We believe that it is no coincidence that Ben’s grandmother prayed for each of the family every day and donated land to be used as a church. After many years of Southampton Community Church using Quob Lane as a church and a school, the building has been given back to the Davies family. Ben, a trained minister from Rhema Bible College and Fuller Seminary in America has been a Youth Pastor, led his own church before and been a Bible teacher for School of Ministry, taking the gospel and valuable Bible teaching to parts of Africa.
He now feels led by God to lead his own church again and so on March 18th 2018, Anchor Community Church will launch its first Sunday morning worship service for all ages. Ben is a great Bible teacher and is passionate about others knowing the Word of God and knowing the difference it can make to their lives. He is also a brilliant musician, writing many of his own songs as well, leading the live band in church.
His wife, Nicky is a trained teacher and keen musician and will be supporting Ben in the band and helping to lead Anchor Youth Club and Anchor Tots which will start in March and May respectively. She is also passionate about people coming to have a personal relationship with Jesus and seeing the difference it makes in their lives.
Both Ben and Nicky believe that the gospel of Jesus is the anchor of the soul, hence the name of the church, Anchor Community Church. ‘Without Jesus we have no hope for the future – so the gospel message is our hope.’
We welcome everyone, no matter what who you are or wherever you are from and look forward to getting to travel alongside you on your journey with God.
Ben and Nicky Davies
