Who We Are – About Us
Based in and around the city of Ely, we are a church in mission across the city. We seek to follow Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives, and to take the Kingdom life that Jesus brings across the city.
As a people called together to be a local church, we look to nurture faith in all ages, newcomers and the older and wiser. We are about forming community, working like an extended family that is glad to invite others in. We reach out, sensitively yet confidently telling about Jesus through what we say and do. Sometimes this involves listening to and speaking into the culture around us. We also try to be attentive to the Spirit’s leading, to be ready to pioneer to new places & ministries.
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. So in short we are …
Seeking to Worship, Seeking to Serve
We want to see Kingdom Life across the city
We are a baptist church, operating in the city of Ely. You can read more about what is important to us as a church here.
The church is made up of people who commit to follow Christ together and seek Jesus for the direction of the church, as explained on our page about membership.
We are self-financing – with our resources being the people who take part in the life of the church, their time, gifts, talents and whatever finances they wish to give.
The church is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, i.e. a registered charity with registration number 1166937. It is part of the Countess of Huntingdon’s Connexion – read more of the Countess of Huntingdon and the history of the Connexion here. We are also associated with the Eastern Baptist Association (and therefore also the Baptist Union of Great Britain).
