Christ Church URC

Knowing Jesus and making Him known 

We strive to be an inclusive church welcoming all people, including those who see themselves as having additional or special needs or a disability.We believe we are all made in the image of God and that all people, irrespective of age, ethnicity, race, sexuality, social status and gender have a part to play in serving God and making him known.We look to provide opportunities for all people to encounter Jesus Christ and to remove barriers that so often lead to exclusion whilst empowering all people, including those with disabilities, to identify what purpose God has for our lives, providing fellowship and equipping us all to serve in his kingdom.

The building has disabled access, a disabled lavatory and a hearing loop system.Large print hymn books and orders of service are also available.Do please just ask if we can help.We already have a number of people with special needs joining us for worship each Sunday and playing a valuable part in the life of the church and we also have a Messy Church specifically for families & Carers and their children.
