednesday, 10-11.30am.
Where: St. Andrew's, 204 South East Road, Sholing, SO19 8LW.

Monthly Quiz Night

Test your general knowledge, and get to know others at the same time, at our monthly quiz night! These evenings will be relaxed and fun, and whether you're a quiz-newby or a quiz-master, you're sure to have a great time! You can come with a team, or join a team on the evening and make some new friends.

Who they're for: Open to all. This isn't a specifically Sholing congregation event, but advertised across the whole church.
When: Usually the second Saturday of each month, starting at 10am, but check our calendar of events for any changes.
Where: We meet at a different location each month. Check our calendar of events for this month's location.
