What is Love Southend?
is an informal group made up of church leaders; church members committed to praying regularly for Southend; and Christians who have positions of influence in the Borough. Based on relationships of trust and openness, our aim is to serve that part of God’s agenda for Southend for which we believe the Body of Christ needs to come together in unity. Throughout Southend churches work together effectively for the Kingdom; Love Southend seeks to serve the Kingdom alongside such work with a focus on Borough-wide ministry.
Love Southend’s strap-line – 'Showing God’s love throughout the Borough of Southend' - is expressed in Borough-wide prayer and worship, evangelism, mercy ministry, and Christian influence into areas of the social and working life of Southend. These areas of ministry are supported and overseen by church leaders, intercessors, and key influencers as appropriate who share the vision and values of Love Southend. They draw on the resources and gifting of Christians across the Borough who participate in such ministry with the agreement of their own local church leadership. Such areas of ministry currently include Southend Prayer Wall, Street Pastors, Route 1, and regular meetings with senior Police Officers.
In order to build relationally, work together effectively and seek God’s will diligently, church leaders, intercessors and key influencers meet regularly to worship and pray together and to envision, encourage, initiate or administrate Borough-wide ministry. The vision, values and work of Love Southend is served by the Love Southend Servant Team, a group of Southend church leaders whose Co-ordinator is Mark Churchward. The charitable trust SEELEF, accountable to the South-East Essex Leaders’ Forum, acts as the registered charity under which Love Southend operates.
