At ACI we believe that hallelujah: (Praise the Lord) must be the every day language of a child of God, no matter what season of life they’re in. Exciting Praise and Worship to us is a lifestyle of expressing our love and adoration for our Lord Jesus Christ.
To us polite applause is empty praise!
Praise is not just a request, it is a command; Praise is not merely an art-form but the attitude of a grateful heart.
We worship God as He is: “A LIVING GOD” – who enjoys and inhabits the praises of His people.
Our Services begin with soul stirring and spiritually inspiring Praise and Worship that ushers in the glory and presence of God, preparing our hearts to receive His life changing Word and activating our faith for the demonstration of His power.

Our Youth Church is dedicated to equipping young people with knowledge and life skills relevant to their day to day experiences.

The Children’s department functions in response to the direct instruction issued by the word of God; it is required of every Christian parent to bring up their children in the reverential fear of the Lord.
The Ministry’s foundational and instructional scripture is Psalm 78: 5-8.
In response to the above scripture, the children are taught to put their trust in God, to remember His ways and to remain loyal and faithful to Him in all the days of their lives. This is achieved through curriculum set out to teach the various topics adapted to their age groups. The teaching methods adopted are interactive and involve a lot of activities.

The welfare ministry operates to provide our church members, and particularly those who are recently bereaved or in need of support due to a specific event (e.g. unexpected unemployment) with financial donations and extended fellowship as and when required. This may include hospital visitations and counselling and small financial donations to meet with unexpected costs (e.g. funeral, housing costs). Externally, the welfare ministry runs campaigns to raise cash for local and international charities and runs coffee mornings to invite the local community in for friendship and emotional support. One such social interaction includes teatime with the elderly, physically challenged and the lonely.

The focus of the Men’s Fellowship is to develop strong men who can function as God’s ordained leaders in establishing godly government in their homes, at their workplaces, and in the community.
ACI’s Men’s Fellowship is a vibrant ministry that supports men in the church, teaching them about the principles of the kingdom and encouraging them to apply these principles in their personal lives.

By establishing a platform that concentrates on issues that men face daily, men are inspired to rise above these challenges and pursue excellence as a standard. Our objective is for the fellowship to become a supportive environment that touches the lives of the entire church family.

Practical Christianity extends the hand of love, hope, joy and peace to the disillusioned, the hurting and the unloved.
In line with our goal to take Christianity outside the walls of the church, ACI seeks to regularly interact with the local community through various outreach programs , church planting and Branch fellowship initiatives. These are opportunities for ACI to support the local community and spread the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our desire is to see broken homes restored and loved ones reconciled. We aim to become instrumental in pulling down barriers that divide communities and to draw communities together to overcome common challenges.

As a vibrant, multicultural church, we take the opportunity to celebrate our various cultures with an annual international day. Pre Covid, we had the pleasure of hosting the High Commissioners (and representatives) of Sierra Leone, Ghana, and Nigeria for our International Day celebration. The theme was Diversity, taking inspiration from 1 Timothy 2:14. Together with the Clergy, Children, and Youth, we learnt about different countries, their food, national attire, cultures and Christian expression through dance, song, and drama. We also had the company of our local parliament Labour Party councillors of the Maida Vale ward, Nafisika Butler-Thalasis and Rita Begum when our main branch was based in Maida Vale.

Young Adults and Youth Fellowship

Our youth and young adults’ ministry are a key feature of our church and an important area of focus for us. With countless stories of displaced, marginalised young people who are increasingly at risk of violent crime and with poor prospects for the future, we believe that the church has an important role to play to restore hope, aspiration and encouragement to young people in the community.

The report of increase in mental challenges with the youth has given the church a holistic approach with intention to go further from where we were to engage and interact with the young ones in more social activities like sports, talent shows and talent building.

Our church has a vibrant congregation of young adults who are challenging and redefining the status quo of Christian living. Five core pillars underpin the young adults’ ministry: Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Community & Character and Economic (SPICE) advancement. Underpinned by biblical teaching, these practical pillars aim to enable Christians to lead well-rounded lives that are a true reflection of the fullness and abundance promised in Christ.

Two Notable events held in recent years include:
1. Faith & Finances – an “E” pillar event, held successfully at the KPMG in Canary Wharf to economically empower Christians to make an impact in our communities.

2. Our Young Adults team proudly won a 2-church tournament, King of Kings Football showdown, held at the Paddington Recreational Grounds for the Community. Food and drinks served after the event enabled both teams to socialise with members of the community who came to watch the match.
