On a Mission

Our Journey & Mission as a Church - Pastor Clive Sharpe
Clive Sharpe 

Hi, my name is Clive Sharpe and my wife's name is Debra. For a few years we sensed that God was calling us to start a new church. A Church that would reflect all that we see in scripture and taught in the New Testament. A Church that you could bring your Christian and non Christian friends to knowing that they would both meet God and have a good time.

Through prophetic words and prayer we believed the place we were to start the Church would be in Angel, Islington.
So in late 2008 we came to live here. At that time there was only 2 of us and it stayed that way for 3 months, we didn't even have anyone to pray with in Angel.  

Then we decided to start an Alpha course In a board room they hired out in the building we were living in at that time. I remember it had a huge oval table in the middle with 16 seats round it and as I stood there two weeks before with still only me and debs i thought "how on earth are we going to fill them all?" Well God was good and by the time we started the course there were 12 of us in all and by the end of the course we had all 16 seats filled.

Following the course we had 12 people that remained so we formed a group that gradually grew to about 18 and at Christmas we decided to start weekly meetings in a room inside Sadler's wells theatre. God was really blessing us as we held more Alpha courses and saw many people give their lives to Christ.

After 1 year there we outgrew the room that we were hiring so decided to move to The Vue Cinema in the N1 centre. We have been there for 1 1/2 years now and have started to fill the screen we are in so are looking at moving into a bigger screen for our Sunday service.

Debra leads our thriving children's work and we currently have 4 mid week groups running. There is also vibrant prayer meeting every sat morning as well as 1/2 night of prayer once a month.

God has been so good to us,we have seen over 30 people give their lives to Christ on our Alpha courses and baptised over 20 of them,many more have given their lives to Christ during our Sunday services.

"The Well" as we are now known continues to grow to the Glory of God as we are seeing people both realise and be released into their God given gifted area of ministry.

We are also beginning to work into the our various  community's with our single mums group and other initiatives like care for ex offenders.

It has been such an amazing time watching The Lord add and grow us together as a wonderful loving family of God. Our mission is to keep making Jesus known in Islington, London, UK and on to the ends of the Earth with church planting a high priority. My challenge to you is to come and be part of the adventure, it has only just begun and exiting times are ahead. I firmly believe there is no greater investment of time than to be a part of a growing vibrant New Testament church plant. You only have one life, this is no dry run!!! Come and join the fun and have the adventure of your life.

The Lord Bless you,
