A ROMSEY church is encouraging people to join them for a new style service tomorrow.

Freedom Church, which meets in the The Romsey School hall, is launching The 7! A fresh approach to Sunday evenings.

The new service will be held in the main hall, starting at 7pm – hence the name. For the launch event this Sunday, September 10, there will be a barbecue with burgers served up for the first 70 or so people to arrive from 6.30pm onwards –free of charge.

The event itself will feature live worship, a short ‘TED-style’ talk and interactive discussions.

Freedom Church’s Hannah Shepherd, who leads the team organising the event, said: “If you’ve never ‘done Church’ before, you are more than welcome to make The7 your first visit.

“The team have worked really hard to create a space where people feel welcomed, at home, and as far from intimidated as can be.

“The 7, we hope, will be an evening that will inspire you and encourage you!”.

This event will continue on every second Sunday of the month at 7pm and is just one of many exciting events in the planning as Freedom Church continues to grow and make a difference in the community.
