We have 12 informal groups that meet in homes and in the Church, weekly or fortnightly, providing an opportunity for fellowship, Bible study and the discussion of issues of interest from a Christian perspective.

Our Mission Statement for our Bible Study Groups is that:
'they be places where people can love and be loved, serve and be served, celebrate and be celebrated, and know and be known, in and through our study of the Bible, in order that we become more like Jesus Christ.'

We encourage Christ Church members to join their nearest group. For more information on joining a particular group, please email the church office for details of one near you.

Men's Bible Study Group
On Saturday mornings we have a weekly Bible study group for men starting at 7:30am for breakfast and the study from 8:00am-9:00am. Contact Scott for more information..

Community Bible Study
Community Bible Study International is on Tuesdays @ 9:30 am and Fridays at 9:30am and 7:45pm at Christ Church. A creche is provided on Tuesdays. For more information, coffee & brunch - come and see, or contact Elizabeth (Tuesdays and Friday mornings), Jill or Bruce (Friday evenings)

We follow an interesting and stimulating four-fold programme:
1. questions to answer at home.
2. group discussion to share thoughts and experiences.
3. a teaching talk which brings out truths and life applications from the passage.
4. a specially prepared commentary to read at home.

This year we are looking at the letter to the Romans, a wonderful book of the New Testament that teaches all the truths of the Gospel and how to apply them to our daily lives.

Between 40 and 50 of us meet together for a time of fellowship and friendship over coffee and study and thee is a crèche where the children are happily occupied. Why don't you join us? Everybody is welcome.

Meetings on:

Tuesdays: 9.30 - 11.30 a.m. at Christchurch (crèche)
Fridays: 9.30 - 11.30 a.m. at Anita Whitehead's home in Thorpe Green (01344 842958 no crèche)
7.30 - 9.30 p.m. at Christchurch (no crèche)

'Christianity Explored' is a ten week course designed to introduce you and your friends to the basics of the Christian faith. We will explore what the Bible says about Jesus Christ and how to know God personally. Topics include:

Who is Jesus?
Jesus - his crucifixion
Jesus - his resurrection
Grace - unwrapping the gift
What is a Christian?
You are never alone - the Church family

Christianity Explored assumes little or no knowledge of the Bible or any previous experience of the Christian faith. It is for all of us who have trouble telling the difference between an epistle and an apostle. Let Stephen know if you would like more information

"The right people in the right places for the right reasons"
That is our vision for Christ Church - each of us serving the Lord using the gifts and abilities God has given us to make Christ known and extend his kingdom. At Christ Church we regularly run the Network Seminar. Network is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
Christ Church is a member of the Willow Creek Association UK.
