Come along and share in four evenings of reflection, exploring the relationship between worship and the stewardship of creation. The sessions will take place at Christ Church beginning on Monday 2nd October, 7pm
I’m so glad you have found our website and I hope you find it useful and informative. This weekend, as always, you have the opportunity to join us in person for worship at our churches. On Sunday 1st October, we begin with a service of Morning Prayer (Matins) at St Peter’s Church, 9.30am. This service is a traditional service with words taken from The Book of Common Prayer. We continue at Christ Church, 11am with a service of Holy Communion using contemporary language.
Later, at 4pm, we will be meeting for family craft fun for all ages with our Fun@4 and Youth@4 sessions. These take place at Christ Church and are open for anyone to join.
I hope I will have the opportunity to see you at one or more of these services. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to church before, or if it’s been a while – you will be guaranteed a warm welcome.
Revd, Colin Resch, priest in charge.
During our Morning Worship at Christ Church on Sunday 24 September, we welcomed Eddie into our Church family at his baptism service. The service was led by our Associate Minister, Mel Rowley; the preacher was Revd Colin Resch and we welcomed back into our Church Revd Darren Walker who performed the baptism.
It was a delight to welcome Kieran and Emily to St Peter’s Church on Saturday 23 September along with their family and friends. The wedding was a beautifully relaxed occasion with bride and groom surrounded by family and friends as they made their marriage vows to each other. The service was led by Revd Colin Resch, the organist was Mr John Strange. As the wedding march played at the end of the service, a band of eight bell ringers rang out the good news in celebration.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Newbold.
