What's happening at Thrive

Coronavirus update

UPDATED: Crestwood School are now closed and we will not be meeting this Sunday. We have also published a page containing our Coronavirus policy.

Eastleigh 10k

The Eastleigh 10k is due to be held on the weekend of the 22nd of March. Thrive will not be meeting this week and some of us are hoping to support the runners instead. If Coronavirus doesn't stop the event, come and join us!

Space to Thrive

We have five core values here at Thrive which inform everything we do. They make up the flow and rhythm of our life together:


We believe our God is the source of all creativity and as people made in the image of God, we also have creativity within us. We want to see a creativity motivated by love, outworked in our lives, our families and our communities.


We believe the Spirit of God is generous towards us. We want to be marked out as generous, abundant people; generous with our time, our energies, our ideas, our resources, our lives.


We believe that God doesn’t need us to be perfect before him, instead he wants us to be honest and real. We believe that God is never shocked or appalled by our pain, shame, and struggles but is fully committed to our journey towards wholeness.


We believe the Spirit of God is always moving. As we connect into the rhythm of our true life in Jesus, we allow ourselves to grow and be changed by the deep and unending kindness of God.


We believe that God is beyond all human understanding and so we can never reach the end of his grace, compassion, goodness, wisdom, generosity, and love. We believe that God delights in our questions and is not afraid of our doubts.

Come and see for yourself

Meeting together, sharing our stories and listening to one another is the heartbeat of Thrive. We would love to have you join us.
