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.
