The Church is open for private prayer until 4pm
The best way to describe the style of worship at our main (10.30am) Sunday morning service is family friendly, 'middle-of-the-road' Anglican. We are not stuffy and toys and 'Busy Bags' are available to help keep little ones occupied.
Family & Parade Services are what some might call 'All Age' (strictly speaking all services are 'All Age') and are geared towards our uniformed organisations (Scouts, Guides etc). They are a mixture of the formal (presentation of banners and National Anthem) and child-centred liveliness.
For those who prefer the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer we offer Holy Communion as a quiet start to the day and the timelessness of Evening Prayer to complete the day. The monthly evening Communion service is also BCP.
On Sunday 24th September, at 10.45am, we join Ainsworth Methodists for their Harvest Festival (so there is no 10.30am service at Christ Church). The reason for this is that they have booked an inspirational guest speaker from Urban Outreach, a Christian Charity (supported by our Balcony Group), which works with disadvantaged people in Bolton.
Urban Outreach have asked us to bring with us items to help clients attending their Winterwatch and Storehouse programmes (see list in the porch).
NB the date of our own Harvest Festival remains unchanged and will take place on 8th October.
