Christ Church Mission Statement:
Christ Church seeks to express the love of Christ for everyone.
Christians believe that God sent his Son Jesus Christ to show us the purpose of life. Through his life, death and resurrection we believe we have been given a way to understand God. We believe the Holy Spirit of God is with Christians day by day to show us how to live.
We desire to help people know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. We desire to witness to the compassion of Christ for the disadvantaged.
To this end we have run Church projects to raise both awareness and money to address both Third World and local need. For the last two years we have been fundraising for two local charities Go North Devon and North Devon Hospice.
It was agreed at Church Meeting on 19th January 2020 that we would fundraise this year for Water Aid.
Rev Don Macalister can also tell you about the new Community Links Programme which is part of of our mission to working with the local community.
Christ Church, Barnstaple (Methodist/United Reformed) seeks to be an ecumenical, town centre church bearing witness to the evangelical and social justice traditions of the Christian Faith on it’s expression of the love of Christ for people of all ages.
