We want to see the social, emotional, physical and spiritual transformation of Cutteslowe. We hope to share God's love with those who need our help, particularly young people and their families. We aim to provide care and compassion in practical and supportive ways, where people are accepted and empowered to make informed life choices.
Cutteslowe is an area of socio-economic deprivation in North Oxford. St Andrew's has been working on the estate for over 10 years and is committed to community transformation on this estate. Our long-term vision is to see a self-supporting worshiping community on the Cutteslowe estate.
We have a particular concern for the young people of this estate and desire to share God's love with them and their families through practical supportive ways. We run a number of weekly groups and activities that provide opportunities for these young people, a safe place to have fun, learn, be challenged, resolve issues and find Christ.
