news 20150313

Dear Christ Church,


I start with some sad news.  Katie Travers (the Oasis student working with Jo Gavin) will be leaving us this Sunday.  Please see below a note from her:


I'm sorry to be telling you all this but Sunday 15th March (Mothering Sunday) is going to be my last Sunday at CCO. For personal reasons, I am taking a year out from my training to gain more experience of life. 

I can't thank you all enough for your loving support and encouragement throughout the last 18 months, I'm going to miss working with you all - and will especially miss the children! But I will always treasure my memories at CCO - the skills and confidence I have picked up will stay with me and I will always be so thankful for my time with Jo, Jay, Andrena and all of those who make up the children's team.

I wish you all the very best for the future and hope to see you all from time to time!



We wish Katie the very best for the future.  She will be sadly missed at Christ Church.


40 days with Jesus

Last week I mentioned this resource.  We would like to encourage everyone to follow the daily devotional guide and are therefore offering this book at the subsided price of £4.  Do complete the slip (available at the back of church) and return to me or the church office, with your £4, no later than Sunday 22nd March.


Big Church Day Out

This is at Wiston House, West Sussex on Saturday 23rd May.  It is actually a weekend event but we are encouraging people to attend the events on the Saturday.  It is suitable for all ages, with many activities arranged for children.  There are musicians of all types, a market-place, numerous eating establishments, and many other fun activities planned.  Do see the attached sheet for more information.  A sign-up sheet is available at the back of church.


Easter Services

The attached flier details our services over the Easter period.  Please do consider giving a copy to family and friends as you take this opportunity to invite them to Christ Church.



Kind regards,
