Dave Jamieson’s (founder of King’s Church Coventry) heart for local church ignited in December 1978 when he had an angelic visitation and a prophetic word from the Lord. These are some of the words he received:
“I am doing a new work in these days prior to my coming again. There will be an outpouring of my Spirit in a new, yet old way on the final in-gathering of my children into my body. This will make my body one body. They will be united locally as the people of God, Jesus’ people, and the world will see clearly the love they have for one another.”
From this time on Dave was inspired to see a local expression of church at the centre of a community so when the family moved to Cheylesmore they began meeting with other local Christians on Sunday afternoons. They began meeting in one-another’s homes until they eventually moved to meet in Cheylesmore Community Centre. They are known today as King’s Church Coventry.
Dave sadly passed away in 2010 and so currently his son, Paul, is leading the church and managing the community centre. The ongoing purpose, to be an expression of God’s love in the local community, still remains at the heart of the church Dave planted over 20 years ago.
