Men@CC

imageProv 27:17  As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Faith is a journey.... and we can struggle with the walk alone, or we can find strength and support in doing it together.  We have several men’s groups doing various activities, doing life together and supporting one another.  So whether you enjoy walking, camping, golf, Bible Study or prayer, there is a men’s group for you.  We also encourage guys to be in a Home Group, but it is good to get together as men, look out for one another, have fun, and learn together.  If you would like to more details then either email us at , or contact us individually:
Bible Study (weekly, breakfast and study) – Ken Edwards
Camping (ad hoc weekends) – Brent Owens
Prayer groups (weekly/monthly, evening, food, chat & pray) – Brent Owens, Will Bissett
Walking (monthly) – Dave Thomas
We'll be more than happy to tell you about our respective groups, and welcome you along if you want to join with us!  It's always good to have new men join us on the journey.

Prayer Room Permanently Open 09:00 - 16:00

imageFollowing on from the success of the Thy Kingdom Come prayer room leading up to Pentecost, we have dedicated the far room in the Patio extension to prayer.  Open during office hours, please come and use as you feel the need.  No advance booking required.

SAVE THE DATE! CEILIDH

SAVE THE DATE! "BURNS NIGHT FOR BURUNDI"
SATURDAY 20 JANUARY 2018

On 20 Jan (7-10.30pm) Christ Church will stage a Burns Night & Ceilidh in aid of New Generation, our mission partner that helps street children in Burundi, the poorest country in the world.
 
Tickets on sale from mid November. The evening will feature:
  • our very own Will Bissett piping in the haggis and reciting Burns’ famous poem, “Ode to a Haggis”
  • a highly recommended professional caller who will show us how to dance the Dashing White Sergeant, Strip the Willow, and other favourites
  • Finger buffet, free soft drinks and a donation bar
  • Silent auction of gifts & promises
 So get your dancing shoes on – kilts are optional, but very welcome! This is an opportunity to invite friends & neighbours to a fun event at Christ Church to help some of the most deprived children in the world.
 We would like to offer a range of silent auction items e.g. 3 hours of gardening, a lift to the airport, dog walking, all the way up to a week in a holiday home.
 We plan to have a big team of helpers – so those helping can each do an hour, and still enjoy the event, rather than serving all evening. Helpers needed to sell tickets after services, to set up the church beforehand (3-4.30pm), to serve food, and to clear up and set out the church for Sunday.
 If you would like to be join the helping team, or have something for the silent auction, please contact Rod Whitehead (, 0780 330 9230).
