Who we are
Kingsbrook Community Church is a group of people living in and around Kingsbrook who are learning to follow Jesus with their lives. We want to play our part in seeing Kingsbrook continue to grow and flourish; and show, tell and experience the sacrificial love demonstrated in the life of Jesus.
KCC is part of the Broughton Family of Churches and the Church of England. In 2017, James was appointed as vicar of Kingsbrook, working with Broughton Church as the new community continues to develop and grow. A year later, a small group from Broughton joined together and began meeting in houses in Kingsbrook and now we’re gathering in the community centre in Oakfield Village.
Sundays might look a little different to what you’re expecting when you think of church.
Part of the time is given over to creating spaces for the community to connect and then the church meet around tables to share some food and some stories.
Meet the vicar...
I’m the vicar for Kingsbrook and head up Kingsbrook Community Church. Previously I’ve worked as an Army officer, a climbing instructor and teaching assistant. But a nagging feeling wouldn’t go away and in 2011, I started training to be a vicar and honestly can’t imagine doing anything else now.
Since having children my interests have changed from playing team sports to watching them and I’ve discovered caffeinated drinks in a big way. My family and I have been living in Kingsbrook since 2017.
