Christmas at Christ Church 2017!
2017 has marked the 150th anniversary of our church - a time of remembering, celebrating, and giving thanks for the life of our church and the local community.
In the midst of the excitement, we hope that over Christmas in this anniversary year you will be able to join us to remember, celebrate and give thanks for the birth of Jesus Christ, who is God with us. We know that Christmas is not the easiest time for everyone and whether you want space for reflection, or celebration and activity, there is something for you.
