About Us

Vision of the church

We are an independent and self-funded church a member of the Ground Level network of churches, who’s vision is to help churches fulfil their own visions. 


The vision of the church is based around the town of Watton Norfolk and the surrounding area.


The vision is to build the Kingdom of God and to extend the tent pegs of the church not only locally but also globally, through supporting one another and working in unity both within Home Church but also with other churches who have a likeminded vision.

The vision of Home Church is to be a sanctuary, a place of acceptance and love for all people and to be a safe place of refuge and hope, and to share knowledge and resources to equip and enable other Christians to extend the Kingdom of God.

Church Values

The 'values' Statement seeks to explain the standards that the church sets for the way that the church operates and for the lifestyle of the church. 


“Home Church seeks to operate with the values of Love, Integrity, Trust, Respect, Grace and Transparency in all areas of church and personal life whilst promoting the growth of the individual towards spiritual maturity and to recognise the diversity of ministries within the church.” 


Church Mission

The mission statement explains the reason or purpose for the existence of the church. 


“The purpose of Home Church is to give every person the opportunity of understanding the gospel and to provide a church where they can grow and develop in ministry for the glory of God.”
