COVID 19 Latest. Updated 19th September 2020

Following indications that the number of people permitted to take part in a social gathering is to be reduced from 30 to six in England, we understand the new regulations will not apply to public worship or individual prayer in church buildings.

Christ Church will therefore continue to be open for our socially distanced gathering service on Sundays at 9.30am.

<span style="font-size: 1rem; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">Please wear a mask. You are required to hand sanitise, available on entry, and to sign in for track & trace purposes. For more details please see the link below for latest Church of England guidelines.</span>
