Celebrating Community - Loving lives - Empowering Change

Welcome to our website!

You are very welcome to join us in worship at 10.30 am on a Sunday. You can't miss our huge brick building on Barking Road, opposite Plaistow Police Station, but the entrance is tucked away on the right hand side. See news on what we're doing in our latest church magazine.

Tuesday is a good day to drop into the church building. The WAF CAF is open from 11 am - 2 pm in the big hall at the front serving a hot, home-cooked lunch. And for older people the Active Tuesdays club in the Welcome Centre helps keep mind and body active with crafts, gardening, Tai Chi, outings and more. 

Roll up, roll up! Bring yourself, your mum, dad, neighbour and dog to the best quiz night of 2017!

Saturday 15th April - 6.00pm

Enter as a team (up to 8 people) or we can put you in a team, just let us know! Please RSVP or contact Rosie or Georgina Clift directly if you would like to come, and it would be helpful to know if you will be eating so we have an estimate of numbers. All in aid of the Swift Summer Camp 2017, a truly worthy cause.


Plaistow South Arts Hub - daytime and evening sessions

Continuing  in the Memorial Community Church building - free drop-in art sessions run by our friends at Rosetta Art Centre. There are day and evening sessions, thanks to funding from the Postcode Community Trust as well a PSBL, so do come after work for some creativity and relaxation!
