When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:36-38

55 million people live in England. Many of those people do not know Christ and do not have a meaningful contact with a church. We share the compassion of God for the lost, and we long to see more and more people reached for Christ throughout out nation. To reach those people, we recognise the need to pioneer new churches across the UK. We want to send pioneer ministers into part of the country, to evangelise, gather a team and start new AMiE churches.

Current Pioneer Church Planting Projects

Redeemer Church, Thanet

Cornerstone Church Colchester

Partner – We are a small group of followers of the Lord Jesus who are committed to pioneering the first AMiE church in Thanet. The Isle of Thanet in East Kent, comprises of the towns Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate with the abutting village of Cliffsend. The latter is the location of Redeemer Church. Our aim is to spread God’s gospel to one of the most deprived areas in England. Would you partner us?

Praise – We praise God for providing us with a minister who will pastor his people at Redeemer Church. And we give thanks that he has also provided a suitable venue for us to meet, in the village hall of Cliffsend. Join us in praise and thanksgiving to our generous heavenly Father for also providing some donations through the giving of his people.

Pray – We would value your partnership by committing to pray for this pioneering church plant in Thanet. If you would like to receive a regular prayer letter please contact us at: info.redeemer.ramsgate@gmail.com

Provide – We depend on the giving of God’s people at Redeemer Church and elsewhere. In this crucial start-up phase, we are still in need of support if we are to make an impact for God in our area. Please prayerfully consider how you can support us financially, either with a one-off gift or by means of regular payments.

A loving community, growing in Jesus Christ, by Word and Spirit.”

Starting in the home…

We are seeking to grow, as a Biblical model of church, in which all aspects of our church life begin in the home… 
 
Evangelism – We want to be encouraging people to hear the gospel for the first time in the home or online as well as in the gathering where the Bible is proclaimed.
 
Discipleship – We are seeking to be in each others lives, able to talk about our faith and model for each other how we grow in Christ day to day in prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit.
 
Gathering – Our services are currently in the home and online, intergenerational, hospitable and relational and we hope will continue this way even when we move to rent a public space for larger gathering.
 
Leadership – We are seeking to model Christ like service and godliness, as individuals, in friendship, in marriage, in family life and work in ways that can be “caught” as well as taught.
 
Please to partner with us, in prayer, pounds and people. Why not join us!
