In September 2019 we begin a new local church gathering for the area of Cowley. It will meet in the former Temple Cowley URC building on Oxford Road, near to Templars Square shopping centre.
This new church will be led by Ben Vane, a Church of England minister who joined the St Ebbe’s team in April. Ben and his family moved from St Thomas Oakwood in North London where he was curate for four years.
The Littlegate Trust purchased the former URC building in Temple Cowley in 2018 and has offered it to St Ebbe’s for a new church plant.
We hope to launch this new church gathering in September 2019 and we are now gathering the launch team who will form it. Some of the key dates in the run up to the launch include:
- Every Tuesday, 7:45 for 8pm: Prayer meeting (except school holidays and Downtown Central Prayer Meeting weeks)
- Tuesdays 14th May, 11th June and 9th July, 7:45 for 8pm: Update & idea sharing
- Saturday 18th May, 9am-1pm: DIY morning and lunch
- Saturdays 15th June and 6th July: Team social
- Sunday 1st September, 9:45am Downtown & 7pm Headington: Commissioning services
All events are at the Temple Cowley church building unless otherwise stated.
We want all kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds and ages and stages to form this new church family. We also need people with all kinds of gifts and experience – children’s workers, welcomers, hospitality team, cooks, musicians, befrienders, people to pray, DIY enthusiasts!
If you’re interested in thinking whether you should be part of this new church family, please drop Ben a line. He’d love to chat to you more.
