CommunityBuilding Healthy Community

“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”

Romans 15:7

As Christian people we believe that God has a heart for building community and invites us to join him. In practice this has meant people from Kingfisher church being involved in a range of activities that provide support to different people in our community.

At Kingfisher Church we run a number of Christian programmes, integrated with the life of the church, focused on reaching out into our local communities of Paxcroft Mead and Castle Mead, with the aim of building up the church community.

Alpha Course – exploring the Christian faith in discussion groups in someone’s home.

Marriage Course – supporting families by strengthening relationships through informal evenings.

CONNECT – is church based initiative providing mentoring for young people in local secondary schools.

At Kingfisher Church our desire is to reach out into the local community to show the love of Jesus, but also to work with the local communities and organisations in practical and supportive ways.

We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Mead Community Primary School since we started meeting there in 2009.

Many of our younger members have attended the school at some point. Our leader Alison gives assemblies at the school telling the children about the church and sharing her faith with them. As well as this she is a governor of the new school on Castle Mead and we as a church are seeking to engage ourselves with this new community.
