About Us

Who we are, where we have come from and where we're headed as a church family.

We're saving a seat for you!

Crown Family Church is a contemporary, charismatic church that meets in Wallington in Surrey. We are a church living in revival! We are a family of individuals from many different backgrounds that have found faith in Jesus Christ. Simply put, we want as many people as possible to experience the exact same freedom and love that comes from a personal relationship with God the Father. We gather together people from all over South West London and Surrey to praise and worship God.

Where we've come from

Crown Family Church was started in May 2018 by a small group of families who desired to see more of God in their lives. Back then, we imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table, regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. We were asking God to reveal more of His love to us. As we began to meet in our homes, we grew in size and needed a more permanent home. In October 2018, the church moved to a Village Hall in Banstead. In 2021 following the global pandemic, the church acquired the Upper Room in Wallington, where we meet currently. We draw members from all over Surrey and South London and invite you to join us and plan a visit.

Where we're heading

What's the bottom line? More than ever, we are committed to fostering a family built around the message of the Gospel. We believe that it is God's great love that unites us together. All of our meetings are centred around worshipping Jesus and growing in love for the world around us. This gives us hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the centre of who we are as followers of Christ. We believe that we are living in a culture of revival and that everyone can encounter the love of God to empower them to live a supernatural life. Our church is a place where people are accepted and loved, but most importantly, encounter God's transforming love.

What this means for you

Most importantly, you're always welcome in the God's family. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the family and encouraged to grow and develop in your personal relationship with Christ.
