Our Vision

We believe that the church is called to be a place where people can dare to hope through the love of God.

Christ Church’s strapline is Absolutely.Everyone.Welcome and this encapsulates what we are all about. We offer space to explore the relationship between the Christian faith and life in the 21st Century.

At Christ Church we subscribe to the historic (‘orthodox’) creeds of the Christian Church, recognising that these are not so much statement of fact, but rather affirmations of great and holy mysteries to be explored and encountered.

Inclusive Church

At Christ Church we are striving to be a community where everyone is welcomed, valued and included. We subscribe to the Inclusive Church Statement of Belief.

We believe in a church which seeks not to discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
