Christ Church

Dear Church Visitor

Whether you are a virtual or actual visitor, then welcome.  The church is open daily from10am until 4pm for private prayer. We offer a quiet place to sit away from the noise and distractions of the world.

Our regular services are Holy Communion at 9am on the first Sunday of each month, and a less formal family worship at 10am on the third Sunday led by members of the congregation. There will be extra services for special events in the church year such as Christmas, Easter and Plough Sunday.

Visitors are very welcome. If you are a passing walker or cyclist, you may be grateful for somewhere to make running repairs. You will find a small box of useful items just inside the door on the table on the left.

You can find the latest Mission Community Newsletter in the News and Notices menu under Notice Sheets.
