Our Story

We are an informal family-friendly Church of England church where you will find people of all ages and stages. Everyone is welcome! We hope you might be able to join us on the exciting journey we are on.

It begins in late 2014 when, at the invitation of the Bishop of Kensington and with the support of local churches, a small group from St Peter's Fulham joined by other friends and supporters in the Teddington area, were asked to re-establish a church community in the previously redundant building of St Michael's Fulwell.

We launched regular Sunday morning services in January 2015 with an evening service starting in the autumn. In the midst of it all we have refurbished the side-chapel and some side-rooms where almost all our services and activities currently take place. In the coming months and years we will set about the not inconsiderable but exciting task of revitalising the rest of the building.

But good though it is to be able to bring a building back to life, our greatest desire is to to rebuild a gospel centred community for Fulwell, Teddington and beyond. To that end we have greatly benefitted from being a part of both the Diocese of London and the Co-Mission Initiative (a church-planting movement largely based in south west London).
