KingsHeart is one of many churches in the London Borough of Havering - all part of God’s wider church.
We have close links with a number of churches and ministries in our area and regularly meet under the Across Havering initiative. KingsHeart is a member of Churches in Community International, and part of the Global Legacy network.
Churches in community International
Global Legacy is a relational network that connects, encourages, and equips revival leaders worldwide.
We expand God’s kingdom by helping to build relationships between revival leaders, ministries, and organizations around the globe, and to equip them to transform their spheres of influence.
We were founded in 1983 at a time when a large number of believers wanted to experience church as it was described in the Bible. This included powerful experiences of God and the supernatural. Often it was impossible to achieve this in the churches they were in, so they left and formed new churches, like ours.
At first they met in people's homes but as they grew they moved to hired halls and later acquired buildings of their own as we have. Originally called Emmanuel Fellowship, we were more widely known as Romford Community Church meeting for several years in Gidea Park Primary School. We have been meeting in Rise Park since the summer of 2005.
More recently, we've changed our name to KingsHeart Church - feeling that this truly reflects our values, uniqueness and God's heart of love for all.
KingsHeart Church is run by a group of 7 leaders who collectively manage the church, teach & encourage its members and much more!
Our leadership team is:
- Brian Smith
- Stephen Kitchen
- Lis Williams
- Remi Okeshola
- Emma Mathews
- Sam Haley
- Matt Carter
KingsHeart church is actively engaged with a number of ministries around the world including in Latvia, India, Myanmar and Romania.
We, and they, value these personal connections and we support these communities through both regular visits and through providing financial support and teaching.
