Coton Green Church (CGC) was established 50 years ago by our Senior Pastor. Having faithfully served the church membership and community during this time he is now looking forward to his imminent retirement. Coton Green Church is an independent evangelical church in the Midlands with a membership of approximately 150 from a diverse age range and ethnicity. The church is affiliated to both the FIEC and EA.
Our vision is to bless and connect with the considerable diversity of people inside our church and our community, offering a place of safety, healing, wholeness and hope, where people experience the love of God and lives are transformed.
CGC is very much a work in progress, holding many exciting opportunities. We wait with anticipation to reach out and serve the hundreds of families who will shortly move into new housing developments currently being built all around us. We are motivated to expand our existing facilities and excited by the huge opportunity to develop our 7-acre site. We are constantly evolving and developing as we seek to fulfil God’s vision for us in our community.
