About ATB

Across the Bridge

About Across the Bridge:


Across the Bridge was launched 2009 by Chas and Nicola* in order to advance the Kingdom of God by supporting and encouraging Christian leaders and churches overseas, through prayer, pastoral support and prophetic ministry.




Across the Bridge supports overseas ministries, particularly in cross-cultural pioneering situations through sending short-term teams offering prayer, teaching, prophetic ministry and pastoral support.


When overseas workers visit the UK we may support them through briefing and debriefing as well as prayer ministry.

In the UK:

Across the Bridge works with Mahabba to reach people of other faith backgrounds in Croydon, UK.

Background of ATB

The founders of 'Across the Bridge are Chas and Nicola. They spent eight years in the Middle East involved in church planting and training, sent out by ICF. In 1997 they returned to the UK and in 1999 Chas was asked to lead the Crystal Palace congregation for ICF. IN 2004 this became an independent church, though still part of other local networks. IN 2009 Chas stepped down from leading the church in order to focus on the ministry of Across the Bridge. Chas & Nicola remain involved in ministry within their local church.


Commendations of Across the Bridge

‘It was a great blessing for our team members to be prayed for individually and receive counselling and words from the Lord. As we often get quite weary in the ministry it was great to be at the receiving end and to feel loved and cared for’.

We were able to open up to your team as we found that you were genuinely keen to understand our experiences, difficulties and the situations that we encounter in the ministry. The prayer times after the time of sharing were really beneficial.

Having worked with Chas and Nicola for over ten years in Crystal Palace Community church I can affirm that they are trustworthy, wholehearted servants of the Lord, rooted in the local church. Their main areas of gifting are pastoral, prophetic and leadership. I strongly recommend their ministry to you.
