On the 26th February 2018 Christchurch has been afforded Benefice status within the Diocese of Bath and Wells  with Revd Clive Jennings being inducted as the  Vicar of the new Benefice of Christchurch Clevedon. Clive was inducted by the Archdeacon of Bath and the Revd Donna Wilkie was similarly licensed as curate of Christchurch. The creation of  a new  Christchurch Benefice within  the Diocese of Bath and Wells will bring little change to the what has been for many years a thriving and innovative Methodist/Anglican Ecumenical Partnership, it’s life, mission, outreach and growth.  It will however clarify matters within the wider Anglican Church setting. We give thanks to God for this innovative and exciting part of our continued and evolving ministry......

Last Saturday, Christchurch was filled with joy, laughter, worship, prayer, singing, praising and, of course plenty of chatter(!), as friends old and new met up for our Women’s Day 2018.  A BIG thank you to the 136 ladies who came along and made it such a special occasion. Anne Calver, a speaker at New Wine, gave two inspiring talks during the day (available on our website under Growing > Teaching). We heard two blessed and thought-provoking Testimonies. Thanks also go to the Men’s Team of helpers, the Tech Team and the Worship Team for all their support (Julian’s first year leading the Worship Team was a great success), to the bakers for their delicious cakes and to Gwen for the beautiful flowers.......

The Festival was a great success with over 800 visitors over the weekend!

We raised around £1500 which will be shared between YMCA, Springboard Opportunity Group and Christchurch. Thank you to everyone involved for taking the time and effort at a very busy time of year.
