Church is much more than buildings and Sunday meetings. It’s an everyday community where we belong, where we share the life and the mission of Jesus together in such a way that it overflows to others.

Our desire is that people unfamiliar with the good news of Jesus, will see it lived and spoken by our Godfirst communities, so that they too become followers of Jesus.

At Godfirst we organise our everyday communities around reaching out to the people of Cheltenham with the life of Jesus. Each Godfirst Community is named after it’s missional focus, these may be the people in a geographical area, our workplaces or university or those who share similar passions.

Work Place
Jesus is a big fan of the workplace and the people who work there. And so are we.

Church is not a building you attend. It’s a community where you belong, a family where you know and are known, love and are loved, where you share the life of Jesus together.
