Christ Church Normal Weekly Services
|Sunday 8:30am||Holy Communion – A spoken service without any hymns (except at Festivals such as Christmas or Easter, when we sing a few hymns or carols), preferred by those who like an early, quiet and reflective service based on Common Worship CW2 (ie Book of Common Prayer). Breakfast is usually served Second and Fourth Sundays after the service|
|Sunday 10:00am||There are always toys and books in the children’s corner in Church for toddlers and babies.
First Sunday is Childrens’ Church, starting in church with singing from 10:00am and the service begins at 10:15am with a short time together for songs and a story and then into the hall for Childrens’ activities, refreshments and cake.

WORSHIP COMMITTEE – Christ Church
Our Worship Committee is co-ordinated by Linda Randall, Churchwarden and works closely with our Readers, service leaders and the Benefice Office. The committee’s function is to review past services and plan future services aiming to provide a balance between traditional and modern styles of worship for our congregations. The committee also reviews past festivals to identify areas that can be improved or changed in the future.
WORSHIP COMMITTEE – Tickenham
Clare Fraley, Deputy Churchwarden, co-ordinates this committee, which meets on a regular basis to discuss services, choose hymns and to discuss matters of concern from our congregation concerning worship.
