Cafe Vista is open Tuesday –
Friday: 10.30 – 3.30 pm until August 25th.

No Saturday breakfasts over August.  Everyone welcome.

New kitchen for Café Vista

Such has been the incredible success of this key ministry that our existing facilities are altogether inadequate.  So we are commissioning a kitchen more suited to the number of customers as well as improving health and safety provision.  This will mean the cafe will need to close from August 29th until September 19th.  There will be no access to the first floor conference rooms during this period for any purpose.

Only the Brave Tour

This Spring Harvest event takes place on Wednesday, 20 September at Fulwood Free Methodist church, beginning 7.30 pm.   Info from the website:

Giving to Christ Church
If you are considering supporting Christ Church through planned financial giving, please see one of the wardens (Jaime Craig, David Dennison, Jenny Rawcliffe and Ann Roberts,) who will advise you what to do. Alternatively, you may enquire at the Parish Office or speak with Neil Heyes, the PCC treasurer. 

Our charity number is 1129036. If you give cash in the offering, please consider using one of the blue envelopes at the back of church for one-off gifts.  It simply means that we can probably increase your offering by 25% through Gift Aid.  Please write your name – otherwise we cannot claim a tax refund. If you use these regularly, it would probably be easier to belong to the envelope scheme.  Contact Jen Ray (421671).

You may support our ministry financially by sending a text to 70070. Just text CCAX99 £aa, where aa is the amount to be given.
