Mission & Values
PEACE to the CITY
The vision and prayer of New Road Baptist Church, Oxford
Located in the centre of the city, in Bonn Square,
this congregation is committed to
praying and working
for the peace and well-being of the city
through worship, witness and service .
This vision and mission is based on the Good News that “Christ is our Peace”.
a new relationship has been opened up between humanity and God
breaking down the wall of contempt between people
and all things in heaven and on earth are being reconciled into God – who is the source and end of all life.
Practically this means that in this place, where a congregation has met for over 350 years:
The peace of God, Father Son and Holy Spirit,
is explored and experienced in worship
is celebrated and deepened through life together in community and
is lived out in costly acts of compassion and hospitality
All are welcome.
We are committed to being followers of Jesus Christ. We have a broad, inclusive and life-affirming theology and believe in the “life in all its fullness” that Christ offers.
