About Equippers Church

Equippers Church exists to equip people for life through faith in Jesus Christ. We are all about equipping and championing people to extend the Kingdom in their world, whether that be education, healthcare, media, business, family or the church. 

We are part of a global movement of Equippers churches. These churches are all dynamic and lively, and are passionate about making Jesus known. There are currently over 40 churches in 11 countries around the world. These numbers are increasing from year to year! In the UK, there are currently three Equippers locations meeting across Surrey and Essex. 

Equippers Church is part of the ACTS Churches UK movement which provides an apostolic covering to everything we do and connects us relationally to many more churches across the UK and Europe.

Our vision and values represent a clear statement of what we believe in, they define our goals and provide a focus for all our activities.

Our vision is to win souls, make disciples, transform communities and transform nations. We’ve wrapped our core values around the letters H-E-A-R-T. They are what drive us and keep us beating.

Honour Excellence Advancement Reaching Out Togetherness

We believe in moving forward, making progress and learning from our mistakes. We are intentional about extending hospitality and friendship to others. We seek to serve together, grow together and live together with a common vision.
