Welcome to Kingdom Exchange Ministries (KEM).
Kingdom Exchange Ministries is a multi-cultural, multi-generational church in Brompton, Medway. It is an exciting place where people find meaning and purpose for their lives and where lifelong friendships are formed out of love, support, encouragement and accountability.
We are a modern and contemporary church, active in the community through our charity Brompton Community Shop, and our sister ministry BU Mentoring. We are driven by a fervent conviction that Jesus and Christianity are still relevant, and the answer for the world’s struggles.
With a message of truth, hope and love, we are passionate in worshipping God. It is part of our mandate to develop and release people to fulfil their God given potential, whilst working together to fulfil a common vision of reaching the people of Brompton, Medway and beyond. We are dedicated to showing compassion to those in need, and through a variety of solid teachings, we actively encourage the spiritual and practical growth of our members, equipping them for every good work in the community. We have an unwavering belief that “God accepts us as we are, to change us from who we were to who he wants us to be”. At Kingdom Exchange Ministries, we welcome all people no matter their age, ethnicity, background, orientation or history.
Free from all gimmicks and showmanship, at KEM, we go back to the basics where our primary focus is to be enriched by the word of God, worshipping Him in spirit and in truth.

What We Believe About God
We believe the Bible is God’s word for all people, that it is perfect ultimate truth, and the road map for the Christian life.
We believe that God is the creator of the universe and exists as one God in 3 persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus came to earth as a man, but He was also fully God. We believe He died on a cross and rose again, and that in Him, all people can be saved to have eternal life with God the father.
We believe that from the moment someone comes into relationship with God that He lives in them by the Holy Spirit, and that He brings God’s power and wisdom for every believer to live the life God intended for them.
Our focus at KEM is intimacy with Jesus. Our mission is through teaching, discipleship, fellowship, evangelism, ministry and worship, to create an environment in which members are encouraged to seek and develop a personal relationship with God, which transcends to all areas of their lives. (Matthew 6:33)
We aim to be a place where lives can be transformed out from darkness, and into God’s marvellous light. Through love, support, encouragement and accountability, our family orientated church hopes to live out Christ’s love in our service to the local community and beyond.
The purpose of Kingdom Exchange Ministries existence is four-fold:
• To encourage people to come to the saving grace of God and having a relationship with Jesus.
• To encourage people in the knowledge of God.
• To encourage people, grow in relationship with God.
• To encourage people overcome the physical and emotional challenges they face.
Our belief is to be centred and hinged on the truth of the Bible, which enables us to be passionate and unwavering in compassion for the less privileged in society.
We have a variety of people who speak at Kingdom Exchange Ministries who have a desire to teach, inspire and help people grow in their understanding of the Bible and their relationship with God.
We have a short time of exhortation given by a different person each week which lasts 5 minutes before the main message which lasts about 45 minutes.
All messages aim to be transforming, life applicable and easy to understand.
At the end of the message, there is usually an opportunity to receive prayer in response to the message or for any area of life where you may be struggling or in need. Again, there is no pressure on anyone to do so.
We meet on Sundays from 10.00 am to 12.45 pm at The Lampard Centre, Sally Port, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 5BU
We meet for bible studies on Tuesdays at The Hub, Brompton High Street, 13-15 High St, Brompton, Gillingham, ME7 5AA.
We meet in a recently built and comfortable MOD building which seats a total of 300 people in both halls, with provision also for our youth and children to meet. On arrival, you could park your car at the car park and follow the paved footpath to the entrance door or if by foot, entry is through the mesh fence gate, follow the paved footpath to the entrance door where you will be given a warm welcome.
We encourage active participation in all activities and programs, but also provide a non-pressured environment for new visitors and people just wanting to “check us out”. Our services tend to last about 2 hour 45 minutes. We serve refreshments after the service, so that people have space and time to meet with new and existing friends to enjoy fellowship.
Our style of worship is modern and contemporary where our meetings use a combination of modern style praise and worship songs and visual media. It is not particular to any one genre. We sing songs from a variety of artistes and some written by inspired members of our very own worship team.
Our worship team is truly inspired by the leading of the Holy Spirit, which gives members the liberty to avail themselves to a time of total surrender to the sovereignty of God.
We encourage our members to use their gifts to the glory of God, and are always looking to welcome singers and musicians to join our dedicated worship team.
KEM youth is an exciting, lively and an interactive place for all children to enjoy making friends and learning about God. Our children are part of the main service during worship and then go off and have a great time learning about God in fun and energetic ways including music, stories, crafts and games.
We have a great program that follows the theme of the church to be brought down to the understanding of the different age groups:
• Creche (0-4)
• Brave Kids (5-11)
• United One (12-18)
We will register your children at the beginning of the service and you may be asked to complete a form for administrative and security purposes before their activities commence with us. It also gives us both a chance to meet each other before they join us during the service. All of our amazing team are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked so rest assured your kids are in safe hands.
We believe everyone has a God given skill or talent that can be very useful in Kingdom Exchange Ministries, and this is demonstrated by our hard-working volunteers in the various teams bringing a spirited edge to our service. From young to old, we encourage everyone to get involved in one of our teams where they could use their skills or talents to enhance one another and the body of Christ.
We have several teams that you can be part of on a Sunday morning and during the week.
Teams are a great place to make new friends and foster relationships, it is also very rewarding to lend yourself to the service of others. We arrange regular team socials outside of a Sunday meeting.
Included in our teams:
• Kids & Youth
Please speak to a team leader on a Sunday morning to discuss getting involved, or contact our office for more information.
Kingdom Exchange Ministries in partnership with BU Mentoring and Brompton Community Shop work together as the central outreach arm of the church delivering services to our community which is a fundamental part of Christendom to show the love of God to the less fortunate.
The partnership under our charity deals with food distribution throughout the week but predominantly on Saturdays.
This is open to anyone who can prove they are in a time of hardship and receiving some form of benefit.
KEM, in partnership with Brompton Community Shop is a charity initiative that caters to the needs of the local community especially the homeless and others in need. Well positioned on Brompton high street, it has become a meeting point for the needy and elderly. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and selfless in their approach to service, and during coffee mornings they are available to listen to any problems you may be facing and can direct you to external organisations which may be able to help you further.
We are currently seeking a location to start our soup kitchen, which will provide another opportunity for people who are either in times of hardship, homeless, or lonely, to have themselves a cooked breakfast in a warm and safe environment. This is a time where people can make and meet with friends or just sit and read a newspaper.
Cold Winter Shelter
During the winter months, Kingdom Exchange Ministries partners with other churches and organisations to offer people who are homeless a warm and safe place to sleep. It is part of the vision of the church to acquire a building which will serve as an overnight accommodation service for the homeless.
