Who are we?
Scott Drive is an independent evangelical church affiliated to the fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches
Church simply means that we are a group of believers who meet together to worship God through His divine Son, Jesus Christ.
Independent means we run our own affairs – there is no higher human organisation in charge of us which takes our money or tells us what to do! However, we do believe that Jesus Christ is the head of our church, and we under His authority – we are not independent of Him!
We also believe in the inter-dependence of gospel churches, which is one reason why we belong to an association known as FIEC (see link below) and work with gospel-centred churches from other denominations in the Peninsula Gospel Partnership.
Evangelical means we believe in the original gospel message that Jesus gave to his disciples (‘evangel’ is another word for gospel).
We find the record of this gospel in the Bible, which we believe was inspired by God so that generations after Christ could still receive His message.
The word has actually got nothing to do with a ‘church’ building, it just means a congregation!
For many centuries after Christ, most churches had no buildings of their own, and met mostly in homes or hired buildings.
We are fortunate today to own a building in Scott Drive – but the real church is the people!
The FIEC is a group of about 500 like-minded churches in the UK, with whom we work together, in particular to organise joint events, conferences etc.

New Sunday morning series
Starts Sunday 23rd April
Taking possession of the Inheritance
Joshua succeeds Moses as leader of the people of Israel, commissioned with the task of taking possession of the Promised Land, for which God had destined them since their departure from
Egypt - indeed, since he called their ancestor
Abraham out of Ur of the Chaldees, back in the
early chapters of Genesis!
Both leader and people were faced with many challenges and difficulties, but, over the course
of the Book, we see them overcoming these,
with God's help.
There will be much to learn here for us about the nature of the Christian life, the spiritual warfare we
re called to take part in, and the dangers and temptations along the way.
Do prepare yourself for the journey! - maybe take time to read each passage in advance; pray for the speaker; pray that God may speak to us through his word, and that we might be obedient to what we
hear, being willing to follow where he calls.
