What kind of church are you?

We are a Christian church in south London. We are Evangelical and charistmatic. We believe the Bible is relevant today and are part of the Evangelical Alliance.

Who's there?

We are an active congregation, and a varied bunch! You can expect to meet people from a variety of different countries and every walk of life.

What shall I wear?

There is no dress code, so we encourage you to come as you are! If it helps, most of us are usually pretty casual.

What is your style?

We try to keep our services quite informal, using a mix of traditional and modern music. And we like to add a sprinkling of humour here and there!

Can I bring the children?

Absolutely. We welcome families and regularly have children join us. There are groups for different ages, but otherwise feel free to keep them with you in the service.

Phil Canning

Together with Harry, Phil has been part of CPCC for 25 years. In 2009 they moved into leadership roles. Phil is passionate about good mental health, and provides bereavement support for children through a local charity. She enjoys the theatre and is partial to Indian food.
