Welcome to our website once again. We hope you will spend a few minutes finding out who we are and what we are about.
Hello, my name is Alan and I am the Pastor of Meon Vale Community Church. I am married to Valerie and we have been married for nearly 13 years. I am an Elim minister and I am bi-vocational which means I have another job as well as being Pastor for MVCC. Prior to coming to Meon Vale I was Pastor at The Oasis Christian Centre in Stratford upon Avon from 2010 – 2014.
Hello, my name is Valerie and I am married to Alan. Apart from my full time occupation I also work voluntarily as a counsellor for a local Christian organisation.
Valerie & I first visited Meon Vale in the summer of 2014 to witness the opening of the new Leisure Centre. Whilst viewing the village and all its amenities, as good as they are, we were struck with the thought
“Where is the Church to serve the Community here”?
We began to pray and by the end of 2014 we sensed we should start a new expression of church on Meon Vale. We first advertised in the local newspaper and arranged an initial meeting with those who responded to the advert. Since then in 2015 we have held Café Chat Live at the Village Hall and organised “A Slice of Christmas” in December of the same year. In February 2016 we held our first Craft Club which continues to meet fortnightly.
Regular Home Church services started in January 2016 at our home and more recently we have begun our Explore series at the Village Hall, Meon Vale on Friday evenings.
