Who We Are


Court Farm Church is a fellowship of believers in Jesus that hold to the absolute authority of the Word of God and the importance of knowing the ministry and empowering of the Holy Spirit.

We recognise that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, and that all we do needs to flow from His will and direction.

Our aim first and foremost is to please our Lord, who is so worthy of all our praise and adoration. We desire also for all people to come to a saving knowledge of Christ and those who know Him progress in their walk with Jesus.

Our members come from different backgrounds and past experiences, but there is a wonderful unity in our desire to be one in the truth of God’s Word. As a result, our fellowship is sweet, and there is a genuine love for one another.

Weather you would like to visit us, or want to join us, we hope that your time with us will be a blessing to you, and that you will be built up in your relationship with the Lord.
Every blessing in Jesus,



Sundays 10:30 onwards

Brian looks after the well-being of the Church. As well as helping people when in his capacity to do so he has been blessed with the ability to do a wide range of things and Brian sees it as his responsibility to use those God given abilities for the benefit of the Church.

Court Farm Church in 1980
Court Farm Church Today

Court Farm, an independent evangelical church, was established over 75 years ago, in 1938. A small band of men & women of vision took a large patch of green grass at the top of Court Farm Road and turned it into a thriving church at the heart of the new community that was being built; a place where we are glad to say we still aim and seek to be! Our mission is to be real, relevant and relationship-orientated. Our passion is to know Jesus Christ in all His fullness and to make Him known through the power and work of the Holy Spirit in the way we serve our community.

During that first, hot, summer one of the founders went round the estate ringing a hand-bell, gathering a following of children like, the Pied Piper, every Sunday for a Sunday School on the grassy area close to the where the ‘Mission’, as it was to become affectionately known, was being built. With the formation of the NHS in 1948 more adjoining land was acquired and a new Medical Suite was built, functioning as it does today as a separate Christian Doctor’s surgery under the name of ‘The Links Medical Practice’. (The ‘Link’ is still there with the Downham surgery, both are classed as a joint practice).

In the late 1990s the Church appointed a pastor for the first time, the Rev Brian Collie was the pastor for 25 years, John Hayward was appointed as pastor having burden to see the remnant church built up in these last days, holding fast to the Word of God, and filled with the Holy Spirit.
