Who we are

Christchurch is a church where everyone is welcomed, where all are known individually and celebrated for who they are, and where all are nurtured to grow more like Christ.

We try to be an authentic and extraordinary community filled with a love that embodies acceptance, diversity, empowerment, and unity; a community that can be described as a ‘second home’ and that provides a place of welcome, safety and healing.

Christchurch is a united church joining two Christian denominations. We are part of the North Hertfordshire Methodist Circuit and the North Hertfordshire Local Area Group (itself part of the Thames North Synod) of the United Reformed Church.

Christchurch is a charity, and the Christchurch Trustees fulfil the legal and financial responsibilities of the Charity as they oversee the life and work of Christchurch in accordance with the Constitution.
