Church of England Diocese of Exeter Christ Church Paignton

Christ Church Parish Church

We are the Parish Church for the Northern half of central Paignton.

We are a partnership of two friendly evangelical churches in the wonderful seaside town of Paignton.

So it's a new decade - maybe a time for resolutions! So why not take the opportunity in the midst of all today's fears and uncertainties to consider where is God in all this?

The most eternally significant questions you can ask are 'Who is Jesus?' and 'What does his life and death on the cross mean to me?'

We believe that the answers to these and many more existential questions are found in the Bible and each week at Church and in House groups we explore them and what the Bible has to say.

No one is more important than anyone else and everybody has a valuable contribution to make.

So if you haven't been to church for a while (or if you've never been before) and you'd like to give it a try, we would love to see you. You're welcome to join us at any of our services whether you have been a Christian for sometime or you are just beginning to wonder what it's all about.

At Christ Church we believe that God loves all people, young and old and everyone in between.

Whatever your story, the church is a place for anyone and everyone who wants to find God.

Our main service is at 11.00 on Sundays. 1st and 3rd Sunday includes Communion. Our style is to be reverently informal, with a mixture of modern and traditional songs.

We also hold a weekly lunch time service on Wednesdays at 12.00 midday which consists of Readings from the Bible, a short talk followed by open prayer and coffee.

From January 2019 we have a Sunday evening service at 6pm called Revive @ 6 with lively worship and open prayer and we will be following a series 'Who is Jesus?' based on John's Gospel.

Anyone is welcome to come - we provide coffee from 5.30.

We are always pleased to welcome visitors and you would be very welcome to join us. You don't have to be a believer to come to church - we all start off as seekers, but we believe that those who come truly seeking God will surely find Him.

Oldway Primary School, the largest primary school in Devon with up to 700 pupils, hold three services a year, Christmas (picture above), Easter, and Harvest Festival when the pupils comes to the church.

Lunch Time Service

Every Wednesday at noon for 30m

Torquay Road

This is an opportunity for anyone who would like to pop into the church - perhaps just to spend a quiet time with God.
The service starts at 12 and is over by half-past. It is a simple time together, just a couple of readings, some thoughts on a Gospel passage and time to pray silently or out loud as you prefer.
There's coffee available after the service and space to sit and chat, or just sit. You would be very welcome to pop in and join us - you don't need to be a member of the church to come.
