Disciples Church in Leatherhead

Disciples Church (DC) is part of the Calvary Chapel family of churches. DC started in 2007, as a gathering of a dozen people in Leatherhead. Matt Kottman and his family were sent out by Calvary Chapel Twickenham to start Disciples Church (then known as Calvary Chapel Leatherhead). In 2012 we changed the name of the church to reflect our passion – to follow Jesus as disciples and to live out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), which calls us to be disciples and to make disciples.

A disciple grows to be more like his Master. Thus the Bible, is studied and preached in our gatherings. The Word of God reveals the God of the Word, and it is him we desire to behold. Knowing Jesus more truly means we follow Jesus more fully. We are disciples. However, the role of the disciple is to point others to the one they are following. It’s been said that a Christian is one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread. As followers of Jesus, we aim to point other people toward the one we follow that they too may become followers.
