An encounter with Christ at church@five

When Samantha moved to the Strawberry Vale Estate in East Finchley, she was aware that her life was missing something. When a chance encounter with the community of church@five gave her an experience of Jesus, she began a transformative journey into leadership.

Millions of people who live on social housing estates don’t have a local accessible worshipping community. That’s why we want to plant new worshipping communities where there is no church and help existing estate churches to flourish – to reach people like Samantha with the good news of Jesus.

If you would like to find out more about the support CCX can offer for estates mission, including Become – an accessible theology and leadership course with a creative, interactive approach to teaching – Helen Shannon and Ash Chafe of the CCX Estates Mission Team would love to hear from you.
