El Shaddai Christian Church at its core is built around cells – groups of usually about 8 to 12 of us who meet together regularly in each other’s homes and function as a spiritual family to each other. We believe that true discipleship and spiritual maturing happen in small groups – from 2 or 3 of us fathering, mentoring or evangelising each other at an individual level to coming together as “family” in cell groups each week. Therefore, being part of a cell group really is essential to being part of the life of our church. If you’re keen, give the church office a call or email – or find out more at the Info Desk at Sunday’s Service. We’ll make sure we find the most suitable and appropriate “fit” of cell group for you and link you with a welcoming cell group leader to make it easy for you to join in.

Time. Together. in Touch.
We are all in many different types of relationships with the family, community, colleagues, neighbours, friends, mentors & mentees around us. Relationships are at the core of how God’s Kingdom finds expression here on earth! But it is difficult to keep up with them all, especially in our stretched modern lives & schedules. If it’s not in your diary, it often just doesn’t happen.
So why not intentionally make every Thursday a “ConnecThursday” in your diary. Simply don’t let a Thursday pass without setting up an intentional time with one of the important relationships in your life. Meet over lunch, invite a neighbour for supper, have coffee with your DNA partner or spiritual parent, go cycling with a work colleague, schedule a family meeting. There are just so many ways to intentionally CONNECT with 1 or 2 or 3 people each Thursday.
We can do more together than we can do apart! That’s why we get together corporately at least every Sunday for regular worship and 5-fold ministry equipping for our Kingdom calling as a church. This is what enables us to be an effective “army” in addition to being “family” together. So be sure to join us at 9am on Sunday mornings. Our Children’s Church Ministry takes place at the same time (see below). Contact the church office for more info.
We truly believe our children also need to be living genuine & impactful Kingdom lives. Our children’s ministries are in full force on Sunday mornings - here’s how your child can link in:
Crèche – for children from 18 months to 3 years of age – is available after the praise & worship – ask at the Info Desk on Sunday morning for directions.
