Christchurch Central is a real highlight of the week at Christchurch. We run a number of groups on a Wednesday for our church family to meet and to read God’s Word together and to encourage one another to live for Jesus in every area of life. Each Wednesday we meet at 7:15 for a meal together for those who would like, and then groups run from 7:45-9:15.

Christchurch Central is comprised of the following groups running alongside one another:

What Christians Believe

Would you like to go deeper into the Bible and learn more about what Christians believe? If you’re new to our church family and would call yourself a Christian, this is the ideal course for you. Each week there will be a talk on one of the essentials of biblical Christianity, followed by a time to discuss, ask questions and pray together. New groups begin at least three times a year. If you’d like to find out more to get in touch with us.

Partnership Matters

This short course follows on from ‘What Christians Believe’ and is for those wishing to join Christchurch. Its aim is to explain clearly what it means to be part of our church family in practice. 

Christianity Explored

Whether you are a convinced skeptic, a confused believer or just curious about Christianity, this five-week course allows you to investigate the claims of Jesus for yourself. Each session contains a short explanation of an aspect of the Christian faith followed by a chance to ask and discuss any questions you might have. There is a meal served beforehand for those who would like it. We run a number of these courses during the year. For further details please contact us at

If you would like more information or would like to join a group at Christchurch Central, please email Rob Parson.

If you have small children and therefore can’t make it along to Christchurch Central on Wednesday evenings, then please contact Al Barratt for more information about a Women’s Bible Study we run.
