WE ARE

a neighbourhood family on an everyday adventure.


We are big fans of Jesus, so we are learning to do what he says and do what he did.

God is at work creating Heaven on Earth in Canning Town and he’s inviting you to join in. Want to know more?

WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

REAL GOD

God is a friend 🤝, not a fairytale 🙈

So we are confident in the fact that Jesus was a real person who showed us what God is like, putting flesh and bone on the distant, angry, make-believe idea of ‘God’ that many of us have grown up around. We do this by learning from what he did and said, doing it in our lives and seeing that life is positively differently because of him.

REAL LIFE

Monday blues 👔 and Friday fun 💃🏼,
not just Sunday best 🙌🏼

So we don’t shy away from hard conversation and tough situations. We love to celebrate and need no excuses. We’re honest when we’re having a bad time, knowing that crying together is as important as laughing together. The bible shows a God who has dirt under his fingernails because he wants to be involved with the grit of real life. So there’s no need to hide – everyone’s welcome.

REAL CHURCH

We’re a family 👨🏿👩🏽🧒🏼👱🏻 ,
not a tradition ⛪️

So we stay in touch through the week and are learning to have each other’s backs. We’re a community of neighbours that stick together because of God’s love for us. He’s made us all different but we don’t go it alone. So we’re learning to follow Jesus’ example and celebrate what he’s done for us – 2000 years ago and today. In our homes, out at work, walking the dog or wherever: we’re part of his family and learning to live like it.
