We are a church who formed a charity to buy the old Apollo Cinema. We want to restore it into a centre which will be vibrant, diverse, and life-giving.

As a result of a dramatic call in Brazil, while on a mission trip with Randy Clark, Alastair and Janet were sent out by St James Church, Clitheroe in September 2012, to plant a new church in Blackburn , "Re:Ignite". The vision was to have a church in revival that would restore hope to the town and the church, partly by buying and transforming the old Apollo Cinema as a place for the town. The charity formed in March 2013 and the building became ours in September 2015. After a temporary refurbishment of the lower ground floor, we started meeting in the building in May 2016.
