Our vision

To be a strong and welcoming Christian family, making disciples of Jesus Christ and serving the people of Towersey

With our newly refurbished church building we have plans in place to turn that vision into reality as we seek to become more Christ-like in the way we live as individuals and as a church 


We plan to develop new ways of using the church building to encourage prayer and reflection. This might include:
  • Prayer spaces in church.
  • Encouraging use of the church for prayer and reflection.
  • Develop links with visitors to the village.


We plan to explore new ways to meet the spiritual needs of our community. This might include:
  • Baptism families
  • Those who have been bereaved
  • Connections with other community groups


We plan to find new ways to use the new facilities in our church building. This might include:
  • New regular opportunities for families with young children to worship God.
  • One-off events to celebrate Christian festivals
  • A mid-week Toddler and Carer group.
