Welcome to Christ the King Online
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.
In an emergency please contact the churchwarden or Dave Barter on 0117 9311955.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
Church is not closed. Church is changing.
Church is people following Jesus 24th March 2020
Whether you’re a new born, 8 or 80 years old, we hope you’ll find a warm welcome to our church.
You’re especially welcome if you are “just visiting” or “exploring” your faith.
As a church we have four core values:
- Growing our Christlikeness
- Loving our Neighbours
- Serving our Community
- Sharing our Faith
For more information about our Christian Values visit out Christian Faith page.
Being new in a church or city can be full of opportunities as well as sometimes a little daunting. We would love to help you settle in any way that we can. Please feel free to call anyone on the Staff Team for more details.
