GrowCaring for one another and cheering each other on
Tuesday Evenings in the Church @ 7.15 for a 7.30 start and finishing promptly at 8.30: our Minister, Bishop Josep, leads us through the vital creation account in Genesis, with time to discuss and ask questions. The Bishop's talks are recorded and a link to the recording appears in the weekly newsletter.
The Tuesday evening Genesis sessions have taken the place of home groups, which will re-start early in 2020, with the opportunity they offer to get to know one another better.
Opportunities to Serve
There are always opportunities to serve in the church and community once people are established in the Church. We encourage our members to use their God-given talents to the full.
Prayer is very important to the life of Christ Church. There is time to pray during the worship.
We have prayer meetings every Thursday morning, 9-10am, and every other Sunday evening at 7.15pm.
Join our Internet Prayer Meeting via Zoom at 8.30pm on Monday evenings. To connect to the group, please contact Antony Norris by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07908 112100. This is great for anyone, but especially those who cannot leave their home in the evenings for various reasons.
There is prayer available at the end of the morning service, and at Home Groups which run on a Tuesday and Wednesday evening. We offer prayer at our Toddler Group on a Monday morning and at 4Women, once a month, on a Monday evening.
If you would like to receive prayer and you are not yet coming to Christ Church, please ring the Church Office and we will get back to you.
A group from Christ Church attended this Cornish summer festival in 2019. The theme was Celebrating the Good News of a God who loves us. Proud to be a free-to-attend, gospel-centred festival. Free because they believe that the good news of a God who loves us should be freely shared, freely heard and free for all.
Overnight camping fees apply, day visitors are free. 2020 dates are now published as 1-7 August at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre, Wadebridge. More details https://creationfest.org.uk/
We have a student doing a degree at the Exeter Campus of ForMission in Theology and Mission. The degree is very practical, aimed at preparing students for working in churches, and they involve 13 hours per week of placement in a church. Our ForMission student is an intrinsic part of Christ Church.
A number of individuals and families have attended New Wine from Christ Church. New Wine exists to see local churches changing nations. For two weeks of the summer holidays, we head west for United, where we gather in our thousands to celebrate all God has been doing and continues to do in our lives.
