The Kings Church has supported the ministry of Miro Fic and his family for many years.
Born in Slovakia, Miro is based in Silbas in Serbia where he has established Syloam International Ministries. At the heart of this ministry is a vision to serve the Balkans with the Good News of the gospel, and to see revival through the nations.
Having studied in the Czech Republic and serving in a church in Humenne, Slovakia, God called Miro in 2003 to move to Serbia. Together with his Serbian wife, Snezana, they started a church and have developed a ministry across the Balkan nations. This ministry has grown and is focussed around three main areas of activity:
Miro has been powerfully used in evangelistic and healing ministry, and is developing apostolically in serving the churches. 2018 saw the start of a training course for Leaders in the Balkans, with over 40 attending. This is being run in conjunction with Commission, the group of churches which we are part of in
Ademola & Bilhah are cross-cultural missionaries in Mozambique. They serve with Calvary Ministries (CAPRO). They lead a team of national workers together with whom they are engaged in: Disciple-making, Leadership Training & Development, Mobilization for mission & cross-cultural church planting.
Their ministry activities have resulted in strengthening many local churches, equipping many for ministry, making many disciples & planting of many churches. They have generations of disciples in towns & rural areas including: Chimoio, Nampula, Pemba, Moma etc.
For the next 2-3 years they are intentionally pursuing a project of envisioning, recruiting, equipping & releasing hundreds of local believers to engage and make disciples among the remaining unreached peoples groups of northern Mozambique.
They have been adopted by the King’s Church Epsom. Please remember them and their four boys, their team and their different ministry activities in your prayers to God.
5000Plus is a UK charity responding to the needs of poor people by empowering them to increase their income through starting and successfully running livelihood projects. The charity works with communities and organisations in some of the poorest areas in the world. The vision for this charity is drawn from the example of Jesus and His disciples who, starting with 5 loaves and 2 fishes belonging to a small boy, miraculously fed a great crowd of people as described in the Biblical Gospel of Mark 6:35-44.
5000Plus was founded by Rob and Jane Garratt in 1998. Challenged by the poverty they saw while travelling in Nepal, they asked God what could be done. Back came the response “the answer starts with what the people have, not with what they don’t have”. Today, Rob & Jane are fully engaged in conjunction with associates and local partners, travelling remote parts of Africa, Asia and the Middle East, envisioning, teaching and training communities to break out of their cycle of poverty.
We are proud as King’s church, to support this work.

Andy & Jodi Gray pastor CityHill London. The church was started in February 2013 with just Jodi and Andy, a hope and a prayer as members! Today CityHill is about 40 members strong and averaging around 20 worshippers a week. CityHill’s services are 50 minutes short, specifically designed with Millennials in mind as they are one of the missing generations in church today. Please pray for the Grays’ and that CityHill achieves its goal of growing to 100 members in 2018.
Andy and Jodi were married at Kings Church, where Jodi’s mother Hillary still worships, many moons ago. They are blessed with 2 beautiful daughters.
The meeting Room is a social rehabilitation initiative ran by a local organisation; it is hosted and supported by the King’s church. Below are the objectives and operations of the initiative as explained by the organizers:
The Meeting Room runs daytime drop in centres for homeless, socially isolated, and vulnerable people living within our community. We offer them a warm, safe and friendly environment where they are made to feel welcome and have a chance to eat, relax and socialise. A hot nourishing mid-day meal sustains the body, while talking, playing games and other activities help to break through isolation. By listening to our clients and gaining their trust, we help them by signposting them to agencies or professional bodies for help or provide further assistance ourselves through our regular volunteers. We also have a qualified Counsellor who can offer support to those in the greatest need as well as regular workshops to help develop confidence and self esteem. Results don’t always happen overnight, or sometimes at all, but our goal is to continue being there to offer support and friendship. The Meeting Room has been meeting at Kings Church every Thursday for the past two years with volunteers and support being offered from members of the Kings Church congregation.
