A huge thank you to all who attended and supported our Concert for Ukraine. A varied programme of music and song including input from a Ukranian Church Choir all contributed to us raising £1000 for Ukranian relief charities.
Special thanks to all the performers who gave their time and talents completely free of charge including Jennifer Partridge, Glenys Roberts, Michael Lessiter, John Strange and others.
Following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I can confirm that our church buildings will be open for prayer from 9am Friday morning 9th September our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very difficult time
I was concerned to hear of doctors’ worries for the health of our Queen. Please join me in praying for her and her family at this difficult time.
Here is a prayer that you may find useful at this time: O God, who providest for thy people by thy power, and rulest over them in love: Vouchsafe so to bless thy Servant our Queen, that under her this nation may be wisely governed, and thy Church may serve thee in all godly quietness; and grant that she being devoted to thee with her whole heart, and persevering in good works unto the end, may, by thy guidance, come to thine everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
The dates of our next Alpha Course have just been agreed and it will be running at Christ Church every Friday from 2nd September through to 4th November. The course will also include a weekend 7th-9th October.
We do hope you will be able to join us at Christ Church on the 2nd Sunday of the month for our all age service. This is a relaxed family friendly service with a mix of worship music, prayers, reflection and activities. For our smallest visitors we have a play mat with some toys available.
You are welcome to stay afterwards to chat over a drink
