Welcome to Jesus House London, a parish of
the Redeemed Christian Church of God and a member of the Evangelical Alliance. We are
a congregation of approximately 3000 people, who worship physically with us here at Brent
Cross but also online. Our mission is to help people to pursue an
intimate relationship with God, to discover their purpose in Him, thereby maximizing their
potential and, consequently, impacting the lives of people in our community. The building itself is an old office building,
but we have made much investment and adaption to make it really work for our community. We are based just underneath the North Circular,
making it a good location for people to travel to from London and further afield. We have made great progress to develop a church
in North West London, where thousands of people come from far and wide to worship together
every week. The front foyer space is usually very busy
on Sundays, as people often gather together at the café, which is a great spot for meeting
new people. We run three family services each Sunday,
one being a French-speaking service, in addition to services for our children and youth. Our services are held in our main hall, which
seats up to 1600 guests and is usually at least two-thirds full during each Sunday service
– and on special events like Easter or Thanksgiving services, then the room becomes full to the
brim. In fact, we are looking into building a purpose-built
facility which could hold up to 5000 people, such is the demand from people wanting to
visit us to worship. The service usually begins with an opening
prayer led by a member of the congregation. This leads into a time of continuous praise
and worship. The congregation is led by the choir, through
one song after another, in worship to God. This then flows into ‘The Word’, which
is the sermon portion of the service. This is taken by one of our pastors or a visiting
pastor, incorporating a Bible study with anecdotes and real life experiences. People can also access teaching through our
internet radio station and online video stream via YouTube. We are committed to practical Christianity,
so that whether locally or internationally, we try to ease the burdens of those less fortunate
than ourselves. This is done under the umbrella of our Church
Social Responsibility arm, through various initiatives including The Christmas Lunch
and Jesus, work we do with CAP (Christians Against Poverty), and Compassion UK. Amongst some of our international missions
include medical missions abroad, work with Samaritan’s Purse in Liberia, and also with
the Good Shepherd’s Home and Orphanage in India.
