Winchester, the ancient capital of England, is an important regional centre. It is home to key institutions including the county and city council headquarters, the University of Winchester, Winchester School of Arts and the Crown Courts, all of which make the city a vibrant and bustling hub.
There are over 50,000 people living in Winchester and a further 60,000 in the wider region. We estimate that fewer than 5% are regularly attending a church. The need is enormous and the best way to meet that need is by planting a church that can work alongside other churches in Winchester to reach the city and the wider region.
Seeing the need is one thing; being able to do something about it is another. We have a church planter, a growing launch team of adults who are committed to Winchester and a sending church (Christ Church Southampton) that is fully supportive. We are ready to plant.
If you would like to join the launch team, pray for the church plant or give to the church plant, then please click here to express your interest.
