No matter what your age or background, we want you to feel engaged with the life of Christ Church. Most of our activities are returning to our building (with some restrictions) in Autumn 2021, while some continue online.
CHILDREN & YOUTH
We meet in age-appropriate groups with crafts, games, discussion and other activities to meet the needs of everyone aged 3 to 18. Our groups meet during Sunday morning services (children) and on Sunday and weekday evenings (youth). Most of these events are in our building but some sessions are happening online.
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. Most home groups are meeting online at the moment.
For children aged 0-4 and their parents, grandparents and carers. We meet each Monday and Thursday morning from 10 to 11.30 during school term times. We have play equipment, songs, stories and some refreshments. Sesssions cost £2 for an adult and one child, and £1 for each additional child.
From September 2021 there is no need to book, but COVID-19 precautions remain in place. For the time being please bring a drink for your child, though we will provide pre-wrapped snacks.
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 had to suspend this activity during the closure of our building and are mindful of the vulnerable status of many of our guests. We’re currently planning to restart Lunch Club in October 2021 and are looking forward to meeting together once again.
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.
