Big welcome to you!

Christchurch is a lively, growing church with something for everyone! We love welcoming guests, especially on Sunday mornings, and are passionate about helping people take steps in their spiritual journey.

We’re a Christ-centred community where people can serve Christ, grow to be like him and reach out to others with his transforming love. We hope you enjoy exploring more on this website!

Sunday Services:

Join us onsite (9.30am at Parkway or 10.30am at Peartree) or online at 10.30am. There are groups for children & young people at both sites.

Still catching up on a service you missed? We have the most recent ones here.

Masks

The wearing of masks for Sunday services is now optional. Those who prefer to continue wearing a mask are welcome to sit anywhere, and we will also keep a space (the back 2-3 rows) for those wanting to wear masks and sit behind those who choose not to.

Alongside this we will contine to keep rooms well ventialted, encourage people to keep appropriate space when talking to others & provide outside spaces for mixing after services.

Out of consideration for others, we ask that you stay at home if you have been advised to, if you have a heavy cold, known symptoms of Covid-19, or have tested positive for Covid.

For other midweek activities please check with the group leaders who give guidance for their group based on what is best for everyone attending or leading each group.

We are an inclusive, welcoming church where most Sunday morning services at our Peartree site provide some access through British Sign Language (BSL).

The main signer has a level 4 BSL qualification. If you wish to join us and access our service through BSL please email the office to ensure this will be available on your visit: info@christchurchwgc.org.uk

COVID-19 Response

As a church leadership team we continue to prayerfully monitor and consider our response to COVID-19 at each stage. Over recent months we have enjoyed welcoming new people to our Sunday services at Parkway, Peartree and online. It has also been a delight to see different groups and activities happening during the week.

We’re a church who long to see lives & communities being changed by God’s love. Why? Because we’re convinced that all people matter to God – and so each person matters to us too. 

Throughout the course of the pandemic we believe God has called us to be:

Hopeful – rooted in God’s Word

Prayerful – rooted in God’s presence, together and as individuals

Pastoral – connected & deepening relationships with each other and those God brings to us

Loving our neighbour – serving the needs of those along our road, in our community and across the world

Whole-life disciples – walking close to God as we work out this different season of life and growing as disciples through recognising our spiritual gifts and using them where God has placed us.

Please get in touch if there are particular ways we can support you or someone you’re aware of in need. You can email info@christchurchwgc.org.uk or phone the number at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to hearing from you.
