Christ Church is a modern community based church comprising of a main worship building and adjacent Church Centre. We are located in the heart of the Matchborough Estate close to local shops and a large high school and we seek to serve the whole community. The church is evangelical and charismatic and thoroughly bible based. We believe in the authority of scripture and also believe the Word of God is the only truth in this world.

We hold morning and evening services on Sundays and a range of midweek meetings, including prayer meetings, support groups and youth clubs. Sunday morning is the main teaching service and Sunday evening services include informal Communion, time of refreshing or cafe worship. We are committed to making all services relevant, where praise and worship honours God and where God’s word is taught with authority, enabling commitment and discipleship.

We have an active children’s and youth ministry, with well attended Friday evening sessions. The Wave Youth Service, run by the youth for the youth, is held on the last Friday of every month at 7.30 p.m.

The Christ Church Community Project was set up in May 2003, becoming a registered charity in 2005, with the aim of adult community education, support for families and young people, luncheon and activities club for older people and improved communication in the community.

In October 2017 Graeme Russell, our new full-time Community Missioner, started in post. A few years ago the Community Project obtained a grant from the Council's Changing Futures Fund to assess the needs of the local community through consultation with individuals and community groups. Graeme will be working to identify and prioritise these needs and, working with the church, voluntary and statutory agencies, will set up new projects/initiatives to address them.

I hope, after reading about Christ Church, you will come and join us!
