75th Anniversary Concert featuring choirs, orchestra and guest artists. Hopefully this will feature many musicians from the past who have returned for this special weekend.

Sunday 11 May 10.30 2014

75th Anniversary Service conducted by our Minister Revd. Pauline Sparks and with guest preacher Revd. Dr. Michael Jaggesar the Moderator of the General Assembly of the URC. This will be followed by coffee, a buffet lunch, a few short speeches and a chance to meet up with old friends and view the exhibitions. At 4pm the celebrations will conclude with a communion service in the Church and a time for quiet reflection on the good things of the past and on the exciting challenges of the future.
There will also be a book ‘Christ Church- The first 75 years’ which will be available for purchase from the beginning of April.
