Keeping our church community together during lockdown
We are also holding weekly prayer meetings at 7pm every Wednesday via Zoom. Please contact the office if you need details on how to access these or have any prayer requests.
We are sharing reflections and articles from our church newsletter over on our news page. You can also see the latest posts from this in the sidebar. Our social media channels are also kept updated regularly with reflections, prayers and news.
For more details about the ways in which we are continuing to be church remotely throughout this time, please see our COVID-19 page.
The latest updates from the URC relating to the coronavirus pandemic can be found here. The Methodist Church also has a page on their website with updates and resources relating to the coronavirus pandemic.
News on the Reopening of the Church Buildings – From the Church Council
Church Council is responsible for deciding when the buildings can be opened for Sunday services. A Risk Assessment was presented to council and approved at their video conference meeting earlier this week. We are keen to re-open the building but also concerned for the safety of our congregation. Although we are not opening immediately, in this strange and fast changing world, the position is under review on a regular basis. A team is, however, looking into the reopening as soon as it is practical to do so.
If you would be willing and able to come to the church for services when they restart, say in the autumn, please let us know, via the church office, so we can gauge numbers. You can call the office on 01895 258956 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The URC have produced a personal risk assessment tool to help people assess their own level of risk for attending services which you may find useful. You can access it here.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: 20/03/2020
Statement from Church Council:
As part of the UK precautions relating to the COVID-19 virus the church buildings will be closed until further notice.
For urgent matters please telephone 01895 258956 or e-mail email@example.com
For devotional aids please visit the worship page on our website, or our Facebook page, or see our window display.
We pray for God’s help and guidance at this time and will give notice of return to usual operation in due course.
Underneath the pyramid roof and opposite the bus station, this busy building is more than a place of worship. Purpose built for community use, we are home to many groups.
What we believe
Christ Church is both the Methodist and United Reformed Church in Uxbridge. We have one membership and are part of both denominations. Our mission statement is as follows:
“The purpose of Christ Church is to show the love of God in the heart of Uxbridge by being a worshipping, caring community which accepts people as they are and helps them live life to the full.”
Our founding vision for this church is to be a place of care in the urban community of Uxbridge, because as Christians that is our challenge.
By offering a safe and comfortable place to the community, we believe we begin to share God’s call to wholeness, justice and peace for all.
~ The love of God in the heart of Uxbridge ~
An Inclusive Church
Christ Church is also an Inclusive Church. Inclusive Church is a group of Christians uniting together around our statement of belief:
“We believe in inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
