A Community of Disciples on Mission

Antioch is an ecumenical, charismatic, covenant community, of nearly 200 people 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'.

As a community we are united across church and national barriers in the praise and worship of the Lord. We are united by a covenant to love and serve the Lord, each other and all those he sends us. We have agreed to share our life and resources with each other. We seek to live as radical disciples of Jesus Christ our Lord and make our lives and our resources available for the mission the Lord has given us.

As disciples we seek to exercise the gifts of the Holy Spirit and to bear the fruit he produces. We seek to know the will of the Lord and to follow him with our whole hearts. We want to be available with all we are for the mission he has given us.

Our Mission

  • To live a way of life that is distinct from the world and is characterised by holiness whether in families or as singles and to be a prophetic people who promote the cause of Christian unity
  • To participate in the spread of the Gospel
  • To help build communities across the world in order to be a bulwark and to stem the tide of evil

Who We Are - Questions about our Life

We have pulled together a set of questions people ask us about our life, and you may find the online answers helpful.

These questions are also answered in a leaflet which has been put together. As an ecumenical community, we often need to explain ourselves more than other Christian bodies. This document will provide a summary of who we are and goes through answers to typical questions about us. Throughout you will find quotations from Antioch members, which we hope you find put some flesh on the bones of our answers.
