About The Christopher Shoemaker Christian Centre

A Haven for the Soul, a Beacon of Faith

What is the vision for The Christopher Shoemaker Christian Centre?

What is it?

It's a place where people of faith and none can come to meet and be met by Jesus.

A place for healing and the arts, the Word and a kind word.

A resource to the church and a haven for those who need a safe space.

It's a light among the lights in Newbury. Adding to the brilliance of God's presence in West Berkshire.


A place of hope, of salvation, of discipleship, of joy and peace.

It's a community of communities. A place where the church in Newbury can join together to serve.

It will be the powerhouse for the church. A place of common prayer and praise... 

calling on the power and presence of God in a new old way


This vision doesn't belong to any one person or group. It is a vision and living prayer for His people seeking the will of God.
