We are a family-friendly, vibrant Christian church based in St Paul's Cray, Orpington, Kent. Our main Sunday service is held at the Link Youth Centre on Midfield Way from 11am-12.30pm.
Drinks are served before and after the meeting, this is a fantastic time for friends and family to catch up.
We run an excellent programme for children during the morning. Follow this link to find out more about our Children's activities.
Anyone is welcome on a Sunday morning, or if you are looking for mid-week activities or meetings have a look here.
