On Sundays

Most Sundays we meet at Thameside School, starting at 10.30am.

We would love to welcome you, so please do visit us one Sunday!

We aim to finish the service by 12:15 all are then welcome to stay for tea or coffee afterwards, which is a great opportunity to get to know people and enjoy fellowship together. Please note, there are occassions when we join with other churches to meet elsewhere, and there is therefore no meeting at Thameside.  Many apologies if you ahve come looking for us and we are away!


Our Leaders

Following the untimely death of our Pastor Ed Evans, Duncan Graham is the acting Lead Elder

and Michael Ivey is the assistant Pastor.


What happens on a Sunday at ACC?

We will have a time of praise and worship and spend time studying the Bible and seeing how this can relate practically to our every day lives. We are keen to hear what God has to say to us and encourage each other to share if God has given us something in particular for the meeting. Our preaching programme will tell you more about what we may be looking at each week but as we always want to make sure we are open to the Holy Spirit what we plan may change if God leads us in a different direction!


During the service we run a creche and groups for our children and youth. See our children and youth section for more information. 


It would be lovely to see you on a Sunday morning but if you are not used to coming to church and feel a bit nervous about walking in on your own or need help with transport, please Contact Us and we'll be glad to help and make things easier for you. 


As mentioned above, we sometimes meet up with the other churches for a celebration in Oxford or Didcot instead of meeting in Abingdon. Celebrations are times when our wider church family comes together to praise and worship God and to receive encouragement and direction for our churches. During these times, we run a full programme of children's and youth work. When there is a celebration coming up, there will be more details on our events page.

Sundays when we will not be at Thameside:

26th January 2020 - There will be a OpenGate Churhces Celebration in St Birinus School, Didcot
