Rev Paul Norrington

As Christians we are all seeking to grow in our understanding of Gods love and purpose for us. Studying readings from the Bible is a great place to start.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. (New Living Translation 2 Timothy 3:16)

During services we usually have a Sermon which has been defined as:

A part of worship in which the pastor proclaims the Word of God, based on the Word written in the Bible and applying it to the worshipping community as appropriate.

Learning from the Bible

Learning together

Home Groups

Christ Church organises several home groups that meet every two weeks, some in the evenings and some in the daytime. They give an opportunity to meet with other Christians, to learn about our faith, to pray together and to share lifes experiences with each other. If you would like to join a home group please contact Paul for details.

Alpha Course

Alpha Course

The Alpha course is designed primarily for people who aren’t churchgoers and each course is open to everyone who would like to attend

Why attend the Alpha course?

Guests do Alpha for a wide variety of reasons – some want to investigate whether God exists; others are concerned about what happens after death. Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples’ beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

If you would like to attend the next Alpha course at Christ Church please contact the Paul Norrington.
