Welcome to Christ Church
On behalf of everyone, we welcome you to the Christ Church website. First and foremost, Christ Church is not a building but a relatively large Christian family spanning the years, whose aim is to know and care for each other as part of our commitment to Jesus Christ. Joining such a large family can be exciting but it can also be bewildering at times. This website is intended to help you understand some of what goes on here, and to help you become part of it.
Christ Church is an Anglican parish church - a member of the Church of England in the Diocese of Southwark. Our style is informal, friendly and welcoming, and we reflect this both in worship and other areas of church life. We are part of the New Wine Network, basing our teaching on biblical principles, applying it to our daily lives, and encouraging an openness to the prompting and leading of the Holy Spirit. Similarly we encourage an openness to hearing God through corporate and private prayer. Openness to the Holy Spirit and to God implies a willingness to allow change, to make discoveries and to grow spiritually.
The parish of Christ Church Purley takes the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Further information about this can be found at Safeguarding.
If, once you have been to this site, you would like more information, or there is a group you would like to join, do please phone the church office or talk to us at the next Sunday service you come to.
