We’re already very well connected!

Locally, Becontree Church was planted by Dagenham Parish Church, and meets with them and six other local churches, to pray together, and combine on bigger events for outsiders to hear about Christianity.

In London we are part of Co-Mission, a growing network seeking to plant and establish 60 churches by 2025.

We are Anglican, and belong nationally to the Anglican Mission, and the worldwide Anglican community, GAFCON.

We have a great relationship with  ‘London City Mission’, who have a passion to serve unreached areas of London with the gospel.


But, Becontree Church exists for those on the Becontree Estate. Those who’ve never been to church before, or Christians seeking careful Bible teaching and caring relationships, will feel at home.
