Welcome to our website, on which we aim to tell you about our church and community here in Winchester. Please read and enjoy our pages.
Our church has its foundation in the Methodist traditions and is one of ten churches in the Winchester and Eastleigh Circuit.
However, we have strong ecumenical links with the other churches serving the northern part of Winchester and seek to serve the whole community in which we are located.
We seek to be a loving, serving, worshipping and witnessing community of Christians. We believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and recognise both the work and the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Our mission is to:
proclaim the good news of God's Kingdom;
teach and baptise new believers;
nurture new and existing believers;
respond to human need by contributing loving service to the communities we serve.
The church is pursuing an inspirational five year plan which supports its mission objectives and builds on existing work to enhance its offerings to the local community. The principal projects include:
Identifying, researching and discovering unmet local need.
Developing our ability to share our faith with those who haven't heard.
Improving the prayer life of the church.
Nurturing, promoting and supporting small hospitable groups of people who will explore things of faith and grow spitiually.
Ensuring that the church building is improved to support the above plans.
