Who we are

We're a Church of England Church in Churchgate Street (north-east Harlow) serving Old Harlow, Churchgate Street, Gilden Park, and Newhall, as well as the wider area. We come from a wide range of backgrounds and churches.

We are evangelical - seeking to be shaped by God's Word in the Bible, and committed to personal relationships with Jesus - and charismatic - welcoming the gifts and leading of the Holy Spirit. 

Above all, we are a group of people who have come to know God as our loving Father. We have experienced what Jesus achieved for us when He died on the cross - namely, the forgiveness of our sins and our adoption as God's children. We have also discovered that God is present with us in the person of His Holy Spirit whom we see at work in our lives. Our purpose as Christians is to worship God and to serve Him in all we do. 

We believe that God's love for all of us is tremendous news and that He wants us to share it with others. 

Try Praying

During May, we are focusing on Prayer and are looking at trypraying. You can find out more on this short video & pick up a booklet at church to try it out. The ideas are for those who don't do church, as well as those who do! 

We hope you discover more of the God who we have found answers prayer and loves us! 


Here's a link to the website that explains all about trypraying.
