Who we are

Hello and welcome to Clifton Community Church. We hope that by browsing this website you will get some idea of who we are. We hope to see you sometime – you will be very welcome.


The church started in 1980. During the 60s and 70s in many places, people started meeting in homes in what became known as House Fellowships. The people who met together were committed to seeing God move in their lives in fresh ways. They also enjoyed good fellowship and friendship with each other.

In time many of these groups grew in numbers to the point where they could no longer fit in a room in a house and had to seek larger premises.

This church rented a number of properties until we purchased this building in July 1986. A major building programme took place, which added an extra floor and provided additional rooms.


Most people realise that it is very difficult to put the Christian faith into an exact set of words which everyone is happy with. Over the years Christians have given much thought to writing creeds and Statements of faith. We would agree with this statement of belief at the Evangelical Alliance site (but we would probably want to say more about some things!):
