Cheam is a suburb of south London, within the London Borough of Sutton. It is 11 miles South West of Charing Cross, it is divided into two main areas, North Cheam and Cheam Village, both of which are centred on retail districts. Cheam Village has many listed buildings, including Lumley Chapel and the 16th-century Whitehall, is adjacent to two large adjoining parks, Nonsuch Park and Cheam Park. Nonsuch Park contains the listed Nonsuch Mansion. Parts of Cheam Park and Cheam Village are in a conservation area. Cheam is bordered by Worcester Park to the north-west, Morden to the north-east, Sutton to the east, Ewell to the west and Banstead and Belmont to the south; the Roman road of Stane Street forms part of the boundary of Cheam. The modern London Road at North Cheam follows the course of the Roman road through the area, it is designated A24. The village lay within the Anglo-Saxon administrative division of Wallington hundred. Cheam is mentioned in the Charters of Chertsey Abbey in 727, which mentions Cheam being given to the monastery of Chertsey in 675.
However, the Charters are now regarded as obvious fabrications. The name'Cheam', based on Cegeham, may mean'village or homestead by the tree-stumps'. Cheam appears in Domesday Book as Ceiham. Held by Archbishop Lanfranc of Canterbury, its Domesday assets were four hides, one church, 17 ploughs, 1-acre of meadow, woodland worth 25 hogs, it rendered £14. In the Middle Ages, Cheam had potteries, recent excavations have been carried out by archaeologists. In 1259, Henry III of England made Cheam a town by charter. In 1538, part of Cheam was handed over to Henry VIII; the same year, Henry began work on Nonsuch Palace. This was sold and demolished. In 1801, the time of the first census, Cheam had a population of 616 Cheamonians. Records of Cheam Charter Fair date back to the 1800s. Cheam was the original home of Cheam School, formed in Whitehall in 1645 and occupied Tabor Court from 1719 until 1934 when the school moved to Berkshire. Prince Philip attended the school in Cheam in the years preceding its move.
Every year on 15 May the Cheam Charter Fair is held. It is thought to date back to 1259. Firm historical records of Cheam Charter Fair date back to the 1800s when a fairground accompanied the market. Cheam Village is centred on the crossroads between North Cheam, South Cheam and Ewell; as well as bus services, it is served by Cheam mainline station, in London Travelcard Zone 5 and one stop from Sutton, about a mile away, two from Epsom, about three miles away.

Whitehall is a timber weatherboarded house in the centre of Cheam Village, it was built in about 1500 as a wattle and daub yeoman farmer's house but has been much extended. The external weatherboard dates from the 18th century. In the garden there is a medieval well. Now an historic house museum, the building features a period kitchen, house details from the Georgian and Edwardian eras; the museum temporarily closed in 2016 to allow for a £1.6m refurbishment of the building.

In addition to prophetic seminars, the church runs a School of Ministry, open to all believers; the Word of Faith emphasis adhered to by LWCF is widespread within Pentecostal and charismatic churches.
It has created controversy in theological circles of academia. One of the earliest critics of the teaching was Oral Roberts University Professor Charles Farah, who published From the Pinnacle of the Temple in 1979. In the book, Farah expressed his disillusionment with the teachings, which he argued were more about presumption than faith. In 1982, one of Farah's students, Daniel Ray McConnell, submitted a thesis to the faculty at Oral Roberts University arguing against E. W. Kenyon, Kenneth Hagin and the doctrines of the Word of Faith. Other critics have included Norman Geisler, Dave Hunt and Roger Oakland. There is support for the Word of Faith teaching. Frederick K. C. Price of Crenshaw Christian Center, a Word of Faith proponent, wrote Faith and Presumption to redress the balance on the genre teaching. LWCF website Keep the Faith magazine
