communication for the valley.

About Us


In the 1980s a group of friends at Sible Hedingham Baptist Fellowship felt called to pray for a hunger, revival and restoration of God’s ways in the Colne Valley. 

Since then, Colne Valley Alive has grown to involve churches and individuals of every denomination along the Colne River; worshipping and praying for the area, and joining together in unity. 


Growing in unity

We'd love to partner with you and your church: growing unity through friendship and fellowship along the length of the valley from source to sea!

Please go onto the Events Page and scroll down to see the Calendar which contains details of Gatherings and Teachings.

We'd love to include your Special Events and Courses too! We look forward to hearing from you. email: colnevalleyalive@gmail.com

He Knows My Name:

Listen to Tim Hughes on Barnabas Blog "Worship is a Weapon" Talk

2 Chronicles 20:12-26 is our Mission

Statement for the Colne Valley

We don't know what to do but our eyes are upon you.The Lord said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s....

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged....  Jehoshaphat's enemies were Moabites, Ammonites and Meunites. Joyce Meyer writes that today's enemy '-ites' are:- fear-ites, disease-ites, poverty-ites, bad marriage-ites, stress-ites, grouchy neighbour-ites, insecurity-ites, rejection-ites and so on.... Bible in One Year/HTB

 After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing (shouting and singing and praising at the top of their lungs!) to the Lord and to praise him for the splendour of his holiness as they went out at the head ofthe army saying

(shouting, singing at the top of their lungs) 

"Give thanks the Lord for his Love Endures Forever!"  

The valley became a Valley of Blessing.... v26   'Alive@5' seeks to be a choir infront of an army of willing helpers ready to be available for God to use whatever they can offer.  

Here's to the Increaseof Blessings in our Beautiful Colne Valley!


Verses for Lent

Praying for our country during these uncertain times

and standing gratefully on His Promise:-

"But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well".

Matthew 6:33


Hiding between the shortest and the longest Psalms 

is Psalm 118 verse 8.  The central / key verse in the Bible?

v8 "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put your trust in man".

v22 "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone"

v29 "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,

His love endures for ever"
