Common Ground Guildford is a new mission community of people who are passionate about finding new ways to offer people the Christian message and to pray, especially for Guildford. We are committed to continuing to be part of our existing churches, which include Guildford town centre Church of England, Methodist and Baptist churches.
We summarise our community way of life
as PRAY; TOGETHER; GO; and make a commitment to GIVE.
We offer a wide range of events and activities
-for those intrigued about Christianity -and those who may be sceptical. Whether you enjoy the Creative Arts
, are a Night Owl (see Night Vision
) or want to explore more about Spirituality
we have something for you. Perhaps you wonder how faith and values play out in the "real world" (see Faith at Work
). We also work with the St Mary's congregation to welcome you to this special "sacred space" to reflect, pray, and "just be".
You can find out about how we are organised and key people involved in Common Ground under Who's Who.

Prayer from the Common Ground Guildford commitment service
Heavenly Father, we thank you for your call on our lives, stirring us, unsettling us, and drawing us into new paths where we are changed and renewed to show your love in your world. We thank you that, through your Spirit, you draw us into new communities of friendship, prayer and service. We thank you now for Common Ground and pray that we may be filled with your Spirit as we commit ourselves to walk together with each other and with Jesus
our Example, Friend and Saviour.
