Welcome to the Church on the Roundabout website. Church on the Roundabout is what the locals have fondly called the Newport Elim Church on the Isle of Wight. Take a visit to Coppins Bridge roundabout and you’ll know why!
Tony Murphy and his wife Sally have been running the church for more than ten years. We are a multi-generational church with plenty of life and activities for all ages. Our tagline is “God filled and fun, welcoming everyone”
Visit us every Sunday at 9:30am and 11am . Come early for tea/coffee and nibbles. We meet on Coppins Bridge, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 2BX.
Lively Worship, child friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
WHAT GOES ON IN A MORNING SERVICE? The morning begins at 11am (or earlier if you fancy a coffee– served from 10.30am!)with a whole church time of Praise & worship. All ages are encouraged to join in, by using our extensive box of musical instruments! During this time we also include other whole-church activities, such as quizzes, videos, drama etc etc. At about 11.30 the children go to “Sunday Funday” (we don’t like the term “school”… after all it’s the weekend!). We run up to 3 groups for all ages. The adults are treated to an approximate 20 minute sermon and often a time of communion or ministry. About 12.15, it officially ends, the children come back in, coffee is served but often the praise and worship continues on… God tends to “hang around”!
How to find us
We are situated on a very busy roundabout in Newport. If you are coming from Ryde we are on the left hand side as you come into Newport. Unfortunately we do not have our own parking, but there is roadside parking in the local area and a couple of public car parks.
Our VISION is to grow 3 dimensionally…
IN GOD (looking to fufil all our potential in him, be filled with his Spirit, healing and wholeness); IN NUMBER (1% of Newport = 240, 1% of our personal communities = 60, so overall we’re looking at 300 in the first instance); INTO OUR COMMUNITIES (building up and increasing our links with our communities)
Our Mission is becoming a God-centred community…
Making space for God to be God in every area of Church life
Helping each other to grow in the knowledge of God’s Unconditional Love
Being Family-Friendly– the best place in the world for children
Serving our community & sharing our resources.
Sharing the Good News in new, relevant, innovative ways. (Same message, changing society)
Kingdom thinking! We are part of something big on the Island…England…The World
The most important decision we can ever make, because it starts now and lasts for eternity! (John 3v16)
God is only ONE PRAYER AWAY (Romans 10v9)- because of the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross to pay the price for ALL our sin (Romans 4v25). To know God in your life, try a prayer like this one:
“Lord Jesus, I thank you that you died on the cross, in my place to pay the price for all my sin and then rose again from the dead. Please come and fill my life today and help me day by day to walk in your ways. AMEN”
If you have said this prayer, WELCOME to God’s family! Contact us, or a Christian you know asap!
