Dave Smith at Ashburnham 2017

Dave Smith, the founder of Kingsgate Community Church, is to be one of the main speakers at Ashburnham 2017 #Ash.

Launched in their tiny living room in Peterborough in 1988 by Dave and his wife Karen, Kingsgate began with nine people.

Today the church is over 1,600 strong and based in a purpose-built building on a 12-acre site in Parnwell, Peterborough.

It has also planted three other churches in Cambridge, Leicester and London.

KingsGate Community Church is a founding partner in the Foodbank initiative and works with other churches across the city as well as a local mosque. Last year 42 tonnes of food were donated, enabling Foodbank to support more than 3,800 people.
