"Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people." (Philemon v7)

Dear friends

Let's pray that the lessons of Philemon both refresh and challenge us all. Please do read on for updates and news. 

With His love, your friend and brother,

building opening - update 3rd AUGUST

Many thanks to all those who replied. We're now busy reading all your ideas and prayerfully considering what things might look like from September. Watch this space!

gardening helper required

If you could spare an hour or so from time to time, to help Desirée in the gardens that would be really appreciated. Do email Adam if that’s you.


Bible studies are on summer holidays but on Wednesdays in August, 8pm, there'll be a chance to catch up informally with whoever is around!. Just use the normal Sunday coffee zoom details, or ask Adam if you need access.

New to Christ Church? This will be a great way to say "hi" and meet one or two - we'd love to meet you!


Just to let you all know, we're still eagerly and prayerfully anticipating making this appointment. The PCC are keen to work closely with the Diocese of London and given we're all now in holiday season, we've decided to press pause on the application process but will revisit things in the autumn once conversations and plans can resume.


for us


These look absolutely brilliant. Why not buy a copy for 1 Thessalonians ready for September, ready to make notes, doodles and jottings in the sermons and Wednesday evening studies? (Remember, once we're back in church we won't have pew Bibles - so why not buy one of these and bring it along?) Or, if enough express interested and email me by Friday, I'll bulk order and work out how to get them to you in time -  for only £2 each!


Something not on screen! Lark in the Ark
