Heart For Our House



Heart For Our Heart is an annual offering that helps us to further the vision and mission of our church; beyond our usual capacity. The money raised through Heart For Our House is used to fund projects beyond the financial capacity of our regular tithes and offerings. It’s the vehicle for us to go further and travel faster toward our vision. We believe that through your generosity and faith, we will see significant things take place in Norwich, Ipswich and beyond! 

Year on year, our Heart for Our House offering has helped to propel our church forward toward our vision. Whether investing in the momentous or the seemingly mundane, it has enabled us to reach people for Jesus, equipped us to influence culture, empowered us as we build future. This year, we again have the opportunity to give generously, to play our part in something bigger than ourselves. Whether you've given towards our Heart For Our House offering before or this is your first time, begin to prayerfully consider how much you can give.

We have had an outstanding start to the year! Yes, there have been challenges but something exciting in taking place in our church. Momentum is shifting and we are excited! As we prepare for this years Heart For Our House offering, I want to encourage you to stir your faith and expecation for what God is about to do.

Our Projects

Building Fund

10% of our total will be put into our building fund. We believe in setting the foundations for the future. We want to begin putting money away for us to purchase our own bespoke building by investing in property in the coming years. Norwich and Ipswich are strategic centres for a large and significant church to reach out to our community and reach the lives of others. We’re asking you to buy into our dream for our own building. 

Missional Work

We are passionate about reaching people for Jesus not only in Norwich and Ipswich but across the world. We are particularly passionate about reaching the nations in South East Asia. Here at Proclaimers, we are blessed to have someone like Pastor Tom in our church. He is uniquely gifted and positioned to be able to reach these nations due to his experience, his understanding of the local cultures and his language skills. Recently, doors have opened for Pastor Tom to minister in several countries in the region and we are excited at the opportunity to send him on behalf of Proclaimers.

Alongside the opportunities in South East Asia, Pastor Tom’s impact reaches across Europe through his work with the Eurolead network. Pastor Tom provides coaching, teaching and guidance to pastors and churches on a regular basis. 

Auditorium upgrades

Following our recent pivot in our Sunday service strategy, we want to invest into our auditorium infrastructure to ensure that we can accommodate our Sunday morning services going forwards. This will include several ‘behind the scenes’ upgrades for our production and broadcast infrastructure and other investments that will improve the experience and atmosphere in the auditorium.

The Space
External cosmetic uplift

First impressions matter. In fact, most people have formed a first impression within seven seconds! Situated at the end of an industrial estate, we know that we've got some work to do! We want to upgrade our building's exterior so that the first glimpse of our building generates excitement. Over the coming months, we'll be exploring various options including painting the external walls, installing cladding and creating signage and art installations.

Bathroom revamp

In January 2011, Proclaimers moved to the building we now know as The Space! Over the years, the generosity and dedication of our church has helped us build not only a fantastic church venue but a brilliant conferencing centre as well. We want to make sure that our venue continues to serve our church and our city with excellence. A particular area we know needs an upgrade is our bathrooms. An upgrade of our bathrooms will upgrade our venue as a whole.


Over the next two years, we aim to establish an exceptional internship program tailored for aspiring leaders from Norwich and beyond, who share a fervent desire to build the Church. Our hope is to offer an array of opportunities, including summer internships, 6-12 month part-time and full-time internships, to facilitate the growth and development of future leaders in Norwich and beyond.

We want to enable developing leaders to gain practical training in various aspects of church life, along with opportunities to lead in authentic scenarios. By imparting invaluable knowledge and skills, our goal is to empower the next generation of leaders to transition into significant church leadership roles in Norwich and beyond.

Community outreach

We know that people often don't care about what you know until they know you care. We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our communities. As part of our Heart For Our House initiative, this year we want to put money aside to fund community events. These might include opportunities that arise through our annual Do Good Friday events, through Kid's work and Holiday Clubs and through other avenues. Your generosity will help us to share the love of Jesus directly to our local communities.

events budgets

Our Christmas Concert and our Easter Productions have always been phenomenal invitational opportunities. We know that even those who would never consider coming to church might be tempted during the holidays. Year on year, we've produced some incredible services and seen many people receive Jesus and connect into church as a result. However, our productions often cost more than our regular tithes and offerings can support. This year, we want to put money aside to fund the operational budgets of our Christmas and Easter events so that we can reach even more people for Jesus.
