Hello, and a warm welcome,
We are a local Church of England congregation that serves the people of Orpington. We're based on Charterhouse Road, where we meet on Sundays and throughout the week. We welcome people of all ages and hope that we speak words and demonstrate actions that are relevant to your everyday life.
In this respect, we trust that our Sunday services offer a warm welcome and are time well spent. Time to spend with God, and time to think about the priorities of life, time where we can grow in relationship with others. All ages are included at Christ Church and our morning services provide a crèche facility for the littlest. There are also activities for children from 3-year-olds to teenagers.
However, the church is not just about Sundays and we are actively involved in local schools, community action projects, summer holiday clubs, and community clubs for the elderly.
I hope you'll take the opportunity to visit us. Perhaps you might join us for one of our services, outreach events, or social activities. Do introduce yourself. I hope you will find a home among us and know God's blessing for your life.
The parish of Orpington: Christ Church is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
