St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Goring St Andrew's Church in South Stoke St Mary's Church in Streatley

In more normal times...

...you are warmly welcome to come to church at any stage of Christian understanding, whether you are a firm believer or simply interested in finding out more. You may have moved into the area recently. You may be a visitor passing by. Maybe you have been through a difficult time and feel in need of some spiritual support, or perhaps you have lived nearby for a long while but the time hasn't seemed right till now. Whatever the reason, just come to one of the services. Christianity is about developing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and in community with other people.

Walking through the doors of a new church takes courage but be assured that you will be well received. Everyone of all nationalities, interests, ages and backgrounds is welcome. We pray that your encounter with one of these churches will develop your faith and meet your needs at a deep level. Spend some time in these beautiful places of Christian worship. Many people feel a sense of inner peace and joy in church, that may escape us in our usual world.

Attending church regularly may help you discover a new purpose in life, a new direction. If you live in the local area, do consider joining a small home group to explore your faith further. Other Christians can guide and support you in your journey of faith.

However much we may stumble and fall in life, know always that God's eternal love, mercy and compassion are available to each one of us, as we turn to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ.
