The Mayor of Ely Lis Every attended the event, held on Saturday, as well as local councillors and Pastor Billy Onen.
“Fantastic afternoon as we celebrated the birthday and launch of ECC,” wrote the church on social media.
“An honour to have the Mayor of the city of Ely and other councillors, most of our pastors from our sister churches in UK and all our families and friends come along.
“It was such an awesome time, great to see you and thank you for standing with us,” the post added.
