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. To this end we run the Alpha Course on a regular basis. We also 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. Two years ago we ran a project for North Devon against Domestic Abuse, last year we supported the charity WORK – Women and Orphans in Rural Kenya. This year we are fundraising for two local charities Go North Devon and North Devon Hospice.
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.
