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.
