Community Of Christ the Servant
The ‘Community of Christ the Servant’ here at Christ Church was founded back in 1983 and although the formal community was disbanded a few years later, for fifteen years or so it remained a vibrant presence in the life of the church and the local community. More recently the community declined but never completely closed down. On the feast of Christ the King 2017, five people were commissioned to work together to discern a new way forward for the Community. A year later the Community has grown to nine and they are working re-establish the community. For further details see the CCS page.
Congregational Groups Go Live
Members of the congregation are invited to join a ‘congregational group’; but this is not compulsory!
This initiative has been developed over the past year. Recently groups began to take on responsibility for some of the routine tasks involved in the main Sunday service, such as welcoming people and providing refreshments afterwards. This helps to ensure that the same people are always not left doing the same work. Just as importantly it provide opportunities for people to get to know one another better. So far this has been working well and has also proved to be good fun. Groups are also encouraged to do their ‘own thing’; maybe to meet to pray or go out for lunch.
If you would like to join a group please speak to one of the church wardens.
