If we want to make our verse for the year 'Freely you have received, freely give' (Matthew 10:7-8) a reality then we need to be intentional in starting conversations with the people of our City.  We have estimated that we have about 300 people on our Church database - if we all aim to have a conversation with someone about what Jesus has done for us just once a month then that would mean 3,600 Kingdom conversations or encounters in a year!  That's amazing!  Some of those conversations might lead to a chance to serve, pray for and/or share the Jesus story with someone.  Did you know that if just 1% of those conversations lead to someone saying 'yes' to Jesus then would mean 36 new people who would be joining our church family - a good prayer goal to aim for!

However we often we get stuck on how to start a conversation.  To help us we are starting our 'City Connect' once a month on a Saturday.  On our City Connect Saturdays we will, through various initiatives, aim to demonstrate and communicate the love of God to our neighbours in Stratford and in Manor Park.  Each initiative will help us start conversations. There will be training, prayer and it should be fun!  For details of the next session please click here.  Let the conversations begin!

METRO Connect

Our Metro Connect Groups are small groups (8-12 people) that meet together in their local communities every fortnight to connect with God, one another and the City.  They are discipleship groups with a prayerful and missional edge as we seek, together, to advance the Kingdom of God in our neighbourhoods, and move forward to fulfilling our multi-site church vision.  The prayerful aim is to have at least one Metro Connect group in each postcode area across East London.  If you are interested in joining a group, either in-person or online, please email

Micro Connect

Micro Connect groups are small groups of people (2-6) who commit to journey together through this current season.  


The Micro Connect groups follow the example of Jesus and Paul who both had travelling companions.  Jesus had an inner group, within the twelve, consisting of Peter, James and John.  Whereas Paul had various fellow travellers, at different times, on his missionary journeys - including Barnabas, Silas, Timothy and Luke. Micro Connect groups meet together once or twice a month.  The goups are all about being prayerful supportive friends encouraging one another in our pursuit of Jesus and in the mission he has called us to.
