More Information about our Church

Christ Church, is at 151 Manchester Rd, London, E14 3DR, at the southern tip of the loop in the River 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.

Christ Church belongs to the liberal catholic tradition of the Church of England. Our worship is beautiful, using colour, music, teaching, drama and poetry. Please find our music programmme 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. This is live-streamed for major festivals.There is Sunday School for children who are 3 and over, and there is a carpeted area at the back of church for smaller children and their parents. We share older children and youth work with other churches in the area.

Please follow the link to access our noticesheet  for the coming Sunday here.

We also post our latest news on the Christ Church IOD Facebook page.
