Home Groups

Supporting one another in knowing Jesus and living with him everyday

We have a number of Home Groups that meet mid-week in homes, some weekly and others every two weeks.  Most groups meet in the evenings but some during the day.  We would love everyone to be part of a Home Group so please contact a member of the Home Group Leadership team for details (Bart Erlebach, Joanne and Robin Walpole and Amanda Kresinska) via the Church office.

Prayer Focus

First and Third Wednesday of every month | 8pm

During lockdown we are meeting twice every month on Zoom.  Zoom meeting details are circulated to the Church Family in the day(s) before the meeting.  Prayer Focus is a chance to gather as a church family and pray for the needs of the church, for events coming up that month and things happening in the world. We usually spend a short time looking at God’s word before turning to pray; we often split into smaller groups for this.

Mission Gift Day

The 2020 Mission Gift Day is taking place on Harvest Sunday 4 October.  As a Church we support individuals working for the following organisations: UFM Worldwide (Kenya), Oxygen (Kingston-upon-Thames), CMS (Rwanda), KCAH (Kingston-upon-Thames), Hephzibah Project (Manchester /Greece).  Throughout the year, we regularly hear from these mission partners, with prayers requests and updates.

At Harvest we will also collect food and needed items for the Kingston Foodbank.  To find out which items are in most need, please look here.

As a Church we also support Insight through giving to our General Fund.  You can find out more about Insight and the excellent work they do in many schools in the Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames by clicking here.

Forward Focus Sunday

Our Forward Focus meeting is a chance to look back at what God has been doing in our church family over the last year to look forward to the year coming.   At this meeting we elect our Church Wardens and PCC members.  This meeting will be live-streamed  following the service on Sunday 25 April.  The APCM, our joint-meeting with Christ Church, takes place on Monday 26 April at 8pm.  Details on how you can join this meeting coming soon.
