About Us

We are a lively, friendly community church of over 200 adults and young people from diverse backgrounds and about 20 different nationalities. The early roots of King’s Church date back to 1936. We are part of Commission, an international family of churches working together to see thousands of lives transformed through hundreds of churches in tens of nations.

In terms of church ‘type’ we can be described as Evangelical in our theology and charismatic in our approach to ministry. We believe in salvation through Jesus Christ, and we believe in the power of God’s faultless word which is revealed to us through the Bible and through the Holy Spirit.

We accept that we are all an imperfect people, capable of being made perfect only in Christ. We are therefore a community that is real and excited about doing life to the full in Jesus. Our mission is that everyone is built up, supported and enabled to flourish and to shine God’s goodness into the world

We wholeheartedly welcoming everyone, irrespective of their history or backgrounds

Our Vision

We are a people who love and obey Jesus. We are committed to sharing His love with others and reproducing more people who love and obey Jesus.

We are committed to sharing the good news that everyone can enjoy the abundant life that Jesus gives. We are building a community family church that is always local in relevance, yet global in outreach. Our commitment to world mission is outworked by sending and supporting missionaries around the world.

What We Believe

We believe in salvation through Jesus Christ, and we believe in the power of God’s faultless word which is revealed to us through the Bible and through the Holy Spirit. Our point by point key theological beliefs are well summarised by the Evangelical Alliance. Our key values are as follows:



UPHOLDING THE BIBLE AS GOD’S WORD TO US.

We uphold the Bible as God’s word, using it as inspiration and authority in teaching, training and discipleship. Led by the Holy Spirit We prayerfully seek and depend on the power and direction of the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives.



SHARING THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS

We seek to individually and collaboratively share with everybody the good news of forgiveness and new life given by trusting Jesus.



HUNGRY FOR GOD’S PRESENCE

We enthusiastically seek God’s presence through prophetic, culturally relevant and real worship. We are all free to use spiritual gifts and participate in ‘body ministry’.



LOVING AND INCLUSIVE FAMILY

We love and encourage one another and embrace all ages and cultures. We seek to develop a welcoming and supportive community, in which we can grow and share together as part of God’s family.



EQUIPPING AND RELEASING GOD’S SERVANTS IN USING THEIR GIFTS

We encourage, equip and enable all individuals to become disciples of Jesus Christ within the church and in the wider community, as well as releasing and training those called for trans-local service.



Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday, doing a life of purpose

Our History

The Kings Church Epsom (KCE) was formed in January 1992 from an amalgamation of two churches: Epsom Evangelical Church with roots in Prayer and Bible study going back to 1936; and Fellowship of the Kings with roots in healing going back to the early 1970’s. Since its formation, KCE has experienced a period of stability and has benefitted significantly from the commitment and generosity of its members which has enabled the funding of many commendable works locally and internationally and the development of major building facilities. The church has also successfully established itself as a truly multi-racial, family church with a congregation of over 20 nationalities from around the world.

 

In December 2011, Doug Croucher the long-serving Senior Pastor, retired after 24 years of leading the church. A new Team leadership structure of 4 Elders, supported by specific ministries and key staff, was introduced with Segun Oladokun as the leader of the Eldership Team. In April 2017, Segun was welcomed into the role of full-time lead Elder.

 

In same April 2017, the church was formally received into the Commission church family, a fast-growing, bible-inspired group of around 50 churches that relate to Guy Miller who has a real heart and gifting for church growth and international missions in fulfilment of the Great Commission from Jesus Christ. Through Commission, KCE enjoys the partnership of a wider network of Christians with similar vision, and the benefit of mutual support and encouragement.

built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
