This is an unprecedented time but we have been planning for how to love God and our neighbours. We confidently believe that God’s Word is never restricted, even when we are (2 Timothy 2:9).
Every Sunday at 10.30am we will be live streaming a Sunday services via our YouTube channel.

Here’s what usually happens:
As usual, small groups are our first point of pastoral care. Our small groups will continue to meet – but again this will happen online. Each group is working out the best way to make this happen and we’ve had many creative responses. Some groups meet for coffee and chat before or after our Sunday services, and all meet during the week as well.
You can still join a small group at this time: visit our Small Groups page or contact Chris Rawson for more information.Email Chris

The New Testament church cared for its members, especially in times of crisis. One of the great examples of this was a man known as Barnabas who “sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet” for it to be given to any in the church who were in need (Acts 4:34-37).
We want to help those in King’s who are going through financial hardship during the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath. To do this we are setting up The Barnabas Account to provide emergency financial assistance. The account will be made up from donations by members of King’s, with a small initial amount coming from the church’s current savings.
