CCA ChurchSuite


Children have loads of fun at Christ Church with special groups for every age. It’s a place to laugh and learn, play and pray, and enjoy being in the presence of our wonderful, loving, God!

Children are welcome every Sunday morning. Usually they meet in their own groups, but we also meet all together as a church family for All Age services. During the year there are also some special events.

Sunday Groups
