In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Please see the letter from the Archbishops for their advice and encouragement.
In these anxious times the Christ Church family will respond as a family does - praying together and looking out for each other. We are lucky enough to have the organisational structure to provide communication, support and encouragement for each other and that will hold us all together through the days ahead.
Lore will continue to conduct services at the regular times of 10am on Sundays and 11am on Thursdays, which can be streamed via the official Christ Church Facebook page:
You can keep up-to-date with our news via our weekly bulletin. For online chat and other social engagement with the Christ Church community, there is also the linked Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/548084475257946/. The Christ Church Twitter feed is at https://twitter.com/ChristChBath.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We want Christ Church to welcome everybody, to be a focus for the good news of the Gospel and to be a central point for the community. To help us achieve this, we need to improve our facilities.
Following on from the recent news that the faculty has been granted for the East End reorganistion project, work is now under way on the new furniture. We received a message from Treske, the furniture builders, to say that they are continuing to work despite the current difficult circumstances and they have sent us some photos of the early stages of the work in progress.
