How we began:
"From Crestwood Community Fellowship to Wayside Christian Fellowship to Kingswinford Christian Fellowship to Kingswinford Christian Centre..."
The fellowship began in 1972 as a Church plant from a Church in Dudley, on the
Crestwood Park Estate with a group of believers who met on Sunday mornings at
the Crestwood Park School, and in home groups for the
evenings. This was the start of the Crestwood Community Fellowship.
After 4 years of
growth the fellowship then relocated in 1976 into the centre of Kingswinford and met in a converted Coach House attached to a house called, "Wayside". This served as a Church for the believers who gathered together for 12
years. In the late 1980's it became evident that the Wayside Christian Fellowship needed a new
purpose built centre.
In 1988 our new purpose built centre was completed, and the fellowship moved once again into our new 'earthly' home, Kingswinford Christian Centre. We became Kingswinford Christian Fellowship - the name by which we continue to be known by.
We have seen many people pass through its doors since that time, seeking God, exploring answers to life, needing help, direction and hope - or a place to belong, a place to worship God, hear His word and experience the life changing power of His Holy Spirit. Many have gone on to new things in the Lord and others moved to distant shores. We have a congregation covering all generations - and can often boast
an truly international flavour with people coming from
Zimbabwe, Brazil, Albania, Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Pakistan...
Why not visit and experience a welcome, message and
God you will never forget!
