Pocklington Christian Fellowship is a member of the UK chapter of Assemblies of God and is affiliated with the Evangelical Alliance.
We also have a close working relationship with the other churches (Methodist, Church of England and Roman Catholic) in the area of Pocklington under the umbrella of ‘Churches Together In Pocklington‘. We celebrate and embrace all that unites us rather than focus on issues that would seek to divide the church of Christ. We therefore collectively participate in the BIG SING – an annual praise event for the Pocklington community, an annual Lent Course, joint worship services and social inter-church activities. We also provide Christian literature to children in primary and secondary education.
Assemblies of God UK consists of 600 churches across the country which aim to recognise the importance of being apostolically-led, relationally connected and focused on missionary work. It is a Pentecostal movement which believes that every individual can and should have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have the opportunity to be part of a local, vibrant church. It seeks to build churches that are relevant to people of all ages – many of our churches attract a large number of young people. In our local expression of church and our corporate identity as a whole, we are committed to transforming communities by reaching out to all individuals regardless of age, race or gender. As a movement, we want to “Give every man, woman and child the opportunity of understanding the gospel and to provide a church where they can grow in ministry for the glory of God.”
The Evangelical Alliance consists of 3500 churches and represents over 1,000,000 Christians across many cultures and denominations. As part of a movement ‘uniting to change society’, the Alliance promotes unity and truth, acts as an evangelical voice to the state, society and the wider church, and works collaboratively with Alliance members and other evangelicals, to present Christ credibly as good news for spiritual and social transformation. The Alliance speaks on behalf of its members and represents evangelical concerns to Government, the National Assemblies, the media and key decision-makers. In resourcing its members and encouraging Christians to fully engage in their communities as responsible citizens, the Alliance strives to make evangelical truths publicly accessible.
