Church of the Good Shepherd (ChoGS to us) is based in Cox Green Community
Centre. Whilst we may not have a beautiful church building we enjoy being a
church at the heart of our community.
by week, as we meet together, we are reminded that the Church is not about the
building but the people, us – the living stones of Christ’s Church. During the
week our church is present amidst all the hustle and bustle of the Community
Centre, and the many groups that meet there. In contrast, on Sunday mornings,
and at other special times in the Christian calendar, we have the Community
Centre to ourselves, with all the many facilities available to us. We hope that those who come here, or visit
us, find a vibrant and welcoming church community where they can make friends
and feel at home; a church where we seek to support one another in good times
and bad, journeying in faith together.
part of the Diocese of Oxford we are delighted
to have been awarded the diocesan ‘family-friendly church’ award. We are proud to be a
Fairtrade Church and we are also part of the Inclusive Church network
(http://inclusive-church.org/) reflecting our desire to be a church where
everyone is welcome.
enjoy browsing our website to find out more about life at the Good Shepherd and
feel free to phone or email us with any questions, or for further information. We hope we’ve given
you a ‘flavour’ of our church but, better still, join us for one of our groups
or services. We are here to serve you, and all those in our parish and beyond.
We look forward to welcoming you!
