A Christ Centred Community

Devoted to seeing our community transformed.

The heart behind Kings Church

Our aim is to build a Christ Centred Community: A community that demonstrates and lives out the principles of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to impact the wider community of which we are a part, and that Cheylesmore itself would become a Christ Centred Community – one that lives with integrity, love and compassion.

We are a registered charity and a part of a wider national network of churches called Pioneer. We have connections with other churches in Coventry and we are also a part of a network of eight local churches, containing a range of denominations, known as South Coventry Churches.

We hope our website helps you to find out everything you would like to know about King’s Church Coventry.
If you do have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Dave Jamieson’s (founder of King’s Church Coventry) heart for local church ignited in December 1978 when he had an angelic visitation and a prophetic word from the Lord. These are some of the words he received:

“I am doing a new work in these days prior to my coming again. There will be an outpouring of my Spirit in a new, yet old way on the final in-gathering of my children into my body. This will make my body one body. They will be united locally as the people of God, Jesus’ people, and the world will see clearly the love they have for one another.”

From this time on Dave was inspired to see a local expression of church at the centre of a community so when the family moved to Cheylesmore they began meeting with other local Christians on Sunday afternoons. They began meeting in one-another’s homes until they eventually moved to meet in Cheylesmore Community Centre. They are known today as King’s Church Coventry.

Dave sadly passed away in 2010 and so currently his son, Paul, is leading the church and managing the community centre. The ongoing purpose, to be an expression of God’s love in the local community, still remains at the heart of the church Dave planted over 20 years ago.

JESUS AT THE CENTRE

We want to be obedient to Jesus and develop our faith. This involves having confidence in God and an expectation that He will work.

We want to live lives that honour Jesus.

We strive to build a relationship with God through prayer, worship, seeking His will, intercession and warfare.

The Bible is the foundation and plumb line of the church and we seek to read and apply the word in accountable relationships.

EVERY MEMBER IN MINISTRY

Everyone is encouraged and equipped to understand and use their gifts, as led by the Holy Spirit, to contribute to the work of the Kingdom of God.

We want to use our gifts, time, energy and money to serve others within and outside the church.

We believe that leadership is a function, marked by an attitude of service to the church.

We know that practical hospitality is everyone’s responsibility.

EVERY MEMBER MATURING IN CHRIST

We believe in discipleship that encourages a desire to grow and change, to become like Jesus, free to serve the Lord.

Growing in love and honouring all people, forgiving those who hurt us.

As we grow we recognise the ministry and encouragement of one another in the Body of Christ.

EVERYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING JESUS KNOWN

We recognise God’s heart of compassion for everyone.

Small groups are responsible for:

  1. Growing and multiplying as new people join the group.
  2. A shared commitment to friends and family who do not know Jesus, seeking ways to introduce them to Him.
  3. Supporting one another as we work to see the Kingdom of God extended in our spheres of influence.

SMALL GROUPS ARE COMMUNITIES MARKED BY SACRIFICIAL LOVE AND HONEST RELATIONSHIPS

Small groups are not meetings! They’re a group where dynamic, loving, caring and accountable relationships encourage discipleship and outreach.

Small groups are outward looking – not just focused on themselves!

Our community life includes the children and young people in the church, whose gifts and service are recognised. We encourage collective responsibility by all adults for the children and young people.
