The Jesus Fellowship Church aims to be a contemporary expression of the historic Christian faith. All kinds of people are involved: young and old, rich and poor.
We’re a UK-based evangelical Christian church with a charismatic emphasis and Baptist roots. We are orthodox in doctrine and accept the historic Christian creeds. The Jesus Fellowship Church started off as Bugbrooke Baptist Chapel in Northamptonshire, UK, when our pastor at the time, Noel Stanton (1926-2009), led the church to embrace the charismatic movement.
You’ll find our details listed in the UK Christian Handbook and the English Church Census. We’re also a member of the Evangelical Alliance UK.
Details of the church are listed in the UK Christian Handbook and the English Church Census. We’re linked with other churches and groups in the UK and overseas through the Multiply Christian Network, and we’re also a member of the Evangelical Alliance UK.
We are particularly active with many in need, including homeless people and refugees. We aim to show Christian compassion and love, helping people to find hope and giving them back their dignity. The help given is normally conducted alongside various caring professions, and with their input.
In connection with this social outreach work, we have opened Jesus Centres in seven towns and cities (Birmingham, Coventry, Kettering, Leicester, London, Northampton and Sheffield) and founded a charity (Jesus Army Charitable Trust). The Jesus Fellowship numbers around 2000, nearly 400 of whom live in New Creation Christian Community houses around the UK.
The core units of the church are the local congregations and house groups, with a range of larger events taking place regularly, open to all who are interested.
We meet together in lots of cities and towns around the UK, including Brighton, Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, London, Oxford and Sheffield. If you’d like to find out a bit more about us, you can find the nearest Jesus Fellowship Church to you.
