Worship at Christ Church

Worship is the calling of every human being. We are made to joyfully enter the presence of God and thank him for creating, sustaining, and redeeming us.

At Christ Church, we worship using patterns which originate with the earliest Christians, and which we receive through the Anglican tradition of The Book of Common Prayer.

Children are always welcome in worship. They are gifts from God, and they belong in God's house as much as anyone else. Please feel free to move around the church with your children during the service. We are currently developing a children's play area at the back of the church.

Early Holy Communion
Sundays, 8:30-9:15 AM

Our early service is quiet and contemplative. There is a sermon but no hymns. We use the 1962 Book of Common Prayer, which is in traditional English.

Note: Until Fr Benjamin is ordained a priest, this service will not include the sacrament on most Sundays.

Sunday Bible Study
On Pause

Everyone is encouraged to attend our Bible study between the two services. Some come for the early service and stay for the study, while others come for the study and stay for the main service. We read and discuss a book of the Bible over many weeks.

Note: This Bible study is currently not running, but will be re-booted in the Autumn, which may involve a change of service times.

Choral Holy Communion
Sundays, 10:00-11:15 AM

At our main service, we worship God in word, sacrament, and song. We use traditional hymns which are singable and uplifting and have a broad appeal, accompanied by the organ. Our worship texts come from the Book of Common Prayer tradition, in contemporary English. All are welcome to stay afterward for coffee and tea.

Note: Until Fr Benjamin is ordained a priest, this service will not include the sacrament on most Sundays.

Morning & Evening Prayer
8:15 AM & 4:15 PM,  Most Weekdays Mon-Thu

The scriptures and prayer are the daily bread which sustains us through the week. The short "offices" (services) of Morning and Evening Prayer are offered using the 1962 Book of Common Prayer.

Fr Benjamin's pastoral responsibilities may mean that some offices are missed, so we encourage you to contact us to be added to a group notification when these services are cancelled.
