Christ Church Stantonbury
HOW WE STARTED
The Christ Church fellowship started on Easter Day, 1975 with a group of 10 adults and children meeting in the Stantonbury Community House.
By the end of the year, the fellowship had moved to its present premises, the new Christ Church Centre on Stantonbury Campus.
At Easter 1990, we opened an extension to the building at Christ Church, which gave us for the first time, a purpose–built sanctuary alongside the existing community hall.
Christ Church is the oldest ecumenical congregation within the Parish of Stantonbury, which covers the northeast of Milton Keynes.
We invite all to discover the love of God, through prayer, worship, reflecting on the bible and the world around us.
We have a variety of worship styles, led in our later service by a music group. We are made up of people from Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, United Reformed and other Christian backgrounds and enjoy sharing that variety together.
We find inspiration in the life of Jesus, following his example and seeking to be transformed and to transform the world around us by the help of the Holy Spirit.
We meet on Sundays and during the week in small groups of all ages and for different activities in order to learn together, support one another and share our experiences.
We are an inclusive church, welcoming all to share in our life and involving ourselves in the life of the community. We work alongside our local parish council and support the schools in our area and, along with the other congregations in Stantonbury Ecumenical Partnership, work together on city wide projects.
We have links with various aid and missionary agencies and are a fair trade church.
