Who are we and what do we do?
Community Church Deal was started as a church plant from The Ark in Dover in 2006. It is part of a worldwide denomination of Apostolic churches with its roots in the Welsh revival of 1904 and was brought to this part of Kent in the heyday of mining. There are still some families within the church today who can trace their roots in this area back to that heritage.
We are an active, Bible-centred family-friendly church, serving the area in which we live in Deal. Our congregation come from all kinds of backgrounds, drawn by our desire to worship God and put the Bible into practice in our daily lives. Our style is relaxed, contemporary and real: It’s a place where everyone can feel welcomed, loved and cared for.
Community Church Deal is for life, not just for Sundays! On most days of the week, those who meet here are involved in areas of life and service, both in and outside of our building. There are a number of opportunities for meeting up in smaller groups around and about the town, for Bible study, prayer and practical encouragement.
The church is active in the community with our own initiatives, such as our Cafe Connect drop in centre, where anyone is welcome to drop in and have a coffee, homemade cake and a chat. Then there is Leaps and Bounds, a community project for adults with physical and educational needs, which has been running since 2010.
We also work alongside partner organisations such as Deal Area Food Bank, and more recently Street Connect. Street Connect helps disadvantaged and marginalised individuals, particularly men and women who are dealing with drug and alcohol addictions, mental health problems and other life-controlling issues.
There are many ways to connect with us: Sunday services, Tiny Toes parent and toddler group (0-4 years) on Mondays, Cafe Connect every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays, Youth on Fridays, plus other small groups during the week. We would love you to join us for any of these, just come along and say hello.
We are always looking for people to come and help us with our
community projects, on our technical team and
in various other ways.
