Sermons and prayers on the ‘Articles & Sermons’ page are selected to give an idea of the sort of Christian outlook the church has. They are the minister’s sermons, so they don’t necessarily express the religious outlook of every member, but the minister wouldn’t be in post if the members disagreed too much with them!
Temple Cowley URC is one of eight United Reformed Churches in the Oxford area. During the 1930s it became a spiritual and social home for many who came seeking work at the nearby Morris car plant (now home to the new BMW Mini). Many of them were Welsh, but the Welsh connections are now largely dissolved. Many migrant workers still come to Oxford however, and Cowley is now home for many different nationalities, and has a large number of students, mostly from Oxford Brookes University and the many language schools in the area.
