It’s all change in Kent Thameside and in particular, Ebbsfleet! The swathe of land sandwiched between the River Thames and the A2 trunk-road running between London and Dover is one of Europe’s largest regeneration projects.
With the Bluewater shopping centre and the new Ebbsfleet International rail station (offering both a direct service to the continent and a high-speed link to the capital) the area is receiving a huge boost. Not only this, but many new businesses are moving into Ebbsfleet, there will also be new schools, community facilities, new parks and all serving the 15,000 homes to be built. Plans for a world-class theme park in the area are also part of this huge vision.
All of this brings tremendous opportunities to Christians who are keen to see relevant and lively expressions of church birthed as these new developments emerge. The call of God to the Christians and churches already in the area is to prepare in advance for the huge influx of people, and help them as they settle in to have the opportunity to discover who Jesus is and what He can do for them.
Ebbsfleet Baptist Church is here to be a Christian presence in the new ‘Ebbsfleet Garden City’. We are here to love and serve the thousands of new residents who will move into this area.
We’d love you to be part of this!
Rev Penny Marsh
Due to the current situation, we are changing the way that we meet. We will not be holding any of our weekly gatherings at the moment, this includes Sunday Active, our weekly coffee morning sessions, the couch to 5km group and the weekly HiiT.
We are however, moving some of these online. Check out our FaceBook group ‘Sunday Active – Ebbsfleet’ each Sunday morning for some online tips for staying healthy, and a short talk on spiritual health.
We know there are many people who are fearful and anxious in the light of the recent pandemic. Some in our community will be self-isolating, others feel isolated already. Some will have plenty of support, others will have no support, while some will be trying their best to support others.
Please get in touch if you would like prayer, a chat on the phone, or need assistance. We want to be here for our community as far as we are able and know that many other organisations and churches feel the same.
It doesn’t matter to us whether you are a Christian or not, whether you have ever been to Sunday Active or what your background is… we are here for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or message us via our Facebook page ‘Sunday Active – Ebbsfleet’ and we will get in touch.
