Welcome! We are a small urban community church with a BIG heart, part of the Anglican Parish of West Cheltenham, that includes St. Barnabas, and St. Mark. Check out our weekly Sunday Notice sheets, 'Hear & Now' Newsheets.
We have a friendly, fun feel, and meet whenever we can, but especially every Sunday at 10.30am in The Oasis Centre GL51 7SY, on Coronation Square. We look forward to visitors and provide clear service sheets and instructions.
We hope people can feel they belong first, and each person's faith is encouraged to flourish at their own pace.
Our strap line is: 'Encouraging Faith in People', for we want people to believe in the living God, in Christ, but we also want to believe in people as well. We seek to be encouraging like Aidan, faithful like Silas, and just like Jesus.
Our approach to safeguarding:
Safeguarding is about ensuring we have a culture of safety and welfare around activities we undertake in West Cheltenham. It is about promoting the best possible care for children, young people and adults, preventing abuse from occurring, protecting those who are at risk of abuse, and identifying and responding to abuse where it has occurred. Where someone may present a risk to others, it is also about us being ready to support them whilst effectively acting to mitigate any risks.
