A Warm Invitation and Welcome

As newly appointed ministers at Christchurch Rayleigh and Rayleigh Methodist we have been thrilled with the warm welcome we have received, into our local churches and the wider community of Rayleigh.

We are very much looking forward to sharing in the life of the community, and further developing the friendship between our two churches. one outcome of that collaboration is our joint live nativity as part of the Christmas lights switch on.

As Christians, Christmas is for us the coming of the Light of the World in Jesus. So we hope you will join us at one of our Christmas Services or events celebrating that wonderful light coming into the world. There is something for everyone!

Our Elders












The United Reformed Church endorses Elders as a vital part of the leadership of a congregation. Christ Church is fortunate that its 7 Elders, along with the minister, share responsiblility for the worship, day to day business and pastoral care of the congregation. Each Elder is linked to a church organisation and pastoral group, they are also the charity trustees.

To contact the Elders, please email the Church Secretary or phone Jean Hall on 01268 743148.
