There are many opportunities to volunteer at Christchurch and in the community. If you would like to join us in serving the community, do get in touch.


This is a small group, which has been running since 1973. Social events are planned both inside and outside the church. All are welcome.

Christians Against Poverty (CAP):

CAP is a nationwide charity which offers free debt counselling and support. We support the Hitchin Debt Centre which is run in partnership with Hitchin Christian Centre. You can find out more about how CAP can help here.


Daisychains is a sensory playgroup and support community for children aged 0-5 with additional needs and their carers. We are open to all and work closely with the children’s centres.

Meeting Needs:

 Every month a team goes out to deliver furniture and other items to people who need them. We work with local housing officers, charities and the council to identify need. Items are donated by members and friends of Christchurch.  Click here for more details.

Parents and Pre-School Group:

The weekly toddler group meets on Wednesday mornings between 10-12, offering a wide range of toys and activities. It is run by a committee of attending parents and all activities are led by the parents.   Read more about our activities for under 5s here.

Pastor Jan:

We have forged a recent a partnership with a Pastor Jan and his large church in Manila, in the Philippines (Good News Baptist Church). This is an exciting partnership which we pray will grow as we deepen friendships, offering prayer and some financial support towards the numerous small projects, with possible child sponsorship opportunities through Compassion.
