What to expect on Sundays
Do I have to come to the building for church?
No, you are welcome to come sign up to join us in the building or join our online live stream from home. Due to social distancing, space in the building will be limited. You may want to send one parent to the church building, while the rest of the family joins online and makes use of the Sunday School video. It’s important to stay at home if anyone in your household displays symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive.
Can I bring my children to church?
All children are welcome at Christ Church, including babies and toddlers. However children will have to stay in your family space during the service.
Will there be children’s groups?
There will be a group for primary school children during the service but no creche or youth group. Space in this group will be limited, with priority given to younger children.
Where can I go if my baby cries?
Sadly the creche room will not be available, but you are welcome to take a walk in the garden or use the upstairs rooms. (2 households per room maximum)
Where can I breastfeed my baby?

Where can I give my baby or toddler food?
You can give you children snacks during the service, however there won’t be tables set up for lunch after. You can use the church garden for lunch, following general social distancing guidelines in groups of no more than 6.
