An informal family friendly service. A time of prayer and worship for all ages, during which we gather at the Lord's Table for a simple Communion. We really don't mind if kids are noisy. Come along and join in!
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.
From 5th July Christ Church reopened for public worship, but at 10.30am only.
There are restrictions to ensure we remain COVID secure and these are listed here.
Mid-Week Praise is uploaded to our Facebook Page at 6.15pm on Wednesdays.
The Prayer Book Society lists some churches livestreaming BCP services.
The Church of England has launched a free phoneline for the 'digitally disconnected'. If people call
0800 804 8044 they will be able to hear music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services. Please share this number with anyone you know who is 'digitally disconnected'.
The Church of England has also issued a prayer booklet for use during the outbreak. A pdf version is available online.
'First Fridays': On the first Friday of each month we gather at the Vicarage (7.30pm) for pizza, a glass (or two) of wine, Bible study, prayer and a simple Communion. You can simply turn up, but a phonecall or email helps us to plan the catering. CURRENTLY SUSPENDED.
