Welcome to the website of Claremont Congregational Church.

The purpose of this website is twofold:
First, it is to inform members and the public as to what is happening within our church; and second, to encourage members to become involved in any area that may interest them.

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as they had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people.

My prayer is that together we will bring glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
