Christmas at Christ Church 2019!

In the midst of general election campaigning, we would love to see you at one of our Christmas events as we celebrate God’s Good News for all People. There is, as always, plenty going on for all the family.

Do look out particularly for our carol service with St Christopher’s Hospice which marks our collaboration in the area of dementia care.

Merry Christmas!

Rev Jonathan Croucher, Vicar
