Our Vision & Mission

It's not just faith, we endeavour to act upon it...

These are the five pillars that support our vision:

  • Prayer
  • Worship
  • Fellowship
  • Discipleship
  • Evangelism

We believe that all these elements should be evident within all our church life activity.

We recently re-visited our vision to reaffirm what it is:

To EXPERIENCE a great move of God: CHANGING lives: TRANSFORMING communities!

About the Church

A little about the congregation...

Father’s House is a growing, lively Church in Wath Upon Dearne, based in the centre of the Dearne Valley. Our congregation of 100+ is made up of people from the surrounding towns of Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster as well as further afield, such as Leeds! A group of people brought together from all aspects of life, we all come together for one purpose - to Worship God!

As well as our regular members, we often have visitors from around the UK and even abroad.

We are passionate about seeing our community reached and changed by the presence of God and to see our nation and the nations of the world transformed through revival!

We meet together every week with regular services on Sundays and Tuesdays. We also run Connect groups in a number of locations across the region. Other programmes include Junior Church (Freestyle) for Reception age through to Year 7 and our Youth Group (The Branch) for Year 7 – Year 12. We also have a number of itinerant ministries from within our church.

Please see our diary for times and locations of weekly meetings.


New to Fathers House?

Here's a little more about the Church...

If you are thinking of coming to Father's House or even church for the first time we understand its not always easy, this section should help to answer some of your questions.

What happens in a meeting?

Our services are lively and powerful. A usual service will involve:

  • A time of worship – This is usually at the beginning of the service and will be lead by a live band.
  • The message – Someone, usually the Pastor or someone from the leadership team will share a message from the word of God that will be life changing!
  • Ministry Time – This is where people are given chance to respond to God and receive prayer for any reason including sickness or any need.

On a Sunday morning service we take communion together. This involves breaking bread and sharing wine (non alcoholic). We do this to remember what Jesus did for us.

What's available For the children?

There is a Crèche facility just off the main hall equipped with toys, books etc. All children are to be supervised by a parent or guardian whilst using this facility. For ages 5-10 there is a Sunday school during the morning service. Please see 'Freestyle' for more information.

For ages 11-13 there is a Youth Alpha course during the morning service. Please see 'The Branch' for more information.

For school years 7 – 12 there is a weekly Youth group. Please see 'The Branch' for more information.


There is a car park on site, when this is full there is on street parking available nearby.

When you arrive at the church there will be a welcome team on the door. They will be able to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!

Our Roots

How we came to be...

We are firmly rooted in Biblical theology and the Assemblies of God movement, within the wider Pentecostal Church.
