We believe that we have a God given commission to serve the people within our local community and those connected to Plaistow and surrounding areas. The Lord has called and equipped us so that we can share His love and provide support to those who may be in need.


Our primary witness will be through lives of loving service and living evangelism. We will seek for an increase of the Lord's Presence in other life giving churches, in local government and in the community at large.

We plan to fulfil His commission by first yielding our own lives to Jesus, by loving each other and seeking to show His unconditional Love to all we live amongst; to pray diligently and seek to serve people practically as He enables us.

We will endeavour to establish a permanent and settled House of prayer and worship; and to serve our neighbours. Under God’s guidance and leadership, we will establish a spiritual stronghold that represents the Lord Jesus.


Our vision is to be a place of refuge where those who are hurting can find Peace; those who are depressed, distressed, forsaken and confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement.

Our vision is to see a vibrant church that embraces the young, the elderly, the rich and the poor without judgement or prerequisites. It is the dream of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with thousands of residents in around our city.


Our vision is to open our doors so that we can welcome an abundance of People who are willing to give their hearts to the Lord in recognition of the Sacrifice that He made for our sins.


Our vision is to share fellowship of our church family -- loving, learning, laughing, and living in harmony and being the example that we want to see in our communities.
