Our Story

In 2000, Ant and Helen Rist planted a church community in St Albans, Hertfordshire, UK. Over the past 20 years the church has grown into a thriving group of people from all over the world, people who understand the Gospel of Jesus and are living to make a difference wherever they go.

Forest Town Church is a multicultural, multi-generational church committed to the person and teachings of Jesus, and to becoming more like Him by the power of the Holy Spirit. As a distinct expression of the body of Christ in St Albans our mission statement is: Rooted in Christ – Planted in Family – Fruitful in Life.
