The Woodford CLF church started in December 2011 with a small group from our sister branch – CLF Greenwich.

We exist to be a Christ centred church. We express this purpose through our commitment to prayer, worshiping God, ministering to humanity, evangelising our world. We are a family of believers and disciple our members into Christ-likeness.

Woodford CLF is a multi-national, multi-cultural family church based in the heart of South Woodford. Our aim is to reach the entire community around us from Stratford to Epping (and beyond) to teach the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our belief is in the Holy Trinity, our teaching rooted in the scriptures and our fellowship is filled with praise and worship. We meet weekly for our local Connect Groups, on Fridays at our weekly corporate prayer meetings and every Sunday for service and family fellowship from 1pm.

Our Background

Christian Life Fellowship (CLF) began in the United Kingdom on 1st March 1994 as an independent Church within the Borough of Greenwich with about 35 people.

The last 21 years, Christian Life Fellowship International has seen a steady growth and development from that one local Church to several Churches planted in the UK, and many more planted. CLF has also given birth to various ministries that serve the wider body of Christ and the world at large. Our outreach endeavours have included missions to Canada, USA, Jamaica, St Vincent, Guyana, Brazil, Romania, Belgium, Kenya, Zambia, South Africa and Cambodia.
