Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London


We have a highly committed, strongly motivated and superbly gifted team serving us, both in the pastoral and operational areas, with overall oversight provided by a team of elders and trustees. Our leadership structure ensures that the essential gifts required to lead a church the current and future size of King's are available.

We also have many excellent voluntary leaders who serve magnificently along with hundreds of other volunteers. We strongly believe that our vision of serving our city and reaching the lost in this part of London and beyond, cannot be left to our staff team alone.


The eldership is made up of both staff and non-staff elders who are responsible for the spiritual direction, care and protection of our church family. They work closely and in partnership with the team of trustees who are responsible for the legal, financial and employment aspects of church life.

Please pray

The leadership and staff regularly pray for people who call King's home and for the community and city we're looking to serve and reach. Please pray for those who serve us in providing governing leadership to the church, for the whole staff team across all four of our sites, along with all those who volunteer, without whom King's wouldn't function.
