Building for Growth

Our strategic location in the centre of the global city of Oxford gives us a wonderful base from which to reach many with the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and then send them out equipped to serve him all over the world. On Sunday and midweek, St Ebbe’s had become full to overflowing and so we embarked on an ambitious building project (with we have called Building for Growth).


The project includes:

  • The installation a 200-seat gallery
  • Improvements to kitchen facilities
  • The acquisition of a nearby building (previously a burlesque/pole-dancing club)
  • The purchase of the current rectory
Building for Growth: Latest news

Having been out of the church building for 8 months we are now back. The balcony is completed and is already filling up. The nightclub has been purchased and renovation is in progress. You can see some photos below.

We plan to upgrade the kitchen during the summer of 2018 – and purchase the Rectory in due course.

Please continue to pray for the completion of the project. Funds are also still needed.
