The Chartwell Village Church was planted by us several years ago, in Chartwell (as the name indicates!). It is organised on the same values, principles and doctrine that we hold at Village Church Lonehill. It was granted independent autonomy when it attained financial, leadership and ministry stability, but we continue to work together and support this church plant in many areas, and view it very much as part of our family, birthed from Village Church Lonehill… Visit Site
