WHO WE ARE


We are part of the United Reformed Church (URC) which is itself part of the World Communion of Reformed Churches, in total over 80 million Christians world-wide.
The church is led by our minister Revd Derrick Dzandu-Hedidor and a team of Elders and officers.

Sunday Worship: We have one service on a Sunday morning at 10.30am. People will be there to welcome and help you and we hope you will join us for coffee and cakes after the service. The children join in the start of the service but then have activities especially for them. We are a friendly multi-racial church, as well as people born and brought up in the area, others have moved here over the years, particularly from Ghana.

Our congregation spans a wide age range; from babies to 90+, with people in every decade. We organise different social events during the year and our ‘bring and share’ lunches after some services are always popular. We try to make sure that we are accessible to everyone: we have a level entrance at the side for anyone with mobility difficulties, a hearing aid loop, large-print hymn books and an accessible toilet.

We believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and find our supreme authority for faith and conduct in the word of God. Revealed to us in the Holy Bible through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

As his people, we worship God, seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit in prayer and study together. We will share with others the love of God, in word and action, to enable them make a response to his Son Jesus Christ.

As a Christian church near the center of Croydon we believe that we should show the love of God in action, through helping to provide for people’s needs, as well as sharing with them our own faith in God and His Son Jesus Christ.


OUR VISION

A place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant. The music is contemporary and upbeat with a praise team and full band.

A church that is fun for the entire family, a church where kids want to go because they have a great time experiencing God’s love. A church that builds families.

These dreams are being fulfilled because they are inspired by God!

A a church that helps every member find their ministry and lets them use their gifts and abilities to meet other’s needs. We believe the church is at her best when the doors are open to all of who have an interest in learning about the Christian faith. Wherever you are on your journey, regardless of where you fall on the deep questions of faith, our community is open to you.
