Our multi-cultural congregation numbers about 80 adults and 60 children and teenagers. We are located in north Peckham, an area with a very high concentration of immigrants from west Africa, which is represented in our church.
Christ Church is led by Hugh and Helen Balfour. The other staff are part-time: an administrator and a youth worker.
Our values have been heavily influenced by Bethel Church in Redding CA. At the heart of our life is a desire to carry out Jesus' commission in Matthew 10:7, 8: to preach the good news, heal the sick and deliver people from the demonic. To do this it is vital to be filled with God's power, to submit to His word and to encounter His presence. This is as important for the children as it is for the adults.
