Welcome to the Parish of Cowley. Bringing Christianity to life. 

As part of the Cowley Christian community we are here to serve the community as a whole - children and older people, students and workers, believers and those who are searching. We would love to meet you and hear how your journey in life might meet ours. You can meet us for worship, at a lunch club, in a home group, at the Community Food Bank or just drop in for a chat.
