Emmanuel Church Oxford
We love Oxford. We love the creativity, beauty and diversity that can be found here – from Blackbird Leys to Summertown, from the universities to the MINI Plant. We think everything good points to the Creator who made it, and so we want to celebrate and support what’s good about Oxford when we see it. And where things could be better we want to serve and support those who are working to improve them.
We want to help those seeking faith to learn about and meet their Creator through Jesus Christ. We want to provide a great environment for people to connect with God. And we think the best way to do that is with others, which is why we gather together on Sunday mornings and scatter throughout the city in Connect Groups during the week.
We believe the church should make the city a better place to live, and so we support projects and people who are trying to make life here better for everyone - particularly the poor. We’re already involved with serving refugees, helping people gain employment and contributing to the local foodbank, and we’re always looking for more ways to serve.
And we encourage people use to their gifts and passions in a way that brings our city to life – whether in the arts, medicine, education, academia, business or anywhere else. We want to see Oxford flourish, and we want to play our part in that by connecting faith with everyday life.
