Activities

We look UP to God, IN towards each other and OUT to a world in need.

House Groups & Prayer 2016

Pop-in

(Wednesdays 2-4pm in the Church Centre)

An opportunity for older people to meet for tea cakes and socialising during the week. A valuable chance for non church members to meet in church premises in a “safe” activity.

Men’s breakfast

(2nd Saturday of every month 8am in the Church Centre)

Forget about cholesterol and indulge in full cream milk on your cornflakes and a cooked breakfast (healthy options available). An opportunity to meet socially that includes a time of worship, sharing and prayer.

Mothers Union

Mothers Union members organise occasional events with the help of non MU members and some are members of the Indoor Prayer Circle.


Activities for Children & Young People

Christ Church offers a full range of activities for children and young people.  Our full-time

Youth Worker, Lynne, provides pastoral support to our young people and works in schools for the good of the local community.  Alongside Lynne, we have a large team of trained volunteers adhering to Child Protection guidelines.  We offer the following:

CRECHE

During the 10am Sunday service, a crèche is provided with a live TV link to the church service and toys and helpers available.  You can drop your little one off at the start of the service or bring the child out and stay with them if you prefer.  The first Sunday of the month and throughout the summer, church services are ‘All-age’ so if you want to try Christ Church as a family, that is a good time to stay and see what happens.

JAM (Jesus And Me)

This is our Sunday morning group for infants and juniors.  It starts at 10am and finishes at 11.30am.

Activities include games, crafts, songs, drama – all aimed at having fun and learning about Jesus!

If you want, you can drop your children off and collect them after church or stay at the service and enjoy Sunday morning worship.

FOOTFINDERS

For secondary school children, we run another Sunday morning group called Footfinders (there is a long story behind this name – just ask!).   The group offers a varied programme and enables young people to express their views and develop their own understanding while having fun and enjoying friendships!

HOTSHOTS

Hotshots is our mid-week youth group for school years 6-9.

Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, term-time, 7.30-9pm in the Parish Hall.

STUDIO C

Studio C – a Holiday Club for school yrs R-6.  This is held in the first week of August.  A fun packed week, running from Monday – Friday, 10am-12.30pm with a Family Celebration on the Sunday.

We welcome cakes to celebrate any occasion on Sundays – as often as you like! If you intend bringing some, please could you tell those providing cakes that Sunday, so they know they don’t need to bring any. The rota is on the rota board at the back of the church.

Cards for sale at the back of the church with photographs of flower arrangements that have been in church. £1 each with proceeds going to the flower guild.
