Sunday 8th May 

 

 

Welcome! I am Fr. Tom Pyke and I am the Vicar of Church of England Parish of the Isle of Dogs, London. Our church,  Christ Church, is on Manchester Road at the southern tip of the loop in the Thames (we call it ‘the Island’).     

The congregation comes from many nationalities,  traditions and denominations and reflects the diversity of  the Island’s changing population – personally, I have worked in the Parish since November 2006. Before that I was vicar and industrial chaplain in Birmingham. I combine my work in the parish with work as Staff Chaplain in the Royal Navy's Maritime Reserve Headquarters, duties which I mostly carry out online.

Christ Church belongs to the catholic tradition of the Church of England. Our worship is beautiful, using colour, music, teaching, drama and poetry. Please find our music program for the month at the bottom of this page.

Our community is relaxed and welcoming. We have different groups offering children’s work during the week. The focal point of our life together is the Parish Mass at 11am on Sunday.

We welcome people who want to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith.

Throughout the current period of COVID-19 our services were held online as Zoom meetings and some have beeen recorded for you to listen to again here

Please visit our Prayer Page to remember in prayer those who are sick and those who have died. Names are published with the consent of the individual or the family.

Giving local churches depend on the generosity of their members and the local community. Christ Church Isle of Dogs is no different.
