We began as a group of 80 people in 1983, meeting in various places around town. Since then we have been on an amazing journey, including buying the old Army Drill Hall in 1995 and launching several community initiatives like Shrewsbury Food Bank. Our church family now has 300+ adult members and meets right by the river in Shrewsbury town centre.
We are part of a network of churches called Christ Central, with friendships stretching through Shropshire and across the north of England, and overseas. Christ Central is part of Newfrontiers, a worldwide family of churches. Being connected helps us to share resources and support each other.
See the Christ Central website here.
We want to have a personal relationship with Jesus and see Him at work in our lives. Our vision is to see people in our town and beyond come to know Jesus and be transformed by Him too. Listen to our vision talk here.
What makes us...
Our values are the things that make us tick, the church that we want to be. We TRUST in the bible as God’s word and ENCOUNTER Jesus. Our IDENTITY is in Christ and our aim is to live with INTEGRITY and to ENCOURAGE each other.
Our DEVOTION to God fuels the ADVENTURE we're on.
Check out our values video below.
Our Church is made up of people.
All sorts of different people.
What we have in common is faith.
Faith in Jesus Christ.
It is a personal faith in that each of us needs to make our own decision to follow Jesus. And yet when we have made that step, we are drawn together with others like us into this living, changing, dynamic thing called Church.
Our Church is not a meeting,
although we have Sunday meetings.
Our Church is not a building,
although we have a Church centre.
Our Church is a fellowship, a coming together in unity, of followers of Jesus.
We are not the focus, Jesus is.
