It’s not often one sees a church rename itself, but that’s what Hitchin Christian Centre has just done.

The church, in Bedford Road, is now called Zeo Church.

Senior pastor Matt Summerfield said: “Zeo is a word from the Bible which means ‘passion’, and we are passionate about seeing people thrive and flourish in every part of their lives – emotionally, physically, relationally, mentally, financially, and spiritually.”

More than 330 people joined a celebratory launch with Hitchin and Harpenden MP Bim Afolami as guest.

The Conservative MP, whose grandfather was an Anglican vicar, said: “I cannot think of a better, more joyous atmosphere than this church. It is absolutely mind-blowing, so continue doing what you’re doing.”

The church meets at The Priory School on Sunday mornings and also runs weekly groups and courses, as well as community initiatives aimed at helping people out of debt, into work and more.

Matt said: “We hope that people will find welcome, inspiration and strength at Zeo Church – regardless of whether they have a faith or not. Life can be very hard, but we believe that together, with God, anything is possible.”
