Your First Visit

Thinking of visiting Christ Church for the first time?

    • What time should I arrive?

The service will start at 11am and church is open at least half an hour before that. Parking is available on the main road, up Bent Lane or across the main road down Ball Grove Drive.  There is disabled access into the church and room for wheelchairs down the side aisles.

    • What time will it finish?

The service finishes around mid-day but you are more than welcome to stay for a drink and a chat.

    • What should I wear?

There is no dress code, jeans and a jumper or suit and dickie bow tie, it’s your choice.

    • What do you have for my children?

There are always toys and books to entertain children in the Narthex.  The 'All Age' service takes place on the second Sunday of the month. This service includes traditional hymns, modern uplifting worship songs from 'Fusion' our music group and action songs.  On the last Sunday of each month we now run a 'Sunday Club' for children where they can participate in craft activities whilst they enjoy a few snacks.  This takes place in the narthex and runs alongside the Holy communion service taking place in the church.  If you have a pram and want to participate in the service there is plenty of space for you to park up in church.

    • Will I be singled out or otherwise embarrassed?

Certainly not, if you just want to check things out and blend in with the crowd then that’s fine. We are a friendly bunch though so there is every chance somebody will say Hi. We want you to feel welcome.
