About Us

We are an evangelical church made up of people from very diverse backgrounds, covering six continents (we're missing Antarcticans).


As a church organisation, we are independently financed and we are registered and operated as a charity. We believe that the Bible is God's word, so we study it and try to apply it to all aspects of our lives.  We believe in God the Father, His son Jesus, and in the Holy Spirit and we actively encourage spiritual gifts.  


We work closely with churches in the city, particularly those within the Southampton Christian Network (SCN). We’ve had a strong historic link to the Icthus Christian Fellowship in London, and have adopted the Evangelical Alliance’s statement of faith.

“I'd like to help others to connect with God who comforted me in my suffering.”​

Kid's Ministry

As part of our Sunday get togethers, we normally run a range of kids groups.  In lockdown, we're being creative about how the kids work runs, with separate kids get togethers happening on-line.

It's our goal that the children meet with God to the same extent as the adults.  The programme is diverse and aims to build a caring, nurturing environment where the children can learn and have serious fun.

For more information, contact Heather

Youth Ministries


The Youth (11-16s) meet regularly to do life together - be it supporting each other, enjoying God's presence and asking His perspective in prayer, or working out what the Bible says about relevant issues to teenage life, expressing worship together, socials, cooking, outdoor activities, the list is seemingly endless. The aim of our youth ministry is to encourage our teenagers to relate to Jesus for themselves.   We have a regular week-night youth session, as well as socials and trips through out the term.  If you're interested to find out more, please contact Ellen.  

Linvoy Primus

Every Friday morning, there’s a Men’s Prayer gathering, which currently runs online. This is complemented by a number of one-off events including men’s breakfasts, curry nights and an annual weekend away.


Women's Ministry



Ladies’ fellowship group 'Oasis' meets twice a week.

Beyond this, we run special events, including cheese & wine nights and craft evenings, and a weekend away in the springtime.

Prayer is the essential ingredient in every aspect of church life - in fact, it's a key part of our calling as a church. Our vision is for everyone in our church to be encouraging others and being encouraged themselves.  Getting along to prayer meetings is just a part of this. We run regular weekly and monthly prayer meetings, including early morning sessions, daytime and evening meetings. 


We meet monthly to pray for our friends in China and the church there. We also have prayer meetings for France and for the Congo, where we have strong mission links as a church.

We're also searching out other ways to engage creatively in prayer.  We have recently run a 48 hour prayer room.

Pastoral Support


We aim to support everyone in our church through whatever trials they may be facing.  We will often stand together with people, praying for them, reaching out with practical support when it helps.  We have a network of pastoral helpers who we aim to equip and resource to serve the whole church.


Support networks range from individual discipleship groups, small home groups and the leadership team which regularly meets to pray for the church and any ongoing issues. 


The pastoral support is overseen by Nathan and Miriam



Our faith in Jesus doesn't just relate to us, it's good news for everyone.  Looking around our city, we're very aware that there are lots of us in real need.  The Hazel Project has been established over a number of years in direct response to seeing a need to reflect love, value and respect to people living on our streets.  We support this as a whole church, being motivated to pray, volunteer to help and to support financially.

You can find out more about the Hazel Project here.

Local Community

Local Community

As a church, we are committed to serving our community with the same passion that Jesus did. 


For us, that involves putting on events to engage with those living locally, setting up and running charitable organisations to support specific needs, and supporting other charities working with all kinds of groups in our area.

“Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. Rescue the poor

and helpless…”

(Psalm 82:3-4)

Cafe 153

We live together in community - it's a priviledge to share in the lives of those around us.  Our community cafe exists to serve people by providing a warm, welcoming place to eat and drink and a place to develop friendships and meet others.  


International Community

We support Vision for China, a charity founded by two members of our church family, Cyril and Gabrielle. Originally set up in the 1980s with a view to providing English teachers for educational establishments in China, it has diversified to provide residential care for abandoned children, healthcare, training and rehabilitation for children and young people with special needs.

OneHeart is a ministry of King's Church, set up to support people in the East of the Democratic Republic of Congo.  

We are partnering with the ASDIG charity, supporting them as they outwork their passion and vision for the poor in Goma. This in the context of a country that was the poorest in the world with a GDP of $394 per year (75p a day) between 2009 and 2013.

The ASDIG projects focus on women and children, running 2 schools, a tailoring school which has provided more than a thousand women to date. Agricultural and micro finance projects also empower women towards independence.

A team from King's has visited Goma and we regularly welcome our friends from Congo to the UK.

We have been supporting Cyril and Gabrielle in their work in Ireland for some years.  We have a developing relationship with churches on the West Coast, particularly in Listowel.  We have sent teams for short trips to support the work there, and have enjoyed visits from the churches to us in Southampton.   

CCD Thailand


King’s Church supports The Christian Care Foundation for Children with Disabilities (CCD) in Thailand.


CCD provides care and support to children with disabilities and their families, seeking to demonstrate Jesus' love by helping disabled children achieve their highest potential and become fully integrated into mainstream society. They run Rainbow House, a residential home for up to 40 children, two independent living homes for older boys, and Day-care Centres in Pakkred, a suburb of Bangkok. They also have community-based rehabilitation projects in three provinces.

Teresa and Jan from King’s Church joined others from Ichthus in visiting CCD and Rainbow Church, and we continue to regularly support the work and actively partner in prayer.

Friends International


We support Friends International (, a Christian charity that reaches out to international students in the UK. Over 6,500 international students from more than 135 countries choose to study at the University of Southampton each year. The aim is to give as many as of these students a great time in the UK, chances to experience real British culture and opportunities to hear about the Christian faith. This is done through engaging with international students in a wide range of activities and events including the iexplore course which provides an introduction to the Christian faith.

Ellen and Graham are church representatives for King's and Jan W is on the Board of Trustees. Ellen, Graham and Jan W including others from time to time help out with the iexplore course and other activities when they can.
