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.


Sandra Faccini, Vicar

Eco-Church


Christ Church has been awarded  Bronze Eco Church status. In the churchyard you may have seen the lovely wild flowers (primroses & daisies) that have been growing there. A beautiful sight to see, but also essential to bees and other insects, and good for the environment. 

The Wildlife Trusts are encouraging us to sign up for 30 days Wild in June, please do have a look at their webpage, https://action.wildlifetrusts.org/page/57739/petition/1 it would be good to sign up and see how may Random Acts of Wildness you can manage during the 30 days, we would love you to share what you most enjoyed and send us some photos for our website. Have fun!

Thy Kingdom Come


Each year there is a call to pray between Ascension day and Pentecost.

As a church we should try to think of 5 people we can pray for and commit to doing that each day from 22nd to 30th May. Also let's commit to all saying the Lord's Prayer midday each day so that we are all praying Thy Kingdom Come at the same time.
