King's Community Church, Hedge End
Our vision as a church is to serve our local communities throughout the Solent region bringing practical help wherever it’s needed, and so we have several projects dedicated to that purpose. KCC has been inspired by what Jesus said to his disciples to “go into all the world” with the good news that he died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins, enabling all people from every culture, from every tradition and background to have a dynamic relationship with God.
