From Easter Sunday 2018 Community Church Rochford and Ashingdon United Free Church will be coming together permanently as one congregation with AUFC becoming part of CCR.
The CCR leadership team will remain unchanged. Malcolm Jones is stepping down from his leadership role but will, in time, look for a new role within CCR. The combined church will continue to meet at King Edmund School on Sundays as the Ashingdon building is not big enough to accommodate us. The Ashingdon building will be used for smaller meetings of the church and we will be exploring what other opportunities the building may provide moving forward.
This is a big change and a bold move but it’s also a great opportunity and there is certainly an excitement about what God is doing. Having started this conversation some months ago we have recognised that it’s best to make the change sooner rather than later. There is also a lot of detail to sort out with this kind of change which will take some time.
We are praying, for all the people involved, that this would be a uniting of heart and vision which leads to great blessing (Psalm 133).
