ABOUT US

Christ Church is a Reformed Baptist Church made up of local residents who want to know and worship the Triune God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We meet for Sunday worship and for midweek bible Teaching Meetings on alternate Thursdays.

 

Christ Church seeks to continue the gospel witness to the people of our neighbourhood that was established on the site of the building on Herbert Street over a hundred years ago by Independent Methodists.
