Worried about fitting in? Don't be! At Christ Church you'll find there are students, young workers, families and retirees, from different countries and a variety of faith-backgrounds. You don't even have to be Christian to come along!
What should I wear?
There’s no dress-code – come in whatever you feel comfortable wearing. Most people are pretty casual.
What will happen? Do I need to bring anything?
As you arrive, you'll be given a welcome and everything you need for the service. There’ll be some prayers, a Bible-reading, a talk, usually something for the children, and various songs along the way (here is a Spotify playlist of some of our favourites!). If you arrive late, it’s OK. We aim to start on time, but we always leave seats at the back for latecomers.
What about money?
You’re not expected to bring any money with you. Our regulars do contribute to church funds, but visitors are our guests.
What happens after the service?
Refreshments are served after the service – and they’re also free. You can slip off after the formal close of the service if you like, but lots of people choose to stay and chat over drinks and cakes.
Anything for the children?
We hope it goes without saying that it’s fine to bring children – and please don’t worry if they misbehave. We're a 'Shhh'-free church! You can always wander in and out if they’re proving challenging. We provide creche and Sunday school facilities ('Treasure Seekers') for under-11s. There is also a group for those aged 11-14 in the 11.15 gathering. See below for more info on children and families.
