Services in Church
We now hold a 9am service of Holy Communion on a Sunday mornings. We are making it as safe as we can and ask everyone to wear face masks, use hand sanitiser and sit with appropriate distancing in the pew to which you will be directed. The stewards will also give you instructions on the day so do please listen and help us to make this work. Sadly, we will not be able to sing or have coffee afterwards but hope to have some music played. The service order will be from Common Worship and will be printed for you. The service should last no more than 45 minutes.
You are welcome to come to this service and give it a try but if you prefer not, then we will still run a Zoom service of Morning Worship each week at 10.30am (please note the change of time) and it will be good to see you there.
Please also be aware that should another lockdown occur or guidance change there could be last minute cancellations of services. We will update you as best we can.

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.

Lights To Remember
A Service of Thanksgiving & Remembrance for those we have loved and lost
Christ Church Ottershaw invite you to join a Zoom service on Sunday 15th November 2020 at 4pm. Please contact our administrator Chloe McCarthy on [email protected] to request details of how to join.
This is an opportunity to gather to remember and give thanks for people we have known and loved, who have died both recently and in the past. Usually we would gather in our church building but due to Covid restrictions this is not possible. These are difficult times and so instead we will have an online service of hymns, readings, poems and prayers, and an opportunity to remember loved ones who have died. If you wish your loved one(s) name(s) to be read out, please email us. You can download a prayer card which we hope you will find helpful as you remember and will have to hand for the service.
We are delighted to announce the publication of the October/November PArish Magazine. Printed copies will be distributed and available in the usual retailers, and the online version can be downloaded from the "Notices and Magazine" tab above.
The Big Quiz
The Big Quiz is back – this year on Zoom! Please book Saturday 14th November 7.15 for 7.30 into your diaries
It is in aid of Tearfund’s vital relief and support work in countries where people are far less fortunate than ourselves.
To take part, email [email protected] by Tuesday 10th November. We will be splitting up into breakout rooms with teams of 6-8 people. Each household in a team must email individually so they can be set up on Zoom. In your email say who you are in a team with, or ask to be put into a team.
There will also be some fun activities during the Quiz, to stimulate you!
We have put together a document which helps to locate different organisations that may be of use to people & families during this crisis.
If you are in isolation and need support please get in touch and we will do what we can to help.
