About: Our story
The Ark Church Halifax started meeting every Sunday on Easter Sunday, 27th March 2016 but our story goes a little further back…
When the Ark Church Huddersfield was planted in 2010, we felt God speak about a second Church Plant in Halifax in the coming years. With that in mind, we started a midweek ‘life group’ in 2012 in Halifax where a small number of church members met for friendship, encouragement and to pray for a new church to be started in Halifax.
At the same time, God was speaking to Matt and Sharon Cameron, who were part of a Christ Central Church in Leeds, about moving to lead a new church plant in Halifax. Matt, Sharon and family moved to Halifax in 2013 where there was about 20 people meeting regularly, all with a heart to see God grow our small gathering into a church that would serve Halifax and reach out to anyone and everyone with the good news that Jesus loves them personally.
Since then, God has been building us into a community - a community whose focus is Jesus - with a passion to see Him made known in Halifax.
