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
