  Groups for Children  

Safeguarding is important to us at Christ Church and all of our leaders are safely recruited and DBS checked in line with the policies of the Diocese and the Church of England. We ask all parents to fill out a consent form if your child would like to take part in our children's and youth groups so that we have all the details we need about any allergies, medical conditions or other needs.

Toddlers Group

Every Wednesday during term-time we open up the main church building for toddlers and their parents/carers! The group takes place from 9.15-10.45am and we have loads of fun toys and activities for little ones to do, as well as tea/coffee and toast for parents. It's a really friendly group and new people are always welcome. There is a suggested donation of £1 per family.

Sunday Groups

On most Sunday mornings children aged 4-13 leave the church service part way through to go to their own groups. They will learn from the Bible in a fun, interactive way through a range of different activities including art, craft, drama, stories and music. Sunday Groups take place every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month when we have an All-Age Service and everyone stays together in church.

Please note that Sunday Groups do not meet during August.

SNACC Youth Groups

 

SNACC stands for "Sunday Nights at Christ Church". The club takes place from on Sundays during term-time and it's free. A range of activities take place from games, cooking, art and craft, quiz's and team challenges. 7-10 year olds meet from 6.00-7.00pm. 11+ meet from 7.00-8.00pm. We're always happy to welcome new members. Contact us for more information.

  Groups for Adults  

Alpha

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal enviroment. Each session includes refreshments, a short video and a discussion where you can share your thoughts. 

There's no pressure, no follow-up and no charge. 

Alpha will take place on Thursday evenings in the church hall starting on 16th January 2020. If you'd like more information or to sign up to try it out then please contact us.

The Meeting Point

On Thursday afternoons from 2.00-3.30pm, we'll open up the church hall for people to meet, chat, eat, drink and play games together. So if you would like a cup of tea or coffee (or a cold drink!) and some cake, an opportunity to play scrabble, do a jigsaw or something else then do head along. The group is open to newcomers and there is a friendly atmosphere. Adults of all ages are welcome. 

Light Bite Lunch

On the second Monday of the month we have a lunch for elderly people from 12.45pm - 2.00pm. Perhaps you've been recently bereaved or would just like an opportunity to chat and eat with others. We usually eat simple food: soup, bread and cakes for dessert, but it's a great time to get to know some new friends. Do get in touch for more information.

Please note that there is no Light Bite Lunch in August.

Home Groups

Some of our members meet together in each others homes in small groups to discuss the Bible, pray for one another and grow together as a community. If you'd be interested in joining one of our home groups then do get in touch and we can help you to make contact.
