Our Story

In 2010 Howard, Naomi, joined by ten great pioneers moved to Cheltenham to plant Godfirst. We began by intentionally sharing life, eating, praying, meeting people. Slowly people were gathered into the new church God was building, drawn to our warm community life and our desire to be disciples of Jesus.

After meeting in Hester’s Way and Pates Grammar, in 2014, we moved to the heart of Cheltenham in the Parabola Arts Centre just 100 yards from The Promenade. In June 2023 Godfirst purchased The Chapel to serve as a base for community life and mission.
