Welcome to the Parish of Cowley : 

Working to bring life in fullness to all who live, work and study in Cowley and the local area

As part of the Cowley Christian community we are here to serve the community as a whole - children and older people, students and workers, believers and those who are searching. We would love to meet you and hear how your journey in life might meet ours. Things are challenging in these difficult times but sometimes meeting up face to face is important. We are working to ensure that we have some 'Face to Face' Sunday  services and that the Church is open on Wednesday afternoons. If a face to face meeting is what you really need do call Geoff on 01865778596.

Coffee mornings on Zoom

With the changing pattern of life this has become a drop in! You can arrange to meet a friend here, and might meet up with other by chance. If nobody is around wait a while and see if other turn up. With the changing needs you might find one of the ministers but often they will out on other duties. But do enjoy the space.

Same link for every meeting each Tuesday and Saturday at 11am click here

Living well through the next six months

Living with COVID-19 will be hard for everyone this winter. The Prime Minister has asked us all to observe the Rule of Six. There are lessons and challenges that Christians can draw from this number to help us live well in these times. BIshop Steven offers us some hope and direction in these challenging times. LInk
