Christchurch Abbeydale is an ecumenical church founded by four denominations; Baptist, Church of England, Methodist and United Reformed, all worshipping together as one congregation and as part of a wider LEP which encompasses other churches in the area. Our church sits in a suburban residential area, three miles east of the city centre, on a prominent site opposite a Morrisons' supermarket. The flexible multipurpose worship area comfortably seats 185 and is equipped with a sunken baptistry, font, communion-table, computer, three LED audio-visual screens and a sound system with a loop for the hard of hearing. The overall effect makes for a light, airy and welcoming feel to the building.
We welcome children of all ages. A crèche is available for pre-school children and there is also a Junior Church where children stay with us for the first part of the service and then go with the Youth Leader to take part in planned activities.
