Find out more about Euston Church by reading our latest newsletter (September 2017).
Euston Church was born in September 2010 when around 40 people were planted from St Helen’s, Bishopsgate, with a vision to be labourers for Jesus in this exciting harvest field.
We began meeting in the School of Pharmacy, before moving to the Institute of Education in 2012. We have experienced so many answers to prayer as the Lord has provided every detail and resource we have needed as we seek to serve him.
In the kindness of God, Euston Church has gradually grown. We have seen students, workers, and families come to new life in Jesus, grow in faith in him, and equipped to serve.
In 2015, the trustees of Christ the King, Gordon Square offered the use of their building for Euston Church. This is an amazing provision of a much more public and regular space for the ministry. We long to see the name of Jesus go out from this place to change lives and eternities in London and around the world.
To God be the glory!
St Helen’s Bishopsgate
As one of a number of churches planted from St Helen’s over the last 20 years, we share their core convictions about the supremecy of the scriptures and their desire to reach, build and send people out to the glory of God.
Euston Church operates under a Bishop’s Mission Order which was granted by the Bishop of London in January 2015. We are excited to be ambassadors commissioned as part of Capital Vision 2020.
London City Mission
We are thrilled to be partnering with our friends from LCM on a council estate just north of Kings Cross. Members of Euston Church volunteer to help run a mums and tots group, youth clubs and ministry amongst the elderly - because London needs Jesus.
We uphold the teaching of the three creeds, the articles of religion of the Church of England and the Book of Common Prayer.
We believe the Biblical gospel, and in particular our ministry is driven by the following core convictions:
- Jesus Christ lived, died and rose in history in accordance with the Scriptures; he reigns with the Father and one day will return in glory;
- Jesus has commanded that his awesome gospel of repentance and forgiveness of sins must be proclaimed, and disciples made, in every corner of the planet;
- Jesus’ kingdom is built through the ministries of the word and prayer in the context of local church families living lives of worship and love;
- By the power of his Spirit, all of God’s people have a vital part to play in growing the body of Christ.
