The Blackburn campus is situated just on the edge of Blackburn Town Centre, making it accessible by all forms of public transport.
As a campus we desire to build a thriving church, that will be a place of rest to those who are hurt and seeking sanctuary. In the book of 1 Samuel, we read of David and his family fleeing to the cave of Adullam. Soon, David is joined by many others who have been forced to flee, because of mistakes they made, due to not being made welcome, even due to being in debt and they are all called worthless men. Yet when they have been to Adullam these people are no longer called worthless, but they leave being known as David’s mighty men, warriors of renown who do the will of the King.
This is what the Blackburn campus aims to be, a hospital and fortress where the weak may come, be revived and be strong again. However, this reviving isn’t to create a warehouse church with lots of people in it. Our heart is to revive people, so they may be like the Antioch Church found in the Book of Acts. In Acts 13, we read of Paul and Barnabas at this church and from it the famous Missionaries are sent to do the very work the Holy Spirit has called them to.
This is the purpose of the Blackburn Campus, to revive you, to equip you and to send you where ever the Lord will lead. For the King whom the mighty men will follow is not the pastor or leadership team, but as our GPC family vision shows, is the Lord Jesus, who through inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we were created to serve through the good work He puts in our hearts.
Blackburn is a multi-cultural and multi-racial town and as a church we reflect this, having a fellowship of believers from many tribes, tongues and nations and our body of believers has nationalities from 4 different continents. What binds us together is that we have a shared experience of receiving the Grace and Mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ who has saved us from our sins.
We encourage people to worship and minister in the language that they are most comfortable with. We also currently translate our services into French. Finally, we encourage you to worship and minister in the way you are most used to, believing that we worship from the heart, and in each of us that emotional response is different, yet it is the same Spirit at work in us all.
You are most welcome to join us at the Blackburn campus, for either our Sunday service or one of the many activities you can attend.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
