Our Mission Statement: To offer our best to God through Worship, Fellowship and Care for the Community
Sunday Services and Messy Church
After 19 weeks of closure Christ Church re-opened for Sunday Worship on Sunday 26th July 2020. Our services are slightly shorter at 30 minutes, adhering to government and United Reformed Church guidelines. The services include music, but singing of hymns by the congregation is not possible at this time, responsive prayers, a Bible reading and reflection.
For the time being, there will be one service each Sunday. This will be at 10.30am each week, except on the second Sunday of the month when the service will take place at 3pm.
We understand that many of you do not yet feel comfortable with larger gatherings, or are continuing to shield for health reasons. For these reasons we ‘stream’ our Sunday Worship on Zoom.
The livestream is available not just to those with computer, tablet or smartphone but also to anyone with an ordinary landline telephone. Details of how to join the livestream on Zoom is in the Weekly Bulletin on the Blog section.
The serving of Communion has been suspended.
There are no children’s activities during the services.
Before the Coronavirus, our sessions took place on the first Saturday of the month at Christ Church, from 10am to 11.30am for babies and children up to 5 years old, except August. This has been transferred for the time being on to zoom, still on the first Saturday of the month at 10am. See the Messy Church Bulletin under Blog for full details, of how to join and for theme related activities.
For information on the style of our services please see About Us.
The Reverend Ian Smith leads many of these services and those listed below. In his absence, services are lead by visiting Ministers, Church Elders or members of the congregation.
