Cornerstone Church


We give you a warm welcome to the Cornerstone Church website which we hope will provide you with all you need to know us and tell you how you can contact us.

Hot news: our application to be a charity has been successful, so Cornerstone Church is now Registered Charity no. 1163367.

You can now make donations quickly and simply through PayPal. Just go to the foot of this page.

The church began in 1954 when a Sunday school was established, meeting in what is now the Leaf Academy (formerly Oakmead School) with over 300 children attending. The current church hall was built while the surrounding housing estate was being developed and was opened on October 13th 1956 as West Howe Baptist Church (you can view a video of the original opening here). In March 2010 the church changed its name to Cornerstone Church as an expression of its mission to build the lives of local people upon the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ (see Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4-10), and its desire to be a cornerstone of the local community. 

Cornerstone Church is a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Evangelical Alliance, and the BAYLink.
