People come to our church buildings for a variety of reasons. Some want to share in Christian worship. Others hope to find companionship, or to engage in a hobby or pastime. Whatever their reason for coming all are welcome.

What is a Christian?

An increasing number of people of all ages want to know what Christianity is all about. Here we offer a brief outline; there are some links to follow if you want to explore further.

Services

Our pattern of worship is very varied and we hope that most people will find something that suits them. We believe that people of all types and ages find that worshipping in our churches helps them to enjoy a deeper relationship with God, with themselves and with other people.

Messy Church

A new approach to worship, normally on the third Sunday of each month. For everyone. People of all ages, all kinds of families and you are invited to enjoy:
• Craft
• Celebration with songs and stories
• A hot meal together
Come along to Christ Church on the third Sunday in each month at 4pm to find out what it's all about, or contact:
christchurchmessychurch@gmail.com; 01923 674142.

Children

For children aged 3 to 10 we have Sunday School and other educational and fun activities as well as the uniformed organisations - Beavers, Cubs, Rainbows and Brownies.

Young People

All young people are welcome at any of our church based activities. We also have uniformed organisations - Guides, Rangers, Scouts and Explorer Scouts - for young people of secondary school age through to young adulthood.

Adults

Christian Basics courses, study groups and prayer meetings are regular features of parish life. Anyone wanting to find out more about the Christian Faith or to deepen their own religious understanding and experience is invited to join in. There are additional opportunities for study and for prayer during Lent and at other times.

Social

In our two churches we enjoy a wide range of social activities. Occasional Sunday lunches, home meetings, concerts, quiz nights, dances and other kinds of events help people to get to know one another and to build friendships.

Music

If you like singing or playing a musical instrument, and if you enjoy concerts or organ recitals, we believe that Christ Church and St Mark's Church have quite a lot to offer.

Fairtrade

We only use fairly traded tea and coffee at our church events. We have a Fairtrade stall permanently set up in Christ Church with a ‘special' stall in each church once a month. We hold occasional Fairtrade Lunches.

We hope that in these pages you might find things that interest you. For more detailed information about our various activities please contact:
