Christ Church Stannington
Welcome to Christ Church Stannington, we are a community of people learning to love God and to love our neighbours and to be more Christlike in our lives.
We hope that through our worship and witness, others too of all ages may find faith and grow in faith. Do join us.
A time has come when we worship God in Spirit and in truth (John 4: 23b)
At our quieter 9am service, wearing face masks is encouraged, particularly while singing (unless exempt) , but this is not required while remaining in your seats at 10.30am. However, hand sanitising and minimising time inside are always advised.
The chairs are arranged in rows again, so while social distancing is encouraged, you can choose whether to sit with others or alone.
There is a separate area of 2m distanced seating if you prefer.
Holy Communion is given in wafer form only.
Test & trace is optional. Booking is no longer required for services.
