Learning and growing in faith for all ages, be that formally or informally, is a vital aspect of our life as Christian disciples, and plays a significant part in deepening our life as a community of faith. Whether it be quietly reading and reflecting at home, participating in one off sessions or a series, or being part of an ongoing group, we hope that at Christ Church there is something to meet the needs, desires, and different learning styles of a varied congregation.
Journeys in Faith Sunday sessions normally take place in the Church Centre after the 10am service on the 1st Sunday of the month. The programme consists of a mix of information sessions about different causes which the church supports, either internationally or in the UK; discussion of different aspects of Christian faith and practice (e.g. biblical, historical or theological themes); and practical sessions on different aspects of the church's life (e.g. training for Area Visitors). Recent and current themes for discussion are 'Women of Faith', Inter-Faith Issues, and Religion and Science. Each session starts at 11:30am in the Church centre – pick up your coffee from the church hall after the service and bring it along!

During the year, we have courses to learn about different times in the Christian year. This usually includes courses running in Advent and Lent. Below are some examples of ways we were learning more about our Church.
