Our Mission

LifeCC is a church that is part of the Elim Pentecostal Churches movement. Our desire is to be a church where people are excited to gather together. A church on a mission. A church who are desperate to see the City of Chelmsford changed. A church and a city that are so interlinked that it is impossible to separate them.

Because of this, our mission is quite simple. Helping People Encounter Jesus.


That is what we aim to do in everything that we do as a church. We want everything to point to Jesus.
