Extraordinary APCM in The Point on July 28th: we will be ‘open’ for tea and cake starting at 17.30, to be finished well in time for you to come to our wonderful 18.30 service.
There is no end to the excitement….. We know that all APCMs are extraordinary, but, following on from our main meeting in April, we now need to formally approve a couple of things
There are just 3 items on the agenda:
- The formal acceptance of the Accounts – these are now available using the links below, and as printed copies at Church.
- Approval of the creation of the Assistant Church Warden Role.
- Appointment of Sylvia Mann as our first Assistant Church Warden.
It would be good if there was a fourth item – the approval of a second Church Warden – but we have no progress on that as yet. Nevertheless, watch this space!
Christ Church THIS WEEK (and for the whole month)!
Sunday 21st July 2019 – WELCOME

the big breakfast
On Saturday 6th July over 100 came to hear Jennifer Rees Larcombe share her testimony of how God has worked – and is working – in her life. She talked about learning to open your heart to God, especially in times of loss and rejection. She spoke simply and sincerely with humourous personal illustrations: the one where she heard God speaking to her as she lay in ‘mud’ was particularly graphic. Jennifer now runs ‘Beauty from Ashes’: www.beautyfromashes.co.uk, a house of prayer.
On a practical note, everyone also enjoyed a ‘holy’ breakfast – cooked by 1 vicar and 2 curates and served by a great team of young helpers!
Save the date of the next ‘Big Breakfast’: Saturday 30th November when Tracy Brown will be the guest speaker.
Christ Church is a lively, forward-looking evangelical church.
We are committed to sound Bible teaching, to the empowering work of the Holy Spirit, to engaging with God in worship, and to building up relationships with God, and with one another. We are concerned about making the Christian faith understandable and relevant to those whom we serve, and to equipping people to serve God in the whole of our lives, and not just on a Sunday.
We appreciate our rich heritage and welcome the many opportunities we have for reaching out into the community with the love of God. Our Parish Mission Statement: God’s Love: Know it; Show it; Share it; Declare it sums up all we try to do and be!
