If you visit us on a Sunday, you'll find a diverse group of around 250 people welcoming and worshipping with a lot of warmth. It always daunting going somewhere for the first time but we hope this brief description will help; if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org, 01895 233466).
The first thing you'll notice is the smell of toast (we're yet to meet someone who doesn't like it) as the doors swing open for you. From 10am onwards you can grab some toast and a hot drink as you chat in the foyer or find a seat in the main hall.
At 10.30 the band strikes up and we use some of the best songs from around the world to worship God. This is followed by a few minutes of announcements and then someone will preach and teach from the Bible. At the end of the meeting, you will always have the opportunity to talk with someone and pray with them, if you want to discover more about Jesus and be healed of anything.
Our Kids Church Registration takes place from 10.20am and teams of DBS-checked volunteers run dedicated worship and activities for 6 different age-groups.
The meeting finishes at 12 noon; the best 90-minutes of your weekend.
(NB. All the facilities are wheelchair-accessible)
Some bold Crown Church signs will point you into the big car park at the front of Bishopshalt School; there are plenty of spaces. There's a footpath that connects Royal Lane with Cleveland Road, by the athletics track, that makes it very easy for students to walk from Brunel campus.
The 427 and A10 are the closest bus stops to the venue, but the U1, U2, U3, U4, U5 and U7 all stop within 10 minutes walking distance, and these buses provide an easy link from the local underground stations or Heathrow Airport (if you decide to fly in for a visit).

Julian and his wife Debbie have been at Crown Church before it existed. They moved to West London believing that God was calling them to be part of a church plant. They and their three children have sacrificially served Crown, especially in Julian's ministry of leading the BFI team, serving international students at Brunel.
