What better way to start the day?
Dambusters is a long-running Dads and Toddlers group that meets one Saturday morning a month in the church hall adjoining Christ Church. In a relaxed and friendly setting, the children have some special time to share with Dad in creative play, stories and songs. Equally, men can enjoy a chat with the other Dads and our all-male team over a cup of real coffee and a bacon roll. As the session ends at 10am, you'll still have most of the day left for activities as a family.
Do come along to a session soon. It's best to arrive by 9am to take full advantage of our activities. New members are always welcome
Caters for children from 6 months to 5 years with soft play, story time, and songs. Toast, tea and real coffee also available

Please note that there is a waiting list for this groups at present - please contact the church office for more information
Drop-In Coffee Morning
We have been meeting on Tuesday mornings since early 1997. Our aim is to do our part in extending Christ Church’s warm welcome to neighbours and friends, so everyone is welcome to come for coffee or tea and cakes. It’s a very informal time to drop in for a chat, or to stay a little longer to meet friends and make new ones.
As well as enjoying each other’s company we have been able to donate to local charities. If you would like to join us, do drop in on a Tuesday morning between 10am and 12 noon. You will be more than welcome.
These Tuesday mornings have been run by Angela and Peter Gambling and Joyce and Tom Fitch over this time and we have all set up and run the "Drop-in" between us, only missing when we are on holiday. Tom and Joyce would rather like to now take a back seat in running these mornings, and wonder if there are any folks that would be willing to take our place on a rota basis. We are delighted to say that one couple have offered their services, but we need more. If any one feels they would like to help with this service we would be pleased to hear from you
Mens Pub Evening
There is a men’s pub evening on the 2nd Tuesday of each month currently meeting in The Coach and Horses at 8pm. This is being organized as a team event so anyone wanting to go along and meet up with friends from the other team Churches, this is a wonderful opportunity.
Ladies on Thursdays
Thursday mornings in the Church Hall at 9.30am for Women to explore - and grow - in the Christian faith. Coffee and Crèche included!
Did you know that there is a service held at Christ Church on the first Monday of every other month called ‘Pensioners’ Praise’? You don’t have to be a pensioner to come!
Pensioners’ Praise was started in August 1989 by a small team, who felt that it would be a special opportunity for people who have retired from the daily routine of having to go out to work to enjoy learning more about God.
In August 2009 Pensioners’ Praise celebrated its 20th Anniversary
Just come, we would love to have you with us. We meet bi-monthly, always on a Monday at 2pm at Christ Church. There are guest speakers at each meeting We will try to arrange transport where needed. Please contact the office if this is required
If you would like to know more, please speak to Carole Bendrey, Gordon Eames or the Church Office
