Our Vision

Kings Church is a visionary name for a visionary people. We are a church who are committed to knowing the King of Kings increasingly as He makes an impact in our lives and the lives of people in the Selby and Sherburn-in-Elmet areas and beyond.

We are a people committed to seeing renewal and reconciliation. Renewal of Biblical values to people’s lives and reconciliation between people and God and people with each other. This drives who we are and what we do as a church. This vision is central to how we move forward and central to the core values we hold dear on that journey. We love the town and the surrounding villages and we believe that God does too.

We are passionate about having a strong church to fulfil the purposes that God has called us to. As such we aim to show love, forgiveness, mercy and grace not only to those involved with the church but to all who we come into contact with.

Many people who have come along to our services have commented on how they have been made welcome, this is our aim. One visitor commented:- “It is the first time I have been to church and not felt guilty”.

Our vision is to see in our church and our town the expression of the love that Jesus has for people.

  • "There I was: 25, happily married, gorgeous home and a beautiful baby boy! What more could there be to life? Well I was terribly lonely, exhausted and on the verge of depression when a lady with a baby the same age invited me for coffee. She had the same baby ‘troubles’ as me but something kept her smiling and full of peace. Then she asked me (somewhere between "Here is your coffee" and "Would you like a biscuit?”), "Do you know Jesus?” My life’s journey had begun; when will yours start? - Sonia"

  • ""Why aren't you a Christian?" The question cut through our conversation. At college I'd just found out that my best friend was a Christian and was enjoying winding him up in front of the group. "Why are you a Christian?" I mockingly asked. Then that question came from a girl at the back of the class. I realised I didn't have a sensible answer as it was something I had never considered. If my friend thought it important, shouldn't I at least look at it and decide if there was something true about it? - Ralph"

  • "Unloved, a nobody - that's how I felt. God knocked on my door. Eventually I let him in. Now I know I'm loved for just who I am. Now I'm somebody. I'm special to God and He is special to me. It's so lovely to be loved unconditionally. -Mary, aged 57"
