The Congregational Meeting is the heart, mind, ears and voice of Christchurch. It meets regularly for worship, discussion and to reach a consensus on all aspects of church life.

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.

As a partnership between two denominations, we are part of the North Herts Methodist Circuit (14 churches) and the North Herts Local Area Group of the URC (8 churches).
