This Sunday we get to explore together the promise that God is with us from Psalm 23. Why not read it before the service, so that you can be allowing God to be speaking to you as we immerse ourselves in his word and presence.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Sunday 9am and 10.30am services in church, as we continue in our new series on ‘Promises of God to live by’. There is no need to book and all the other changes can be found HERE.
You can also join us as usual every Sunday at 10.30am on our Livestream.
If you have missed any of our services or want to watch them again do subscribe to our YouTube channel for all the latest updates and past video’s www.youtube.com/ChristChurchWare

Christ Church PCC is supporting The Dust Project appeal where (Charlotte Bolton works) for donations to fund emergency food parcels in Sri Lanka following a triple whammy of disasters to hit the northern communities- Sri Lanka has suffered more than many communities from the effects of Covid, has had to endure flooding on an unprecedented scale and the fishing communities have been decimated by the shipwreck containing plastic recycling that sank, polluting the seas with oil and plastic pellets.
£7.50 will feed a family for a week. If you feel able to support their emergency fund please use this link- https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/donation-web/charity?charityId=1010833&stop_mobi=yes
