'Welcome Back services' at Chr
You are all invited to re-connect with the Christ Church family in September and October.
Focused on Jesus and who he said “I AM..” we will be gathering and worshipping together to share stories and rebuild the whole body of Christ here in Purley.
The services are for everyone with the intention of leaving no one out or left behind.
Help us make that a reality from 12th September

CCF Transform Croydon 2021 prayer booklet.  
This year, because of lockdown restrictions and the difficulties of distribution, the decision was taken to present the work electronically, rather than by printing as usual.  
As you read, it is the hope that you will be encouraged to see how the Croydon church has responded to the pandemic and has adapted to difficult conditions with great resilience and fortitude.
