- where everyone can grow
At Cornerstone Community Church we provide compassion ministries and share the Good News of Jesus, to form new believing communities, where people can develop a life of worship and prayer, and do personal ministry within the life of the church and in the wider community. We learn to be a disciple and how to disciple others. We provide a range of services including:
• Weekend and online services
Our Sunday services start 11am with Bible lessons. From 12.30pm we have vibrant worship, and a sermon from the Bible relating to our times and lives. Bible study and prayer is on Wednesday at 7.30pm. We also provide online services.
• Home and overseas missions
We lead and take part in a range of home missions from BBQs in local park, through play schemes, to youth activities across Dudley. In Czech Republic we partner in the running of a children's summer programme and a music and singing project with schools and the community in the autumn. We also support youth camps and those in need in Russia, as well as missions in Tenerife, Jamaica and Africa.
Foodbank is run by volunteers and is set up to help those in need. It operates in away that helps to retain people’s dignity but also to help them back on their feet.
• Soup kitchen
We run Nourish Soup kitchen on Wednesdays 4-6pm, for people and their families who otherwise may go hungry, as well as for people who would like to have a conversation or may feel isolated and alone.
High Oak is a social action project that supports people in positive personal growth and to get involved in social action to improve their community and their own lives. In partnership with organisations HOYCC works with volunteers, hard to reach, the disengaged and communities.
• Guidance and Bible study
The Bible is God’s Word. It is the highest authority and basis that we use to provide moral guidance for people and explore and answer all of life’s challenging questions.
• Small group ministry
Relationships are great for mutual growth and development. Small groups of people come together in the same cell group for a variety of reasons from having similar interests to living in the same area.
“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”
“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
• Sharing your story
When God changes our hearts, we can share our story of the transforming power of the words, teachings, and power of Jesus Christ. Share your story or be encouraged by someone else’s story.
• Water baptism of believers
After believing in Jesus as Lord and Saviour, the next vital step in the believer’s faith is water baptism. It is a public declaration of one’s faith, in identifying with Jesus’ death and resurrection and in proclaiming the resurrection and new life.
• Pre-marital and marriage counselling
For couples considering marriage or already married, we offer pre-marital and marriage counselling to help build a strong biblical foundation for sharing life together. We help couples to dialogue around expectations for their future and responsibilities according to God’s design for the covenant of marriage.
• Baby dedications
We dedicate babies and children to the Lord through prayer and blessing, until they come to an age when they decide to believe and be baptised.
• Funeral services for loved ones
Losing a loved one is never easy, that’s why we are here to share our condolences and make sure you receive the support and guidance you need to say goodbye and add to your precious memories.
• Facilities for hire
We have a community centre that is open to the public for private and community events (there is a rental fee).
