Christchurch, Lower Broadheath

Activities

School family services

Once a month the whole school attends a 9.15am morning service in church, led by members of the congregation. These lively and interactive services are open to family and parishioners as well. Action songs, shadow puppets, drama and music making bring the gospel to life and introduce the children to the essential elements of Anglican worship.

Services this Spring & Summer:

 

20th March, 10th April, 22nd May, 19th June, 10th July

 

Prayer meetings

Prayer is at the heart of the Christian life. Members of several denominations meet informally in someone's home to pray for the world, our community and individuals. All are welcome and prayer requests can be left in church on our Prayer Tree.

 

Open The Book

Coordinated by members of Christ Church, this is another activity which brings together people from different churches. The group runs a fortnightly assembly in the School, bringing bible stories to life through acting, singing and storytelling. Different classes also take part in the activity, increasing children's knowledge and understanding of the Old and New Testaments.

 

Baptism thanksgiving

We have a healthy number of babies born in the parish and are delighted to welcome them and

their families in Baptism. We like to hold regular  Thanksgiving parties where families who have had a baptism come together to celebrate and give thanks for their children's development.

 

Welcome Folder

Broadheath is expanding rapidly with new housing popping up all over the place. To  welcome newcomers and help them settle in, the Church has teamed up with the Parish Council and Taylor Wimpey to produce a handy Welcome Folder. Volunteers deliver one to every new family in the village, ensuring it contains up to date information about community activity, local businesses and organisations.

If you'd like to receive a copy of the Welcome folder please use the Contact Us button.

Palm Sunday

 

Jesus rode a donkey into Broadheath - but it was a puppet, decorated with ribbons! Singing and waving large palm fronds in the Spring sunshine, the puppet's attendants were cheered and tooted as they processed from the allotments along the Martley Road, to the church.

The very well behaved 'donkey' was welcomed in.
