Christ Church is a welcoming and friendly church with a wide range of activities and groups throughout the week for all ages.

We are one community, unified in God’s purposes for us, yet we express our worship of God in different ways. Our priority is to provide ways for you to meet with God through Jesus Christ in worship and through hearing and applying the Bible in your real life today.

Curious? Interested? Committed? Wherever you are in your beliefs, we will welcome you to our services, and hope that you will feel at home. At the 10am service there is always a staffed creche for under 3s as well as a range of children’s  Groups.

Fairtrade coffee is served after the 10am and 6.30pm services.

Got Questions?

Everyone has questions about the meaning of life and its purpose.

Dec 23rd 7pm

We will be showing a fabulous film called "God's not dead" (PG). This film has already raked in $70m since it was released earlier in 2014, and it has had awesome reviews, described as "entertaining, profound & powerful", stars Shane Harper (High School Musical) and Dean Cain (New Adventures of Superman).

The film is only 90 minutes long, so part of the evening will be purely social, but do try to arrive promptly for 7pm. This is a great opportunity for you to bring your friends and catch up with the team of young people who helped at last summer's Holiday Club
