We are a friendly, welcoming bible based evangelical church situated to the east of London just inside the M25 in the Havering Deanery. Whether you are looking to join our church family on a regular basis, or are enquiring about becoming part of the church for a special occasion, such as a wedding, baptism or a social event, these pages should give you all that you need to know.

Each week, children, youth and adults of all ages gather for worship on a Sunday and on weekdays. Newcomers are always greeted with a warm welcome and we hope that you will find a spiritual home amongst us.60th celebration

We have a vision to serve the community as a parish church and have formed good relations with neighbouring schools, local authorities and with other churches and organisations in the area.

If we can be of any assistance to you in any way, please get in touch as we will be glad to hear from you.

As of 1st April 2016 our church will be without a minister. This is known as an 'interregnum', or period between two vicars. 

During this time the church will be in the care of the Bishop of Barking, the Right Reverend Peter Hill, the Archdeacon of Barking, the Venerable Dr John Perumbalath, and the Area Dean of Havering, Reverend Canon David Hague.

We expect the licensing of the new Vicar to be in June 2018.
