Faith is Spelt R.I.S.K

Allowing space for God to show up! Stepping outside our comfort zones and taking a risk because we have a big god. "Faith moves in Heaven so that Heaven moves Earth."

Our Story

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 bought the building in September 2015. After a temporary refurbishment of the lower ground floor, we started meeting in the building in May 2016. See www.exchangeblackburn.org.uk for more.

Our Vision

To create a vibrant family of hope-filled Christians who deeply experience the love and presence of God and partner with Jesus to express the joy and power of His kingdom in every area of life.
