About us

Knowing God's love, Growing in the Holy Spirit and Going in Christ's name.

Our hearts' desire is to build a Church that cultivates a ‘Kingdom culture’ in line with what the Bible teaches.  We desire to be a community that will impact our local community.

We are really privileged to have an amazing leadership team.

As a Church we have a vision that shapes what we do:

Knowing God's love, Growing in the Holy Spirit and Going in Christ's name.

We believe that God loves everyone and wants us all to personally know His love for each of us. He gives us His Holy Spirit to help us live in a way that shows that love. And He asks us to go out in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, to share the good news that we can be forgiven for all of our mistakes and be reunited with God.


At Panshanger Church, we try to live in this way, building a church in line with what Jesus taught, recorded in the Bible. We strive to be a community that makes a difference in our local community by sharing God's love for all.
