Sundays

Joining Us

Our Sunday services are at 10.30 a.m. in the building, and relayed on to Zoom for those who cannot attend in person.

 

Please contact admin@christchurchbaptist.co.uk for details.

Covid-19

We ask everyone to be careful and sensible.  We do not require anyone to wear a mask or use the QR code, but you are welcome to do so if you'd like.  Chairs are spaced out more than usual and windows are opened more than usual.  Keep your distance wherever you can.  If you would prefer not to sing, please sit towards the back of the church.

 

What Does Sunday at Christ Church look like?

Sunday mornings at CCB attract around 70 to 80 people each week of all ages. We offer a range of activities for young people - please click here to be taken to our youth work page for further information.

 

Morning services are normally around 75 minutes in length. This is what a typical service looks like:

 

Welcome & Notices

Opening prayer and song

Short All Age Talk & Song

Children leave main service for various small groups

Songs of Worship

Bible reading

Sermon/Talk

Songs of Worship

Prayers

Closing Song

Music

The music at Christ Church is best described as 'blended' worship - often contemporary songs, with some traditional ones too.

Offerings

We do not pass an offering plate around during our services and there is absolutely no pressure to give to the church. We are entirely self-funded and if you would like to make a donation to the work of the church as an offering to God, there are plates in the foyer as you enter the church by the main doors.  Alternatively, you can give online via our Stewardship page.

Refreshments

Coffee & Tea are usually served at the end of the service in the Lower Hall, adjacent to the main church. This is a great opportunity to catch up with friends and to get to know new people from the area.

Communion

Jesus told His followers to remember Him with bread & wine as symbols of His death on the cross. The new life we have in Jesus comes at a cost to Him and a commitment from us. Communion reminds us of the centrality of the cross of Jesus for real change in our lives and our world.

 

We share communion, which for us is ordinary bread and non-alcoholic wine, once a month.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
