About us

Our Story

Pastor Stuart and his wife Andrea moved to Milton Keynes from London in 2014. Before moving to Milton Keynes, they were based at Lynwood Christian Fellowship in Tooting where they both served as ministers. Pastor Stuart also had an itinerant preaching and teaching ministry. After moving to Milton Keynes, God spoke to him about planting a church. For a few weeks, Pastor Stuart and Andrea, with three others (Bev, Joe, and Naomi), met in their home and then publicly launched the church on the 18th January 2015. Joy Community Church was the first church to be planted in Newton Leys, and has continued to grow since its launch.
