The East end of London had been without a congregation for many years, and previous attempts to plant one unfortunately were not met with any measure of success. In October 2002 an Evangelist named Malcolm Armstrong dedicated himself to starting a congregation in the Stratford area. A small group of saints from other London churches joined with him and held meetings on Sunday evenings and the church started its work for the Lord.
The Church in history and scripture
The church at Stratford has a membership that is diverse and multicultural in it's makeup. The congregation has an average weekly attendance of 75. We are committed to obeying the word of God as revealed in the scriptures, fellowship loving one another and sharing the good news about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Founded by Christ
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Headquarters in heaven
Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Established on the day of Pentecost
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Established in Jerusalem
Acts 1, 2
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
