Hope and support in a time of uncertainty

Due to the current high risk condition of COVI-19 alert, after much consideration, we have decided that there will be no public worship at Christ Church for the foreseeable future.  All the services will be live streamed so that all can join in, albeit 'virtually'..  Please visit this web site regularly to find up-to-date information on what is happening at Christ Church and in the community.  For further information, please see the COVID-19 Page.  The Church Office remains closed until further notice.  Please contact us if you need to speak to someone or for support with practical matters or spiritual issues. (See contact details on the right.)

The Season of Lent 2021

Since early days Christians have observed with great devotion the time of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and have prepared for this by a season of penitence and reflection. Lent 2021 brings a particular poignancy as the world remains in the grip of a global pandemic.

Lent Discussion Series

During Lent we will be exploring our relationship with God's good creation, of which we are a part, through a series of 5 weekly Zoom meetings at 7:30 on Wednesday evenings [Click on the image of the green sprout below to connect to the Zoom meeting].  The meetings will take the form of discussions and reflections on a short video related to the environment and climate change from a faith perspective.  After the discussions, for any who wish to remain, there will be an opportunity for informal chat and connection over a cup of coffee or glass of wine!!

We know that we are all tired of on-line communication but look at it this way: This year you do not have to brave a winter evening, you can participate in the comfort of your own home!

Wednesday 17 February: Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday 24 February: Lent Series 1 - What the Bible says about the natural world
Wednesday 3 March: Lent Series 2 - Climate change is a poverty issue
Wednesday 10 March: Lent Series 3 - Grateful for fossil fuels but time to move on
Wednesday 17 March: Lent Series 4 - Climate change is a threat multiplier
Wednesday 24 March: Lent Series 5 - It is not too late

Welcome to Christ Church South Nutfield

Christ Church is a thriving centre of Christian life and activity and seeks to be a spiritual caring heart to our village community. Our congregation spans ages 0-90+ and we welcome all: those of the Anglican faith, those from other Christian traditions, those who are seeking faith and those who are merely curious.

We would describe ourselves as being on the evangelical end of the Anglican church spectrum, but as a parish church for all local people, seek to offer a variety of styles of Sunday worship, plus other weekday activities. You are welcome to join us at any of our services and there is always an opportunity for a cuppa and chat afterwards.

Sunday Services

Christ Church has a service every Sunday at 10.00 am, following a fixed monthly schedule. Music for worship on 2nd and 3rd Sunday mornings is led by our worship band with modern songs. On the 1st, 4th and 5th Sundays it is led by the organ and choir with more traditional hymns.

Our Church Family Service on the 2nd Sunday of each month is especially geared up to include our children and be accessible and informative for all ages.

Children's Groups and Services

Our children’s groups normally meet twice a month in term time, on 1st and 3rd Sundays (and also on 5th if there is one.) The children come into church for communion towards the end of the service.

We all join together for our Church Family Service on the 2nd Sunday each month.

Little Fishes is a short service for families/carers with children 0-3 on the first Sunday each month. We have songs, story, game, craft, with chat and refreshments after. It takes 30 minutes and then families can choose to stay with us for refreshments or go into church for communion.

Rise and Shine is a short service particularly suitable for primary school children and their parents, held at 9.00am on the fourth Sunday of every month, which includes activities, and is followed by breakfast.

Home Groups

Belonging to a home group is probably the best way of growing as a Christian. A primary purpose is to study the bible but also provide the chance to discuss those questions about faith which need a more in-depth consideration than can be given on a Sunday.

Open House

Open House is aimed at post Alpha candidates, parents/carers/commuters and young adults who find the usual mid week home groups difficult to attend because of work, college and/or young family commitments.

It provides an opportunity to meet in a relaxed atmosphere, to encourage us in our faith, to deepen our knowledge, to grow in the love of Jesus and to be part of a caring and supportive group.  The sessions give time to learn about the bible through The Bible Course, for discussion and worship too.

Open House takes place in the Thompson Room, on the 1st Saturday of each month, 4.50pm, with sessions commencing at 5pm, finishing at 6.30pm.

Sunflower Cafe

The Sunflower Cafe offers everyone a welcome from 10.30 to 12 noon every Wednesday morning in the Christ Church Centre, with tea or coffee and cakes, and the chance to get to know other people in the village. Once a month this incorporates the Hear Here hearing aid service.
