UK Gospel Partnerships

UK Gospel Partnerships

We consider that good relationships with other like-minded churches and Gospel ministries are an important display of unity. By working together and sharing resources, we aim to help support one another.

  • Our church is affiliated to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC), a group of over 500 local churches in the UK who seek to work together to train new gospel workers, plant new churches and provide pastoral support to existing churches and their leaders.  
  • We are part of the South Central Gospel Partnership which includes evangelical churches of different denominations in the Oxford, Reading, Maidenhead area and also has a focus on training and church planting. Some of our church members attend the Ministry Training Course in Oxford.
  • We work together with local churches in the Thame area to provide the Lighthouse children's holiday club which takes place each year in the summer holidays and attracts around 800 children. We also have a close relationship with Christians in Sport based in Bicester.
  • We are currently supporting a number of local churches through transition periods and also providing preaching support.
  • At LCBC we support partners in 5 areas or streams of mission, as an outworking of our vision to enable gospel work to grow across our nation and the world. Members and regular attendees are encouraged to be linked to one of these streams as we seek to be outward looking. For information about the other 4 streams see our World Mission page.

Stream 4: Reaching people in the UK 

In this stream we support organisations working to share the gospel in the UK through care for individuals, provision of children's summer camps, etc. 

LCBC supports the work of LCM through prayer and giving as it reaches out to people in our capital city. Links have been built through an artist working with the mission and our Spectrum art sessions benefit from these.

LCBC supports the work of Scripture Union in a number of ways.  We send children, leaders and support staff to Scripture Union camps in various locations throughout the UK.  We also recognise the value of Scripture Union Bible notes which many members use.
