Welcome


Come and meet our church family, you'll find a friendly welcome. Our church is a great place for families and children and we are people who care for each other in the ups and downs of life.


At Christ Church you can ask questions and grow, whether you are already a Christian or someone who wants to find out why we believe in God and what our faith means to us.

Thirsty Thursday

Thursday 22nd April 8pm-8.40pm


Please join us for ‘Thirsty Thursdays' - worship with wine, water or whatever takes your fancy!

Try out a new online and informal way of worshipping. Sit down and relax with Christ Church Ottershaw’s mid-week worship. Suitable for adults of all ages and children who are not tucked up in bed.

An opportunity to celebrate, explore or deepen faith with worship songs, short readings, prayers, and reflections.

We will be trying this out on Thursday 22nd April, from 8pm and will last between 30 and 40 minutes.

Please do join us, cameras on or cameras off, we really do not mind.

Please email Chloe, our administrator for the Zoom link, [email protected]
