What we believe

As the name ‘Christ Church’ suggests, we exist to worship Jesus Christ. We want to worship, follow, serve and proclaim Jesus with all we’ve got, because we believe he is worth it.

We believe that Jesus is life-changing and life-saving, because by his life, death, and resurrection, he makes it possible for us to be true children of the God who made us.

We believe that whoever you are, Jesus is the only person who can satisfy you, and the only person who can rescue you. We believe that it is our joy to share that good news with the world.

We believe that Jesus is welcoming of everyone, and challenging for everyone.  We believe that the Bible is good news for all people- and that it is not just a book written by people, but written by God for us today.

Christ Church is welcoming to all people. Whether you are a committed follower of Jesus, exploring faith, or ‘just’ visiting, you can be assured of a warm welcome and a supportive community. We have people of lots of different nationalities, backgrounds, income brackets, and different ways of looking at the world. And we love that about our church.

Christ Church is a part of the Church of England, and take seriously the heritage of faith that has been handed down to us, because we believe it reflects the truth that’s been given to us in the Bible.

All of the Ministry team and churchwardens are committed to the historic doctrine of the Church of England, and so the ministry, teaching and preaching at church all come from this perspective. If you’d like to see those, please click on the links below.
