Bringing hope in a practical way, and always looking out for the one, through one of our exceptional teams: Age Groups and Soul Foundation (Community Focus).

A word from our pastors

“God is doing something amazing in Norwich, and it is our privilege to serve Him, leading the fantastic team at SOUL Church on this journey. We want our city to know Jesus, and we are passionate about building the local church where people from all backgrounds are welcome, providing a place they can call home.”

LUKE 2:52 "And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favour with God and Man."


Beth - UK

In SLA I have made lifelong friends and grown in my relationship with God more than I could imagine. I have grown in my ability to lead through uncertain times, due to the practical experience and wise teachings from staff and senior leaders. SLA is an opportunity to spend a whole year committing all you have to God and stepping into the call on your life, surrounded by the best people.

SLA has taught me how to become a better leader with the gifts God has placed inside me, while also discovering new gifts. Moving to a new country has shown me how to lead others with an open and different perspective. I have truly grown in myself and my relationship with others. I couldn't have asked for a better year serving this new place I call home away from home!


Sam - Germany

This year has been one of the most rewarding years of my life! I have learnt so much about my own personality, what strengths and weaknesses I have and I really love the church environment. It is truly an enormous stepping stone for my future plans with God. I would recommend it to anyone with a heart for God and the desire to grow in faith and leadership.
