“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” (Luke 4:18-19)
We have seen many within the church family develop and grow in their faith journey, alongside many from outside the church, experiencing God's love (often through our missional projects) and then starting a personal faith journey with Jesus.
We have a rich history here and have recently birthed TransformUK, which will have a local focus through TransformShoreditch as well as national focus through other UK projects and an international focus with TransformCoffee.
Is to deepen our relationship with God and to continue to reach out to others with love and compassion.
We believe that the Church is key to transforming our local community – and that by working closely with our members, we can transform our society with the good news of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
We aim to do this through our personal walk with Christ and by following Jesus’ example.
The Upward Journey
We are called to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. It is the first commandment Jesus gave us.
The Inward Journey
We are all encouraged to allow the love of God into all areas of our heart, including the messed up places, so that we can help and minister more effectively the love of God to others.
The Outward Journey
We believe that as Christians we should be walking in the power and grace of Jesus, bringing encouragement, healing, deliverance and all of the benefits of God to the world around us, and to this end, believe in equipping the church to do the Father’s work. We do this through Transform Shoreditch in partnership with Transform UK.
“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honouring each other.”
