Who We Are – About Us

identity_statement5_web_windowWanting to see God’s Kingdom Life appear all over the city …

Based in and around the city of Ely, we seek to follow Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives, and to take the Kingdom life that Jesus brings across the city.

In seeking to worship we pursue a profound experience of God, wanting to know more of Him, going deeper, wider and further. We endeavour to reach ever closer to Jesus on purpose, knowing that this will inevitably urge us out to serve the world around us …

… so we seek to serve, being directed by God out to a hurting world. With a Kingdom focus we ask ‘what is God doing?’, and ‘How does He want us to join in?’. As we venture out we are open to explore new ways and possibilities.

We do this together, recognising the communal nature of God and the call to discipleship in community. Everyone big or small, young or old brings value, and we try to take everyone with us, at least as far as is possible in our human frailty.

Seeking to Worship, Seeking to Serve
