Our Story

Ichthus Christian Fellowship was founded in 1974 under the leadership of Roger and Faith Forster. We began with the mandate from God to evangelise London and the nations by planting churches of Christ-exalting, Bible-loving believers committed to the Lord Jesus, to His mission and to one another.

By 1982 we had grown from 14 people to around 400 and two new congregations were being planted. Since then, other congregations have been established right across London and Kent, and many other churches in the UK and Europe are linked with us. We also have a thriving overseas missions movement with people working in many nations, with a special focus on the least evangelised nations of the world.

We are still led by Roger and Faith, with the ministry and management team. They oversee the forward movement of the fellowship and special events like Revive and the leaders’ conference. They are supported and guided by our board of trustees, consisting of Professor Rob George (chair), Roger Forster, Faith Forster, David Pharoah, James Chapman and David Steinegger.
