For children

We love children at Cornerstone! Each Sunday there will be a crèche and a group for primary school aged children. Most often the children consider the same section of the bible that the adults will be looking at. All the children’s workers are Church Partners and DBS checked.

You're very welcome

Please do come and join us, we’d love to welcome you. You'll meet people with different backgrounds and stories. Many of those you'll meet have come to know the amazing good news of Jesus.

Who We Are

Cornerstone is part of the FIEC network of churches. The church was established in 2016 with the help of Christ Church Southampton.

We are convinced that Jesus is good news and want all people to know him more. We believe that the Bible is ultimately all about Jesus and so are committed to seeking to grasp all of its message. Each Sunday we focus on a different section of the Bible – normally as we work through a particular Bible book.

If you’ve been a Christian for some time or if the good news of Jesus is completely new to you – we believe the Bible will help you to grow, explore and find questions answered.
