The Church was planted 25 years ago by two local Anglican congregations, looking to expand their ministry by creating a ‘Fresh Expression’ of church. The vision was for Springfield to be ‘a river ministry’ flowing through the town, and since its inception, our purpose has been to minister in the local community, with a focus on mission and worship.
Springfield is a church without its own buildings and has always hired local venues — normally schools — to meet in. The first home of the Church was in Springfield Road, Wallington — hence our name. As the congregation has grown, we have moved to larger premises to accommodate all that we do and are now established at Wallington High School for Girls.
