Christchurch Durham Corona Virus Update

Important notice about COVID 19 (Coronavirus)

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement and the direction issued by the Government on 16th March, our physical gatherings, including Sunday services at Christchurch and Grace Church, together with all midweek and small group ministries, including Sticky Fingers, have been suspended. 

We are currently running many of our meetings online and details of how to access this and what is running are available on the calender page as well as the events pages of this website.


Christchurch has been, and is continuing to closely monitor the development of Coronavirus, and we are committed to protecting the welfare of our church family as best we can at this increasingly difficult time. We are seeking to respond to the pandemic by carefully responding to Government advice in a way which is reasonable, sensible and proportionate in a rapidly-changing public health landscape.

If you do find yourself in a period of mandated or voluntary self-isolation, please inform us by emailing the office so that pastoral staff can be in touch during this difficult time so that you don't feel secluded from church family.

Many of you will be feeling understandably anxious about the days that lie ahead. Paul writes: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:6-7). We must pray for God’s mercy on us and on our nation and for those in authority taking decisions for our welfare, and that ultimately God would be glorified as many in our city and across our nation would turn to Christ for salvation.
