We are aware that this is a distressing time for many and we are keen to be of support to anyone who needs it. Do get in touch with us via our About Us page if you need our help.
We are a newly established evangelical church in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, affiliated to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) as a recognised church plant. We started meeting weekly in October 2018.
We come from a variety of church backgrounds, but are united by a desire to bring the good news of Jesus Christ through a church in the heart of our community. We welcome everyone.
We are now meeting online every week. The latest sermon is available below by clicking the picture link:
If you would like to join us, details of how to do this are available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org.
We started in 2017 when some members of Myton Church in Warwick and Emmanuel Church in Leamington came together with a vision to start a new church in Kenilworth. Our vision was to establish a church that was based on faithful Biblical teaching along with a heart to reach out to our community.
We began meeting to pray in March 2017 and soon formed a core leadership team. We decided to trial running monthly Sunday afternoon services in September 2017 and to our amazement over 40 people came along!
By November 2017, we decided to recruit a full-time pastor and by July 2018 we had recruited Marco Uliana as our full time pastor. Marco joined us with his family in November 2018.
By that point in time we had started meeting on a weekly basis at the Kenilworth Centre with effect from 7th October 2018. Marco's first main task was to prepare us to become an independent church and he worked on this through the first half of 2019. We were registered as a Charitiable Incorporated Organisation on 22nd May 2019. On 5th June 2019 we held our first members' meeting and called our first elders and deacons. Upon that evening there were two talks (which you can listen to by clicking on the relevant buttons):
1. Jonathan Wright describing the History of Kenilworth Community Church
2. Bill Patterson (from Emmanuel Church) issuing a charge to the new elders.
We are currently a recognised "church plant" of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC). We have adopted their model doctrinal basis which can be found here:
We are led by a team of elders details of which can be found on our Leadership page.
We welcome everyone, whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not. We are committed to serving our community spiritually through the advancement of the teachings of the Christian Faith and through practical service, including helping those in material need such as through Foodbanks.
If you would like to get in touch then please email our pastor Marco Uliana (email@example.com) or chair of trustees Jonathan Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We meet at Abbey Hill Church, Abbey Hill, Kenilworth CV8 1LW. Directions can be found here.
It is a wonderful nineteenth century church and is situated at the top of Abbey Fields Park.
We meet at 4:30pm every Sunday.
We also meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 8pm to pray.
We have childrens' groups during the service from babies to age 14 (Year 9).
Please do visit us- we are a small church and you will be made to feel really welcome!
