Our Vision

"Our vision is to bring the full life of Jesus to all, to grow as a community of his followers, to deepen our faith, and to be grateful for God's gifts as we use them wisely."

WORSHIP

Christ Church Henley  is part of the United Reformed Church in the UK. We are a community of Christians – that is,  together with Christians all over the world, we belong to, love, serve and trust the living Lord Jesus Christ, and aim to live for Him and make Him known. To know more about who Jesus really is and why He is the most important person in global history  click here.  

We meet every Sunday (click here for details) to gather around the Bible and offer thanks and praise to Jesus, to learn from His word, and to re-centre our lives on Him – all based on a solid Christian foundation. We extend a warm invitation to you to join us and to enjoy a ‘meet and greet our members‘ over refreshments afterwards. 

Christ Church Henley was born in 1662, click here to read about our fascinating history and how since then we have been continuing to worship through our wider work in the Henley community. 

CARING

Christ Church Henley is a ‘family‘. We care for one another and for the community around us. We do this through using our Christ Church Centre to offer delicious meals and open days for coffee with friends and an opportunity to socialize. Hospital visits are undertaken for those who are ill. We value opportunities to develop friendships and hold many social events as we celebrate highlights in the Christian calendar such as Christmas, Harvest, Easter.

Our Busy Bees program is ideal for anyone with a hand-crafting skill who would love to join us for a friendship building opportunity and to avoid loneliness.  We also run a support group for those who have been bereaved.   

Our home-groups are an ideal way to forge friendships and generate a support network as we study the Bible together in an informal environment.  

 

EVANGELISM

We follow the instructions of Jesus by engaging actively in a variety of events where we can reach out to our community to spread the good news of the gospel. We tell people about Jesus and Christianity and encourage them to think about their faith and how they respond to the message. We are active members of Churches Together in Henley and support all their events. 

DISCIPLING

Discipling is crucial to deepen our faith and to growth as a community of His followers.  We run in-depth Bible teaching in our Henley Bible School and have a number of home-groups. Our elders also have a full program of visiting and encouraging the church members under their care.  

Children hold a very special place in our hearts and we run a creative and fun “MESSY CHURCH” once a month to teach Christian principles in a non-forgettable way. 

 

What some of ‘our church family’ members say

“In today’s world with so much “fake Christianity” going around, I really appreciate the solid teaching that we get at Christ Church from our Minister – Glyn Millington. And, coupled with a very friendly community, this is a great church to attend.”

Heather Mckibbin

 

I was really excited by the prospect of being part of a home group. I joined Christ Church because I was looking for a local, friendly church that was Bible focused. I found that at Christ Church. I’ve made real friends that I can call ‘My family‘”

I was delighted that I was able to use my home church, Christ Church Henley, as the venue for my wedding ceremony. It was ideal and provided just the right ambience from which Jaco and I could start our married life together.
