General information

When and where does the church meet?

We meet every Sunday at 10.30am.  Our church building is on the corner of Temple Road and Oxford Road (which becomes Cowley Road).  We're next to Cowley Library, opposite Cowley Police Station and Temple Cowley Medical Centre:

Grace Church Cowley
Oxford Rd
Oxford
OX4 2ES

Is there parking?

Parking is limited in our small car park and we encourage people to a walk or cycle if possible. A covered bike rack is available at the front of the Emmaus building next door, which Emmaus kindly let us use. The closest car park is at Templars Shopping Park which is about a 5 minute walk. However, Temple Cowley Health Centre, right opposite us on Temple Road, have generously let us use their spaces on Sundays. Please only park in spaces marked, "Health Centre Staff."

What can I expect if I come to church?

Our service runs for about an hour and is very informal. Be sure to look out for our welcome team as you come in: as well as welcoming you, they'll be able to explain how things work and where to go. No prior knowledge is assumed and we won’t ask you to say or pray anything you don’t believe, or force you to do anything you’re not comfortable doing.

Some people have the idea that you need to be ‘sorted out’ before you can come to church. That's not true at all - the truth is that Jesus came for people with mess in their lives. We want you to feel at home and enjoy the service.

What happens to the kids at church?

Childrens groups are available for pre-school children (combined Creche and Woddlers for 3+) and primary school children 4+ (Trekkers) at every service, apart from our monthly all-age service.

There is a baby feeding room with a sound and video relay of the service.

Is there a dress code at church?

No!  Just wear whatever you normally wear!

I have more questions; how can I get in touch?
