Connecting with God and one another
Connecting with one another is a central aspect of our vision at Christ Church and we strive to offer events and activities which will make these connections a possibility. Below you will find a description of many of the activities – keep an eye out on the Home Page for schedule updates.

The outing takes place in Manchester on chosen Sunday. The choir sings the National Anthem and the Rev. David Holroyd will throw out a ceremonial first pitch. This is the typical timetable:
