Styles of worship

We cater for many different styles of worship at Christ Church - from the traditional to the modern - with each type of service offering its participants a unique way of encountering God.

On Sundays we normally have a said Communion Service at 8.00am which lasts about 45 minutes. We then have a Holy Communion service with hymns and a choir anthem, which is suitable for all ages, at 10am. A more contemporary Searchlight service is at 11.30am each Sunday. It provides an open and relaxed atmosphere, where people are safe to share and support one-another through prayer and friendship.

Finally; on each Sunday - except the second Sunday of the month - we have a variety of evening worship services. These are usually led by the choir and we have Choral evensong, Healing services, Prayer & Praise, Taizé and Iona style services. Each of these usually last for about one hour.

From Mondays to Saturday we hold a morning prayer service at 9.00am - except on Wednesdays when we have a 1662 Prayer Book spoken Holy Communion service at 10.30am which lasts 45 minutes – except on the last Wednesday each month when the 10.30am is 1662 Prayer Book Matins/Morning Prayer.

Our sister church St Mary’s worship is held at 9am each Sunday and varies between Holy Communion and Morning Prayer.

Occasionally we will change the times of services for special events, such as our partnership birthday party services or other seasonal occasions - to ensure that you are not disappointed please refer to our calendar of service times which gives the weeks service times and other details.
