No matter what your age or background, we want you to feel engaged with the life of Christ Church. With our building currently closed, our activities continue online and through informal connections.
We are currently unable to run Baby and Toddler Group. It’s for children aged 0-4 and their parents, grandparents and carers, normally meeting in our building on Mondays and Thursdays from 10.00 to 11:30 am during school term times. As well as play equipment we have crafts, a singing time and refreshments. Sessions cost £2 for one child and 90p for each additional child.
CHILDREN & YOUTH
We’re currently meeting online in age-appropriate groups with crafts, games, discussion and other activities to meet the needs of everyone aged 3 to 18. Before lockdown many of our groups were meeting during Sunday morning services (children) and on Sunday and weekday evenings (youth).
Nexus (the name means ‘a bond or linked group’) provides a social network for students, including international students, and other young adults in the (roughly) 18 to 30’s age bracket.Members may be anywhere on their spiritual journey. Social meetups have been restricted through lockdown but an online Bible study is continuing.
Meeting, learning and praying in small groups is one of the most effective ways for anyone to grow as a Christian. Being part of a home group gives a sense of belonging and acceptance. Each of our several groups has its own “personality” and if you are thinking of joining one, please speak to a member of the church leadership to help find the group that will suit you best. All our home groups are meeting online at the moment.
Christ Church Lunch Club has a long tradition of providing friendship, community and a high-quality meal for a group of over 20 older people each Wednesday lunchtime.
We have had to suspend this activity due to the closure of our building and are also mindful of the vulnerable status of many of our guests. We’re doing our best to meet the needs of this group by other means but it is hard to make up for the inability to meet together.
It's not about being busy...
We run a lot of events and activities, but in the end our real concern is for who we are rather than what we do. Our aim is to become more fully the people God intended us to be – as individuals and as a community.
