Following the latest Government instructions, unfortunately our beloved Christ Church is now shut for the time being and won’t be open at all during the week for group meetings and events or weekend for prayer. However, we are still very much here and will continue to bring God’s word to you as much as we can.
We are broadcasting the following services via a ‘live’ stream on our Facebook page:
- 9.30am Sunday morning – Worship and word.
- 1pm Wednesday lunchtime – Prayer and reflection
If anyone has prayers or words of encouragement you would like read out, please either email us at email@example.com or post a comment on our Facebook page.
If any children would like to draw a picture or write a poem/letter that we can post on our Facebook page to brighten our days that would be wonderful too.
In addition, there is an opportunity to join us via ZOOM for fellowship and services at the following times:
- 7.30pm Wednesday evening FORTNIGHTLY (commencing 22nd April 2020) – Evening prayer
- 7.30pm Thursday evening weekly – Fellowship/bible study group
For the ZOOM sessions you will need to email Revd Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org with an expression on interest. He will then email you with the unique passcode ID and password to login with.
Once we are no longer in lockdown then we hope to revert back to our previous weekly services during the month. Please find below details of what goes on at our church in more normal times!
Our Sunday Services:
There is parking available on the site.
You can expect a warm welcome; great worship; relevant preaching based on the Word of God and a friendly group of people ready to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
Twice a month our 9.30am Sunday service includes Holy Communion, (generally on the 1st & 2nd Sunday) where we remember the saving aspect of Jesus’ life, when he gave his life to save his followers. In Holy Communion we share together by receiving some bread and a sip of wine to connect with his sacrifice, reminding ourselves that we are part of the community of Christ’s followers today.
Our 9.30am Sunday morning services have something for all ages and children are always included. During the month, children stay in the main Sunday service with their parents or carer on the 3rd and 4th Sunday of the month. On the remaining Sundays, the children are invited to go off to their own children’s ministry, which is called Kidzone here at Christ Church, and is held out in the church hall. (We take child protection seriously and ensure all our leaders are DBS checked before joining the team – we also have a dedicated Child Protection Officer to ensure that children in our care our are being looked after to high standards)
We hope that you find our church community engaging and enriching and that you feel at home with us.
We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after all our services. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.
