We exist so that people will encounter the LOVE of God, learn to LIVE more like Jesus and GO in the power of the Holy Spirit to see lives and communities transformed. Our story so far is one of God's faithfulness. In 2014 St Swithin's was identified by the Diocese as a potential location for a city centre resourcing church and, at the invitation of the Bishop of Lincoln, a team from Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) in London were invited to plant into St Swithin's. Looking ahead we have exciting plans for growth and for church planting. Our vision for the next stage is : To Reach those in the city and surrounding areas with the message of the gospel, in particular the Rising Generations. To Release disciple making disciples. To Revitalise the city and region with a series of church plants This will be underpinned by our values of authentic community, costly generosity, creativity and quality.
