A diverse church, equipped to impact the local community and beyond
Crawley is a diverse town, and is home to London Gatwick, a major international airport. We believe that a New Testament church doesn’t just have impact locally, but through Apostolic partnerships, equips people, even sending them into the nations.
We expect to be a deliberately local church, with a global kingdom perspective. Our desire is to partner with New Ground and the New Frontiers family to create a truly international, training, sending and receiving hub in Crawley.
Italy: Currently we are serving the New Ground team in supporting church planting into Italy. We have been working into Italy through relationships for 10 years or so, and now are actively training and preparing a family in the church who are called to plant into the north of Italy.
Romania : In Romania, we have been working with the growing New Ground group of churches, based out of the fabulous Brasov church base. Our main link is with Ioan Ianchis, who has planted over 20 churches around the Transylvanian city of Cluj-Napoca since the fall of communism in 1989. In the last 6 months we have enjoyed visits from leaders from both Brasov and Cluj, as well as sending a team to support their conference and work amongst their leaders.
From April 2015, Flavius Ianchis has joined us from Cluj-Napoca for a year of leadership development. You can find out more about this here:
It has also been wonderful to meet a number of Romanians who are now living and working in Crawley. We are enjoying growing friendship and have seen some join our local church.
Zambia : Through our longstanding friendship with Joseph Mwila, we are one of a number of UK churches encouraging the church planting team in Zambia. In particular, we are sponsoring girls who were living on the streets of the city of Kitwe, as well as resourcing a project to ship a container full of farm equipment to enable the farm to expand. Recently, a number of church members here have been able to visit Zambia and connect with the work personally. Our involvement in specific projects and help will only increase.
