Dear Friend, 

Over the past 4 years (April 2018-April 2022) we have collectively given over £300,000 through our 2020 offering and now through Legacy Builders. 

This has been wisely invested into; our locations, our buildings, practically serving 100’s of families and 1000’s of people, leadership training, world partnership ministries across many continents and countries, and ministry expansion. To God be the glory. 

This has not been done from 1000’s of people in a city location, but from 100’s of people in unknown locations! 

Proverbs 29:18 says that “Without a vision people perish,” or another version says “without a compelling vision people cast off restraint”. People wander aimlessly. 

Vision is powerful but when we get a God Vision this becomes unstoppable!

Legacy Builders is centered around people who have grasped a God given vision and are willing to plant significant ADDITIONAL finance into the vision that will leave a legacy in people for decades to come!

Thank you for your partnership with us in this Legacy Builders ministry. You will see an update of what was achieved and where the money was invested over the next few pages. 


You can give weekly, monthly, annually or in whatever frequency you would like but please ensure when you give that you clearly mark on the envelope or on your online payment “LEGACY” so that we can ensure this money is restricted for this purpose. The easiest way to give is to set up a standing order if you are able. The bank details for standing orders or one-off giving are:-

Account: Arena Church
Sort Code: 40-25-29
Account No: 61477196
Reference: LEGACY

The world of the generous gets larger and larger;

the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;

those who help others are helped.

Curses on those who drive a hard bargain!

Blessings on all who play fair and square!


Proverbs 11:24-26 MSG

In total we are believing for £130,500

Can I be bold?

Would you consider giving as you have done previously or for some give even more! We will need around £100,000 this year so an additional £30,000 on last year. This will enable us to not only maintain what we are presently doing but also do so much more!

I’ve had the privilege and joy of sitting with numbers of very Godly senior and seasoned Church leaders. Numbers of them are now elderly and even some have been promoted to glory! Every time I asked them this question I received the same few answers.

I asked “If you had your time again in Christian ministry, what would you do differently?”

Their answers… “I would take more risks, I would push the limits of faith more, I would pray more, I would give more, I would spend more time discipling and training leaders, I would be more courageous.” 

Let’s not live with the same regrets or thoughts of what could have been. 

We still have time!

So let’s sow, give, plant and pray. Believing for people, lives, families, communities and nations to be changed by Jesus; knowing that we played our part!

We love and appreciate you all and again we thank you for standing with us as we plant the seeds of Legacy!

If I can help you in any way or you have any questions then please feel free to reach out to me! 

Take courage, Kristian and Caroline Thorpe.
