So often we think that being a Christian means being perfect but God doesn’t view it this way. He sees and loves us as we are. This is the message of our new series on ‘Imperfect Characters of Faith’. Today's video is about the disciples of Jesus, people hand-picked by Jesus to follow him. But were the disciples without fault? They struggle with all the things we struggle with, including wondering if they were as good as other people - how they compared to other people.
Watch the video to find out what Jesus teaches them about comparison.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Sunday 9am and 10.30am services in church, as we continue our series from the letter of James.
Book your place for all in person services and children’s and youth groups at the 10.30am service via: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/christ-church-ware-30649640088

As we get used to meeting together again and look to run all of our children’s Sunday morning activities we need to expand our pool of volunteers. Could this be you? A commitment to help even just once a month would be much appreciated. The children are great fun to be around and this is such an exciting ministry to be a part of.
Our new Toddler group has started and is on Mondays, 9.30 am to 10.30 am, in the Church Centre. It is for children starting to walk – rising 1s – up until age 3. Places are limited and admission will be by appointment. Please book by phoning the office from 9am on Wednesday to join in the session on the following Monday. The cost will be £1.50 per family. Places will need to be booked on a weekly basis. Further information will be sent out on sign-up.
We are delighted to say that crèche restarted on Sunday 6th June. You do need to book a ticket for those attending which can be done via our normal service booking link.
It will have a slightly different look and feel as we as we adapt to the Covid restrictions, however we know that those of you with young children will value it.
As we continue to enjoy meeting in-person on Sundays and mid-week on we really need more helpers especially on Sunday morning. If you are at all interested in helping please do speak to Jess.
Our Summer activities mornings – Summer Blast! – are in the planning stage. Sign up to help and save the date to help at Summer Blast! We will be running 3 activity mornings on the 10th, 17th and 24th August for 5-11 year olds and 3rd August for under 5s. If you are interested in helping at one or all of these then please do get in touch with Jess. Further details on how to book children in will come in due course but currently we need the team to enable this to happen. I promise it will be lots of fun- don’t miss out! Any questions get in touch.
Any and all offers of help please contact Jess firstname.lastname@example.org 07776 596561

Working party needed
As church continues to look to open and restart activities we are seeking two or three volunteers who would be willing to do a deep clean in the church centre kitchens. They have not been used for over a year so everything needs to be taken out of the cupboards and washed, the cupboards need to be wiped out and also the cookers need to be cleaned.
If you can help please let the office know. Thank you.
John and the Christ Church Team
