Christ Church, Watford
Welcome to Christ Church
Covid-19: Following the lockdown from Thursday 5th November there will be no public worship in our two churches. St Mark's will be open on Sundays from 9.30 to 10.15 for private prayer. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we've had to reduce seating so it's "first come, first served". Everyone must wear a face covering unless exempt on medical or other grounds. This is following government and C of E guidance. The last service in church for the moment will be the 10 am communion service at Christ Church on Wednesday 4th November.
Livestream worship every Sunday at 11.00 (NB 10.50 start on Remembrance Sunday Nov 8th)
The livestream Bible study continues on Wednesdays at 1pm
Livestream Compline (late evening prayer) with space for free prayer Thursdays at 8 pm for about 20 mins.

You can contact us by email or by phone (see the Get in touch tab) and give us any requests for prayer. If you are self-isolating and need help with shopping or just a phone call, please ask us.
On the news/notices part of our pages here you can find prayers for the Corona virus outbreak. You'll also find the Sunday notice sheet - both sides are there as separate downloads.We are a small but growing church with an accent on working with children and young families. Sunday School meets most Sundays during the service using the cafe area at the back of church. Overall our worship style is traditional but transitioning into something more contemporary.
Our main Sunday service starts at 11.00, finishing around 12.00 (see services tab for details)
Everyone is welcome at all of our services and we have people from many different cultures in our congregations. Children (especially lively ones) are very welcome and there's plenty of space for small, active, people to move around during the services.
