sowing seeds of hope in the community

Welcome

advent week 2

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.

lcm logoChristmas Offering - 16 & 25 December

This year we will be giving the Christmas offering received at our Carols by Candlelight and Christmas Day services to London City Mission, who exist to serve the church of London in sharing the love of God and the good news of Jesus Christ with the least reached of London – those living in poverty, on the margins of society or from other cultures. The gospel is at the heart of all they do, because London needs Jesus.
