Our Values

As a church and a family of believers we seek to be the following 5 key areas in our lives as individuals and as a part of Christ's wider church as we go about making disciples and impacting nations.

Gathering

We are family friendly, where people of all ages, backgrounds, live out life together. We do this as dispersed community in Relational Cells, and gathered celebrations on Sundays.

Growing

We are committed to lifelong learning where everyone is effectively discipled. We create environments where information, imitation and immersion happen.

Giving

We seek to live a contagiously generous lifestyle within the body and the local community. We do this by being generous with our time, talents and treasure.

Going

We believe in being passionately mission minded wherever we are. We seek to reach the least, the last and the lost in our neighbourhoods, town and the nations.

Glorifying

We believe all the above are built upon the foundation of an intimate and intercessory walk with the Holy Spirit.

We're not all about Sundays

We believe that we are church wherever we are and whatever we are doing. We [normally] meet in our gathered celebrations on a Sunday morning at 9am and 11am. N2Y and Limitless Ipswich which are our children and youth ministry function only within the 11am service. These are family times where we have vibrant expression of our corporate worship. Throughout the week we [normally] meet scattered in various locations in what we call Relational Cells. These spaces are opportunities to do real life together and are environments for discussion, accountability and discipleship.

Sunday Mornings

We host two services, a smaller more intimate service at 9am, and a family celebration service at 11am where we function children and youth ministries. We’ll save you a seat.

During this season we’re only meeting online at 11am. Be sure to tune in wherever you are staying in, you can watch us on social media or join in the conversation at iic.io/live

Daniel Fast

At that time, I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.
Daniel 10:2-3 (NIV)
The Daniel Fast as the passage above indicates; is a partial fast. As a family of believers we partake in this fast every year at the end of January.

Journeying Through Acts

Throughout the first part of 2020 we will be exploring the book of Acts together as a church. Click here (or see below) to download booklets we will be producing as to help you Journey through Acts together.

Missions

To us at IIC, mission is a mentality not a location

Sending to the nations

Internationally we have sent Sharon who’s out in foreign nations helping to translate the bible into a local language so the people can read the scriptures for themselves.

Romanian Fellowship

We have connections with other fellowships of other language speakers, therefore we look to establish places where people of all different nations and languages feel welcome.

Chaplaincy

As part of our belief in mission, ministers are encouraged to be involved in a missional activity, Pastor David is serving on the chaplaincy in the University and at Suffolk New College, Pastor Harold has previously served as a chaplain to the hospital.

Local missions

We believe mission is a mentality not a location, we express this in various ways, including for example the soup where we go out and feed the homeless as a way of showing and sharing God’s love.

Leadership Team

Meet our leadership team, we cant wait to meet with you. Come say hi this Sunday morning at 9am or 11am.

David Howe

Youth Leader

I began to believe in God for myself at the age of 10, before that I had grown up going to church but never really believed God or Jesus. I felt that they were just stories we heard about and church was something we just did as a family.
