Welcome to Antioch
Welcome to our website. We aim to explain what Antioch is and what life in Antioch is about. You can keep up-to-date on our current events by visiting the calendar or to communicate with a real person, use our contact page.
Jesus is Risen from the Dead
Jesus Christ our only hope for salvation has risen from the dead.
Good Friday March
Ros Yates led us in singing as we set off on the Good Friday March on Friday 29th March. Antioch provided the stewards as 350 people walked up Acton High Street.
When we got to Acton Hill Church, the Youth band were there to help Trevor and Andy lead the service.
Veronica joined the young musicians of the youth band.
Miracle Healing Service
On Wednesday 27th February we held a
Miracle Healing Service with
Damian Stayne of the Cor et Lumen Christi Community.
Damian spoke to us of his experience of God's intervention in people's lives, when they invite him to act. He reminded us that Jesus healed many people, and did not restrict his work to those who were especially "holy". His concern was for those in need.
Damian also did not claim special healing powers for himself, but rather invited all those present to pray for those around them who requested prayer. It was this sort of prayer from those people who attended the meeting which brought out healings.
Many people testified to improvements, in different areas of their life. Difficulties in walking or moving quickly were overcome by the power of prayer, and several people reported improvements in hearing, seeing, and ease of movement in different parts of the body.
The common denominator was that Jesus Christ, who healed when he walked around the Holy Land two thousand years ago, was showing his love for those in need today, in exactly the same way.
This was an event which strengthened faith, encouraged confidence in God's power and invited us all to rejoice in the fact that God loves us and will never stop loving us.
We express our gratitude to Damian Stayne and his team for leading the evening, and to the Reverend Jennifer Smith and the members of Acton Hill Church in Acton who allowed us to use their beautiful church for our meeting.
The Pastors' Dinner - thanks to all the workers!
Bob Bell and his team of Mimi and Beth organised the cooks, the waiters, the table shifters and the washer-uppers so that the pastors of Acton and their spouses could share fellowship together. The food was delicious, the fellowship really enjoyable, and the entertainment, by Dan and Daniel, really good!
(We have a short video of this performance and it is now available to view on Kairos Media. Enjoy!)
The pastors were very pleased to attend this unique gathering, where fellowship and mutual appreciation were the touchstone.
Our Gappers thrive
We have Stephen in Michigan, on the left in this photo, and Katrina in Australia while others have gone not so far away. Susan is in Glasgow and Joe in Dublin. But in their case, it's not called gap but Uni! Find them on facebook!
The Lord's Day
Hugh Potter gave us a very informative teaching recently on the Lord's Day, and here is a link to a video, by Andy, which is also very helpful.
Some of us went to Belgium - "On Holiday"!
We ran an "Open House" so the other communities could savour Antioch life in London. Some came to taste our different teas, some to eat our delicious cakes, scones and other delicacies! Some came for the Antioch Quiz, others for the Antioch Olympic Games (thanks to Deborah and John for running those!)
Hugh and Dan were among several musicans who entertained us, thanks to them and to the Turner family for letting us use their home!
We had the Rodgers family from Cairo, and Joshua played along. Of course, in the meetings we once again got the wonderful sound of Andrew's trumpet, which really made a difference to the worship!
There were several workshops, for photography, singing, learning how to sing those awkward - and yet beautiful - Polish songs with no vowels (thanks PM!) as well as sculpture and some Polish folk dancing. Here we see Ros by some of her artwork. With Jamie she led a workshop on creating works of art.
On three mornings, Bruce Yocum gave some very encouraging, and thought-provoking teachings on "the Joshua Generation" and you can click here to get to them.
Antioch is . . .
Antioch is an ecumenical, charismatic, covenant, Christian community based in West London. We have been united by the Lord with a common way of life and mission. We belong to the Sword of the Spirit, a world-wide 'community of communities'. For more information see the about us pages.
We now have recordings of teachings from our meetings if you have missed them, or just want to hear them again. However, talks from "Members'" meetings are in the Members' section.
Short articles by our members
This is a series of short pieces about our experience of the Christian life. The first was by Arthur Delargy, and then we got the experience of Karen Jordan, who joined us from our sister community in Mumbai. Dominic Perrem told us about his walk of faith, and continues it in Dublin, in the Community of Nazareth, and then we got Bob Bell too. Read them and be inspired!
We have an outreach to students at the London colleges called koinonia. Their pages are worth a read!
This all sounds interesting, what do I do to find out more?
