sowing seeds of hope in the community

Welcome

church

We are a group of local Christians in Stoneleigh, Epsom, Surrey, seeking to share the positive difference that Jesus makes to our lives, and to discover, together, more of the forgiveness, peace, love security and hope that He promises to His followers.

We're learning together how to trust Jesus in putting this into effect in our everyday lives, as we journey together.

We’d like to welcome you amongst us, and encourage you to walk with us for a while: we'd value your company and friendship.

cross and biblePeter Birchinall

We are sad to announce Peter Birchinall, our much-loved former Pastor, has gone to be with the Lord. Please pray for his family, that they will know the love and comfort of God's everlasting arms up-holding them in the days to come.

eu referendumEU Referendum

On 23 June 2016, the UK will go to the polls to decide on the future of the UK’s relationship with the European Union. Christians have varied opinions about this crucially important issue, but the following may help you to engage in prayer and debate:

1) CARE (Christian Action Research and Education)

2) Evangelical Alliance

  • Visit eauk.org who have produced a series of resources to help you think through issues including freedom, democracy and economics, as well as helpful pieces explaining how the EU works and what others think about whether we should leave or remain
