Christ Church is a modern community-based church comprising of the 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 one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the authority of scripture and also believe the Word of God is the only truth in this world.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we are continuing to worship on a Sunday morning in a covid-safe way with limited capacity. We have a commitment to pray and the Tuesday prayer meeting continues to meet on Zoom. We have a virtual coffee morning during the week and support groups are mainly meeting online. Our youth group is finding creative ways to keep in touch. Unfortunately, it is not possible to operate some groups or services, but we are monitoring the changing guidelines to help identify new possibilities.
The emphasis in our services is coming into God's presence, with praise and teaching that honours God, and where God’s word is taught with authority, enabling commitment and discipleship.
We have a children’s ministry that is waiting to resume when conditions are right. The youth ministry, is able to continue but due to the current situation is often virtual and subject to covid-19 guidelines.
Please contact the church office for more details about church activities or see the links above for the latest newsletter, devotions etc.
We hope to meet you and invite you to come and join us.
