Our Mission & Vission

Our Vision

To be an authentic and inclusive church community that will change the world.

We are based in London - United Kingdom, at the beginning of the 21st century so the context in which we live and serve is quite specific and, in some ways, quite unique. Our task as a local church, however, was set for us by Jesus 2000 years ago when he commissioned the church to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20). So, we're about making disciples of Christ. But we're not interested in making just any type of disciple.We believe that if we're going to do something we should do it wholeheartedly and  all the way. If we're going to follow Christ we should jump in with both feet and give it all we've got. The kinds of disciples we're looking to be and make are those whose lives are so shaped and transformed by Jesus that without Him they simply don't make sense. It's radical discipleship we're after.
Training Prisoners to PASTORS.

Our Values

It is our values that give us shape and definition as a church...
1.  We seek to root everything we do in scripture
As Christians we are a “people of the book” and hold the Bible to be authoritative for everything we do and everything we believe.We are shaped and transformed by the Bible's story.
2.  We desire to be led by the Holy Spirit
Being rooted in scripture and submitted to the Lordship of Christ, we desire to be sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and expect Him to move supernaturally and sovereignly,even at the expense of our comfort and convenience.
3.  We aim to build authentic relationships
We believe in the friendship that Jesus modeled; friendship where we empower one another to fulfill our destiny in God. We will pursue authentic, honest relationships, both with fellow believers and with the community, which allow each of us to discover and explore God. We will embrace each other unconditionally and carry each others burdens, even when it costs. We will love each other enough to be vulnerable,speaking the truth in love and growing through conflict. We will pursue friendship before defining function.
4.  We believe all Christians are priests in God's house
We believe the body of Christ will only be built up when each believer plays his or her part. We affirm that every believer,irrespective of age, culture or gender, has the ability,opportunity and responsibility to minister to God and to people,both in the church and in the community. We will encourage and equip believers to minister and create an enabling environment where all can participate in ministry out of their strong relationship with God. In all of this we will be guided by our conviction that, like Jesus, we should look always to serve,rather than be served.

5.  We embrace creative expression
We serve a creative God and believe that each of us is empowered by the Holy Spirit to express ourselves creatively in worship and service. We will celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of Christ's body by creating space for innovation and creativity in our midst.
6.  We are working to build a multicultural, multilingual,multi-class and multi-generational community
We believe that we are called to represent the diversity of God's people within our local community. As such we seek to build a community that embraces the diversity of culture, language,economic class and age that is present in the community around us. We believe that as we embrace our Godly identity we will find community with each other in our communion with Christ.
7.  We believe that the people of God are an apostolic people
God has tasked the church with taking the gospel to the utter most parts of the earth and so, in response to that commission, we will go both to our neighbours and the nations as bearers of good news.
8.  We are convinced that we have been blessed in order that we might be a blessing
We believe the body of Christ will only be built up when each believer plays his or her part. We affirm that every believer,irrespective of age, culture or gender, has the ability,opportunity and responsibility to minister to God and to people,both in the church and in the community.We will encourage and equip believers to minister and create an enabling environment where all can participate in ministry out of their strong relationship with God. In all of this we will be guided by our conviction that, like Jesus, we should look always to serve,rather than be served.We serve a creative God and believe that each of us is empowered by the Holy Spirit to express ourselves creatively in worship and service. We will celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of Christ's body by creating space for innovation and creativity in our midst.We believe that we are called to represent the diversity of God's people within our local community. As such we seek to build a community that embraces the diversity of culture, language,economic class and age that is present in the community around us. We believe that as we embrace our Godly identity we will find community with each other in our communion with Christ.God has tasked the church with taking the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth and so, in response to that commission, we will go both to our neighbours and the nations as bearers of good news.We will give generously of the resources, gifts, talents and people God has blessed us with in order to be a blessing to our city, our country, the world and the church at large. Our level of generosity is determined by our belief that it is better to give than to receive, and that those who sow generously will also reap generously.

Good Morning Jesus

Psalm 143:8 

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift upy soul.

Psalm 5:3 

O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

John 1:1-51 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Psalm 30:5 

For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

Proverbs 3:1-35 

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Job 38:12 

“Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place.

Galatians 5:1 

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Psalm 130:6 

My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

Lamentations 3:22-23 

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Hosea 6:4 

What shall I do with you, O Ephraim? What shall I do with you, O Judah? Your love is like a morning cloud, like the dew that goes early away.
