We are a community of worshippers in Norwich, UK.
We exist to ignite individual hearts until Heaven meets Earth. We gather to encounter God’s presence, where personal revival starts and we become the people we were created to be.
Holly was born and raised in Norfolk and loves the city of Norwich. Her passion is to see people set free to be the people God created them to be. She is a mother of two beautiful girls, Olivia and Beatrice, and has a passion for them and all of Gods children to know God intimately and be confident in who God says they are. Holly completed Bethel's Leadership Development Programme in 2014 and is part of Bethel's Leadership Network
Dave moved to Norwich in 2001, met a Norfolk girl and has been here ever since! He works as a management consultant and is passionate about breaking down the sacred / secular divide. Life for Dave and Holly changed dramatically in 2012 when Dave ended up paralysed due to a rare illness. The prognosis was very bad, but after a few people prayed for Dave he walked out of the hospital the next day. This changed everything and since that time Holly and Dave have both been on a journey of discovery of what more God has in store.
Dave also completed Bethel's Leadership Development Programme, a member of Bethel's Leadership Network, is passionate about sports and loves nothing better than throwing balls around in the garden with his daughters!
We are a church that exists to see the love and power of Jesus impact and transform all aspects of society as believers shine with the glory that is in them and see the impossible take place. Our vision is to:
Be a presence centred worshipping community that gives a high value to excellence.
Make big people: Rather than run ‘church programmes’ our vision is to focus on getting people healed up and understand God’s purpose for their lives. We look to empower people to discover their God given vision and then equip and resource them to see that come into existence.
Nurture ‘big kids’ who are honoured and empowered as today’s church as well as being trained for tomorrow.
Embrace mission that shares the love and power of Jesus.
Be a resource centre that equips and supports the body of Christ to see the Kingdom of Heaven advance regionally and across Europe.
We are committed to seeing radical faith and passion for Jesus in the whole family. For husbands and wives to model the relationship between Christ and the church, and for children to be set apart for a life of eternal purpose. We believe church is family and family is heaven’s plan for this earth.
We are a generous house who reflect the abundant nature of God through our generosity.
The Word of God
We are committed to searching out and growing in understanding of the scriptures and applying them every day to our lives.
Intimacy with Jesus
Intimacy with Jesus is our pursuit and greatest reward. It is the one thing that inspires us in everything we do. From this place of intimacy we hear from God, see as He sees and invite Him to have his way in us and in situations and people we encounter.
Signs, Wonders and Miracles
We don’t just hope for miracles, but expect the supernatural as part of the normal, everyday Christian life.
Worship and Prayer
We are committed to creating a culture of worship through consistent rhythms of praise, worship and prayer that does not cease day or night.
The Advancement of the Kingdom of Heaven
We constantly look to advance the Kingdom of Heaven through the proclamation of the gospel in all walks of life and through the development of disciples.
We are committed to empowering all people to be everything God has created them to be.
Hope and Joy
We have a good Father who wants the best for us. This means our lives are characterised by the joyful expectation of good, having fun and living in freedom.
Christ is in each of us and Christ is best represented by us when we are true to who He has made us to be and uniquely shine with His glory. To live a life of meaning and power doesn’t require a ‘Christian language’ or a set of ‘Christian behaviours’. Being who you are best represents Christ to the world.
Council of Reference
We don’t belong to any denomination and work to see all of the streams of the Kingdom of God flow as one river. The leaders are part of Bethel’s Leadership Network and are positioned under Bethel for spiritual covering. We are also commissioned by and held accountable to a Council of Reference consisting of wise fathers and mothers.
