Vicar's welcome

imageWelcome to our church website!

The Church of the Good Shepherd (ChoGS to us) is based in Cox Green Community Centre. Whilst we may not have a beautiful church building we enjoy being a church at the heart of our community.

Week by week, as we meet together, we are reminded that the Church is not about the building but the people, us – the living stones of Christ’s Church. During the week our church is present amidst all the hustle and bustle of the Community Centre, and the many groups that meet there. In contrast, on Sunday mornings, and at other special times in the Christian calendar, we have the Community Centre to ourselves, with all the many facilities available to us.   We hope that those who come here, or visit us, find a vibrant and welcoming church community where they can make friends and feel at home; a church where we seek to support one another in good times and bad, journeying in faith together.

As part of the Diocese of Oxford we are delighted to have been awarded the diocesan ‘family-friendly church’ award. We are proud to be a Fairtrade Church and we are also part of the Inclusive Church network ( reflecting our desire to be a church where everyone is welcome.

Do enjoy browsing our website to find out more about life at the Good Shepherd and feel free to phone or email us with any questions, or for further information. We hope we’ve given you a ‘flavour’ of our church but, better still, join us for one of our groups or services. We are here to serve you, and all those in our parish and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you!

Every blessing,
