We would love to welcome you! Join one of our services, and if you are new, do introduce yourself to one of the clergy or service leaders and fill in a Welcome Card (we have them in every church building). We would love to meet you! We meet each Sunday in three buildings – Clifton Parish Church, St Mark’s, Rawcliffe and Clifton Moor Community Church. Our services are held on Sunday mornings and evenings – with other events taking place during the week – and we encourage everyone to be part of one of our Small Groups, which take place in people’s homes.
We want to reach everyone who lives, works or studies in Clifton Parish with the Good News of Jesus, so that they can come into a living relationship with Him, providing clear stepping stones of faith for everyone. We will give everyone the opportunity to grow in the likeness of Jesus through our outreach, our worship, our love shown in action. We want to see the numbers attending all our services grow as people are drawn together in fellowship and community.
We love having new people in our services and we love to visit people in their homes too. So please don’t hesitate to ask if you need anything. We want to attract and disciple large numbers of all ages, from young children to senior citizens, through activities which are Rooted in the Word of God – Centred on the Son of God – Open to the Spirit of God – Biblically Strong – Prayerfully Committed – Communally United – Missionally Courageous.
There can often seem a lot going on, but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask one of us. The best way to know What’s On, is through our main website. We also produce a twice weekly e-mail (info2you). If you are not on the mailing list, we need your permission to use your e-mail address, so do let the office know your details! We also have a newsletter that we give out at our services so you can pick one of these up when you visit us. We would love to do life together with you!
My name is Andrew Gready, and l was born in South Africa to missionary parents, who were working for USPG. In all, I have spent 25 years living and working in Southern Africa – my heart is still very much African! I have also spent 25 years living in various parts of the UK and I have also spent just over 5 years in The Netherlands, and with Marion being Dutch. We have been involved in church planting, in building redevelopment, in community renewal and in international outreach. Ministry has been a real privilege and very exciting.
Together, we are committed to building community, to making the Church accessible for all, and to issues of social justice in our society. Marion brings very special gifts of hospitality, of worship and of gentleness, that compliment mine of leadership, of mission-focus, and of pastoral care.
If you'd like to be loved and belong - come along, we'd love to meet you!
