Welcome to the Church of Christ the Cornerstone where five denominations work together, sharing the same space and a commitment to serve the people of Milton Keynes. We are a diverse community discovering and growing in the Christian faith. We experience God’s love and are challenged to live that love and share it with the wider community.
The Church and Chapel are open seven days a week for private prayer and public worship.

Cornerstone and coronavirus: Suspension of public worship: 17 March 2020

Following the recommendations of all our denominational churches, please note that public worship at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone has been suspended with immediate effect until further notice. This will of course have some effect on us as individuals and especially the pastoral care that we provide. Nevertheless, it is imperative that we make the safety of all our members a primary focus of our response, and so it is with a heavy heart that we suspend services.
Every blessing,
George and Ernesto
The Cornerstone building is now (23 March 2020) closed to the public until further notice, following further recommendations of all our denominational churches and the government. The only exception to this is that the NHS Blood Service Blood Donor sessions will go ahead, to meet the extra need for blood donations. If you are a blood donor aged under 70, please give blood. Book a session on the NHS Blood Service website.

Prayer of the Week 29 March 2020

God of new life, we give you thanks and praise today.
As we gather virtually in your name this week, may we know your resurrection power in our lives.
May our spirits be renewed, and our bodies be restored.
Let the same spirit that brought Lazarus out of the grave, and raised you to new life,
dwell in each one of us today and all the days of our lives.
We thank you immensely:
for your constant presence, for holding us and comforting us;
for crying with us when we are hurting; for weeping with us when we are broken-hearted.
Thank you, Lord, that you never let us down, but constantly give us hope.
We are here to give you our praise and thanksgiving from deep within us.
