church community

We are a passionate, vibrant and Spirit filled church, working out Kingdom values, and longing to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.


Whether you are wanting to find out more about joining and building with us, enquiring about how to really KNOW Jesus, or just need some help with 'life', hit the contact tab and drop us a line - we would love to speak with you. 


We're not designed to live this life on our own, come and connect with us and find a brand new family!


Christian to the Core is one of the programmes we use for discipleship. It is a 12 session journey through the eight core values of the most effective Christians discovered through global research. You will be challenged as you grow deeper in your intimacy with God and discover his greater purposes for your life. Here are the 8 core values studied in depth over the 12 sessions:


1. Intimacy with God - including Spiritual disciplines

2. Passion for the Harvest

3. A Visionary Life - Vision & Overcoming Obstacles

4. Culturally Relevant Evangelism

5. Multiplication of Disciples - through Discipleship

6. Family Priority

7. Faithful Stewardship - including Spiritual Gifts

8. Integrity - including Finishing Well

Worship & Prayer

Worship is at the heart of our DNA as a church! We enjoy a freedom of expression in worship that allows each person to meet with the Lord in spirit and in truth.


We love to express our praise and worship and encourage everyone who joins us to develop this same passion and intimacy with God. We understand worship isn't just something we do on Sundays but actually something we are designed to live in each day!


We believe 'praise' must go first, so we always begin our times of gathering by focusing our minds and hearts on God. This encourages faith to rise up in us and faith always attracts the presence of God!

Regular times of prayer are part of our programme.

Connect Groups

Members are encouraged to be part of a small group who connect regularly. These vary depending on the season the church is going through and may include:

Daytime praise/worship, Bible study and ministry time


Midweek evening fellowship gatherings


Small prayer support groups


Specific Prayer times


Believers Baptism Classes

Children & Youth Ministries

God has clearly designed families to be the primary context where spiritual growth happens. Parents spend the most time with their children and are the most influential people in their children's lives.
1ST STEPS, is our Sunday ministry for children up to 5yrs.

TRAILBLAZERS, is our Sunday ministry for children aged 6yrs to 12yrs.

YOUTH ministry is our Youth/Young Adults12yrs to 16yrs.


Schools Ministry in Mitcham

For over 20 years we have helped to develop a schools ministry that has reached primary schools across Merton, including Cricket Green school for children with diverse learning difficulties. Working with other schools workers in the area, we have been coordinating the Bible Explorer teaching Programme in Mitcham and Merton schools.

Kevin is a teacher and trainer for Walk through the Bible ministries and teaches the children's version Bible Explorer in local primary schools. This consists of five, one hour teaching sessions designed for school years 5 & 6 of both the Old and New Testaments.


Schools ministry is a significant part of our work. A key aspect of our vision is to oversee the teaching of the Bible to primary school children in Mitcham. We seek to do this through school assemblies and teaching Bible Explorer RE lessons, and whole school projects.

*Bible Explorer is now called OT and NT Mini
