In times where the traditional support structures of home and family are often stretched by family breakup and
distance, Christ Church seeks to provide an inclusive community of wholeness where people can be welcomed,
befriended and supported. We believe that by following Jesus' example and teachings, we can practically and
spiritually demonstrate the power of his teaching by what we say and do.
We try to seek a balance between supporting local charities and projects overseas and reflect this in the various organisations we sponsor.
Locally we welcome people new to Swindon, engage with those moving into the new estates at Angel Ridge and Okus. Along with our local partners we also hope to establish a temporary presence at Wichelstowe.
We also have several overseas mission partners.
Established in 1969, the partnership has always sought to work together on clergy training,
pastoral work, social work and work with young people. All publicity, including the Parish Magazine
and Directory is run by the Council. You can .
As a partnership of churches in Old Town, over the years we have successfully embarked upon a
number of fund raising projects to help people both in this country and overseas; some of you might
remember raising money to build a school at Kagitumba! In 2013 we have launched another project,
this time in conjunction with Christian Aid.
The European Union has promised to match any funding
we raise by three times, out of their funds! In order to do this we have pledged to raise £5,000
in the partnership which will then be worth £20,000. We have chosen the Middle East Project
to help improve the amenities for disabled people in Palestine and Lebanon.
