We are a community who pursue an atmosphere where salvation, healing and people being set free is common place; and where miracles, signs & wonders are very welcome.  We love the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but desire above all else to worship the one who gives them.

Sarah has a real hunger for intimacy with the Holy Spirit and longs to see supernatural break out. She dreams of preaching the gospel to thousands of people and seeing revival in Romford. She brings a prophetic gift to the team as well as her infectious joy!

Ben Cope

Ben is married to Karen and they have 3 children. He has always lived in Romford and now teaches at Immanuel School, having been one of its first pupils when it opened, as Acorn school, in 1980. He is a worship leader and longs to see people of all ages thrive in their relationship with God.

Our CORE Values


We believe that intimacy with God is the starting point for who we are and what we do. We want all that we do be out of a place of deep intimacy with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – wanting to be Spirit led in everything.


This naturally flows from our first core value and we see it as a privilege to be able to worship God freely. We recognise that true worship is a lifestyle and not just about music and creativity.


We love to hear about what God is saying and speak that out whether that be a corporate word or personal prophecy.


As well as the part it plays in both personal and corporate intimacy with the Lord, we believe prayer changes things.


We believe this is foundational to the way we bring through the next generation and developing Godly character.


The way the church is described in Acts 2:42-47 is our model and we want to see relationships, marriages and families flourishing. We believe the biblical truth that everyone has something to contribute is best outworked in community.


We dream and desire to see lives transformed, and everyone impacted by the Gospel. We long to see Jesus in greater measure all the time and everywhere


We have a vision that is bigger than just ourselves, wanting to see the whole church grow and seeing our nation impacted. As part of this, we look to build relationships with other ministries and congregations in the area.
