OUR HISTORY

Prayer Group

THE FELLOWSHIP BEGAN IN 1972 AS A CHURCH PLANT FROM A CHURCH IN DUDLEY ON THE CRESTWOOD PARK ESTATE, WITH A GROUP OF BELIEVERS WHO MET ON SUNDAY MORNINGS AT THE CRESTWOOD PARK SCHOOL AND IN HOME GROUPS FOR THE EVENINGS. THIS WAS THE START OF THE CRESTWOOD COMMUNITY FELLOWSHIP.

AFTER 4 YEARS OF GROWTH, THE FELLOWSHIP THEN RELOCATED IN 1978 INTO THE CENTRE OF KINGSWINFORD AND MET IN A CONVERTED COACH HOUSE CALLED 'WAYSIDE'. THIS SERVED AS A CHURCH FOR THE BELIEVERS WHO GATHERED TOGETHER FOR 12 YEARS. IN THE LATE 1980'S, IT BECAME EVIDENT THAT THE WAYSIDE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP NEEDED A NEW PURPOSE BUILT CENTRE.

IN 1988, OUR NEW PURPOSE BUILT CENTRE WAS COMPLETED, AND THE FELLOWSHIP MOVED ONCE AGAIN INTO OUR NEW 'EARTHLY' HOME, KINGSWINFORD CHRISTIAN CENTRE. WE BECAME KINGSWINFORD CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP.
