Worship at Home

Recent Government guidelines mean we are unable to offer public worship at the present time.
But we continue to be the Christchurch community!

Use this page for resources to join together in worship at home.
(Below!) Each week, you’ll find:

  • a ‘Worship at Home’ sheet, themed round the Lectionary readings
  • Children’s resources courtesy of Louise
  • There will be a Live stream of a short Sunday service at 10.45am each week (accessible from our YouTube channel). Don’t forget to sign up to join us ‘live’ and to share all our other community news during the week!
  • Video download – after the event, the Sunday service will be available to all to download from this page. If you already subscribe to the Christchurch podcast feed, you will see it appear automatically. Some ‘pod-catchers’ support video but, if you gather your sermon podcasts from ChurchSuite, you will only get audio, so download directly from the link below.
  • We also have an archive of Thought for Today – daily postings by church members during the earlier part of lockdown.
