History of Ackworth CC

Ackworth Community Church was planted in October 1991 with 12 people coming out of Hemsworth Christian Fellowship with a call to plant a lively church in Ackworth.

Having experienced the growth of the church in Hemsworth, the leaders of the church started to feel the call of God to plant a church in one of the surrounding villages. Through much prayer, the leaders started to feel the call to come to Ackworth and in the following weeks and months that call was confirmed in numerous ways.

The church has always wanted to work alongside and compliment the other churches in Ackworth and over the years we have built up some good friendships with them. We are currently working as churches together in Ackworth on an annual Alpha Course, as well doing many other events together throughout the year.

Our goal has always been to provide a place for those with little or no church background to be able to come and explore the wonder of being able to have a relationship with God and his son Jesus, through the enabling of the Holy Spirit. Many people over the years have come and experienced something of the life changing power of God and the invitation remains to come and taste and see that he Lord is good.
