We are Redeemer Winchester, a new church plant meeting in the Guildhall in the centre of Winchester.

At Redeemer we’re passionate about serving the people of Winchester and the surrounding area. We want to give everyone the opportunity to encounter JESUS in His Word, to experience a loving COMMUNITY and to be equipped to live all of LIFE under Christ.

Our Gospel VISION

Redeemer Winchester exists to give every person in Winchester and the surrounding area the opportunity to encounter Jesus, experience community and be equipped to live all of their life under Christ.


encounter   Jesus

Jesus Christ is good news. He is good news for broken, sinful people and He is good news for a damaged world. Jesus came into the world to make God known, to establish God’s life-giving rule and to freely offer forgiveness and salvation to anyone who trusts in Him. Because of this, we are committed to teaching the Bible so that we can know the truth, beauty, goodness and necessity of Jesus. We realise not everyone is convinced about Jesus, so Redeemer is also a place where people can ask their questions and explore His claims.


Jesus brings us into a wonderful community as a church family. We want to express this by sharing our whole lives with one another, not just our Sundays. God also sends His church into local communities, so we are committed to serving Winchester and the surrounding area. We want to invest our lives in this area, help those in need, and contribute to the progress and flourishing of this community.

experience community


equipped for life

Jesus doesn’t just save us for life in eternity. He also saves us for life now. The gospel enhances every area of life, and through His Word Jesus equips us to live our whole lives for His glory and the good of others. With this in mind, we’re committed to preaching systematically through the whole Bible and letting Jesus’ words shape our entire worldview. We aim to preach all of Christ, for all of life, from all of Scripture.
