Services

Christ Church offers a wide variety of services - from formal to informal. They are places we come together to worship God and encourage one another to live out faith on our frontlines.

SUNDAYS

8am Sunday 

TRADITIONAL. Receive a warm welcome at our said Holy Communion Service (BCP) every week. The Service usually lasts about 60 minutes.

10am Sunday 

RELAXED. With contemporary, band-led music and an emphasis on applying the bible to our daily lives, this service begins with all ages worshipping together. Children then go out to their groups, returning towards the end of the service. We celebrate communion together twice a month (1st & 3rdSundays). The service last around 75-80 minutes.

6 pm Contemporary Service Sunday

INFORMAL. Join us every Sunday evening for a contemporary style service of prayer, teaching and worship led by a band. The service is usually around 75 minutes long.
