Journey to the Cross- our Good Friday community walk

Christ Church Needs You!

Imagine those war time posters with the big finger pointing straight out at you! The image reminds us that each one of us counts, that we are all part Team Christ and therefore Team Christ Church, our local part of His body. By serving, we become more like Christ the Servant King, so if you […]

What’s on offer for children at Christ Church on a Sunday?

I was wondering how to explain what exactly happens on Sunday mornings for our children, so here’s a snap shot from last Sunday: Our Children’s groups start at about 10.45am on a Sunday, so children experience a short taste of the main Church for a couple of songs, and perhaps some notices, then our children […]
