Worship is at the heart of everything we do here at Christ Church, on Sunday and through the week. Some of our services are great celebrations with many hundreds of people. Others are more intimate occasions.


Visitors are always welcome to join us - our worship is a great way to learn about the life of the Christian community.

The church building is normally open every day from 8.30 am - 3.00 pm (on Saturdays normally 10.00am - 3.00pm) for personal prayer and silence. Please come in, light a candle, say a prayer and simply enjoy the tranquility of this special place.

Sunday Worship & Daily Prayer


8.00 am Holy Communion: a quiet celebration with a congregation of 25 - 35 people. There are readings and time for reflection, and a short address. Normally the service lasts between 35 and 40 minutes.


10.00 am THE PARISH EUCHARIST - the main weekly service at Christ Church, with a regular congregation of 200 - 300 people, including a large number of children. It is a lively celebration with a mix of music and an atmosphere best described as 'formal informality'. The form of service is in the mainstream of the Church of England, but with a real openness in which people of all ages and backgrounds feel at home.


On the first Sunday of each month the music is led by the Music Group and the children of the community take a special role. The Parish Eucharist lasts between an hour and an hour and a quarter. It is followed by opportunities for fellowship and learning in the Parish Centre.


JUNIOR CHURCH for children of 4 upwards meets on all Sundays in term time, except the first Sunday of the month.




9.30am:     Prayer Group - an opportunity to pray for those on the prayer list, light candles and keep silence together


10.00 am:   a simple celebration of Holy Communion followed by refreshments


Daily Prayer:


Morning Prayer is normally celebrated Monday to Friday at 8.30am

Evening Prayer is normally celebrated every day (except Monday and Friday) at 5.30pm
