changing lives through Christs love

About Charis Church

Charis Church International began in Barry and Linda Manson’s front room but soon outgrew this and has met in different venues over the years and now meets at:

The Antioch Centre,
80 Headford Street,

We are a diverse cultural group, including English, Irish, Welsh, Italian, Lithuanian and Pakistani (so far), hence the addition of International to the name. The diversity is fantastic when it comes to having meals together!!!

Our commonality is in discovering the security, identity and destiny that we have found in Jesus Christ.

We believe in God’s empowering presence and purpose in people's lives to enable each one to reign in life.

( Romans 5.17 ).

About our name & logo

Charis (Karis) = Grace

Charis is that wonderful New Testament Greek word for GRACE which reveals the loving, kind, generous attitude of God toward humanity, which simply means people like us! That He loves us unconditionally, sees past our weaknesses, and wants to make us into whole and healthy people.

We believe here at Charis that Jesus enables and empowers us to reign in life ( John 10.10; Rom 5.17 ). That no one has fallen too far not to be picked up and made brand new by the supernatural power of Jesus ( Luke 15.11 ).

Here at Charis we want to partner with you in discovering the new life and destiny Jesus wants to bring you into.

The symbol used in our logo is a variation of the triquetra (from a Latin word meaning "three-cornered") It is an ancient symbol for the Trinity. Its design uses three interwoven arcs, distinct yet equal and inseparable, symbolizing that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three distinct yet equal Persons and indivisibly One God. It is also suggested that the design is based on the sign of the fish known to be used by early Christians. A version of the triquetra can also found printed on the spine of all New King James Version (NKJV) Bibles. It can also be found in the architecture and stained glass windows of many historical churches.
