KEC is an independent, conservative evangelical church with congregational governance. We observe the sacraments of believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper and look only to the Bible as our source of inspiration for living as followers of Jesus.
We are members of FIEC (The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches) and hold to its Statement of Faith, as well as its view on significant contemporary issues facing Christians today. https://fiec.org.uk/
KEC is led by The Reverend Andrew Baldock who comes to KEC after a long ministry within the Anglican Church. Andrew studied theology at Northumbria Bible College and Durham University; he was ordained in 2000 and subsequently served in parishes in the North of England, Oxfordshire, and South Ayrshire. Andrew has a particular passion for expository preaching and teaching. He is married to Gilly and enjoys travel, ornithology, and watching American and Rugby Football in his spare time.
KEC’s origins go back to 1738 when the church was founded by Rev Ebenezer Erskine, later becoming part of the Church of Scotland. In March 2005 the church seceded from the Church of Scotland and joined the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches.
