City Changer


what lives in the heart of doxa deo

Doxa Deo functions as ONE CHURCH in a city with a variety of campuses and ministries. Everything we do focusses on equipping and raising up people to become agents of positive change in their world, City Changers who Know God, Love People and Impact Their World.

We have a mission to positively influence every sector of society with the values and the purposes of Jesus. We believe that church, education, social services, business, media, arts, sports and civil society will flourish when the life giving values of Jesus Christ are applied in these areas.

We are a Family on Mission!


Our Projects run right across the Royal London Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames from numerous centres that help maintain local presence with local people.

Check out our list of projects below to find out specific occasions when to you can get involved either as clients or as volunteers.

Kingston Foodbank

was established in 2012 out of a response to provide people experiencing lack in this area of food. Our Foodbank is a Trussel Trust recognised food bank and our goal is two fold; first to alleviate the strain and pressure faced by local people in providing food in challenging circumstance, secondly to no longer be in existence by 2025 as a result of sustainable ways for people to address practical needs and issues.

Why do we talk about Partnership?

It is important to us that people would move from simply attending our church gatherings to actually engaging relationships, activities and the mission of our Church.

The Bible uses many different metaphors for the Church like a bride, an army, a building and a body. We love the metaphor from 1 Corinthians 3:9 that says that we are co-labourers with God.

It was out of this scripture that the concept of partnership was established. We are not just members of a church, we are partners with God for His mission on earth.

Partnership implies that we use our time, talents and treasures to build God’s Kingdom everywhere we function and live.

Time: We manage our time well as we prioritise Church Life.

Talents: We use our unique talents and gifts to build the body of Christ.

Treasures: We invest our money and resources to build the Church of Jesus Christ.

How do I become a Partner?​
