    Who are we?

    We are a Reformed Evangelical group of churches who are specifically interested in reaching out to people around our churches.  We want to reach out to our communities in a meaningful way.  We endeavour to use all the biblical resources available.  We also have a focus on outreach leading up to and during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    We have now been involved in this work and preparation for the Olympic Games coming to London during July and August 2012 for over 5 years.

    We hope you will join us in praying for our communities and those who plan to attend the Olympic Games.

  • What is Grace?

    What is Grace?

    Put simply ...
    Physical or Spiritual
    Regeneration & Legacy
    at someone else's
    expense

    Olympic Grace

    The Olympics and their sponsors have effectively provided physical Grace to the area of East London, previously an area of great deprivation and neglect, now regenerated and provided a great legacy.

    Our Grace

    Our Grace has been provided by God, a great kindness we don't deserve. There is nothing we have done, nor can ever do to earn this favour. It is a gift from God. Grace is the divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration (rebirth) from their disobedience to a state of the eternal legacy of being with God. It is this Grace we wish to share with others.

    God's Riches At Christ's Expense. It is by grace you were saved through faith, and not of yourself.

    We would like to welcome the world to:

    • Olympic Games (27 Jul - 12 Aug 2012)

    Olympic Principals

    The key principals of the International Olympic and Paralympic Games are Excellence, Friendship, Respect, Determination, Courage, Inspiration, and Equality

    Our Principals

    As Reformed Evangelical Christians, the key principals of Excellence, Friendship, Respect, Determination, Courage, Inspiration, and Equality are actually key principals of what we teach and we view ourselves as spiritual descendants of that teaching for thousands of years. It is our ongoing desire to teach and share these and other beliefs with those we meet.

    Olympic Regeneration

    We are in the process of creating a presentation on this website of how the Area now known as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been rejuvenated from derelict and toxic wasteland and industrial areas to the amazingly beautiful and wildlife rich environment experienced today and during the Olympic Games. See a slideshow of the site before the London 2012 Olympic Delivery Authority's work.   more...

    Our Regeneration

    On this website, through literture and at meetings provided by our representatives, we wish to share with others about the spiritual regeneration God has provided in our personal lives and how He can provide this in your life too.

  • Legacy

    Legacy

    Building for the future.

    • Every building has been legacy designed;
    • 457 apprentices have gained experience;
    • 100 Hectares of 'green space' created;
    • 75p in every £1 spent on legacy;

    Olympic Legacy

    The legacy of the Olympics will be seen for 30+ years after the games. The work leading up to the games is just the start of a process of legacy which has already resulted in the building of a new secondary school, medical centre, and what will become 3,500 new homes. Which after the games will be followed by new primary schools, 7,500 new homes, new business centres and other employment prospects.

    Our Legacy

    We want to help build a community and society based on principals such as Excellence, Friendship, Respect, Determination, Courage, Inspiration, and Equality which we believe are clearly taught in the Bible. We want to share a gift of high expense provided to humans freely.
