Christ Church has been meeting for over 150 years for the preaching of the Gospel of Christ. We were founded by people concerned that no faithful Christian witness was to be found in Teddington, and we still continue to preach Christ as sole Saviour.
Our Sunday Services are held at 11am and 6.30pm, in our refurbished church building, along Christchurch Avenue, and behind the very visible old Victorian church building, which was erected in 1869, but which was sold recently due to the cost of its upkeep.
We have a simple Sunday Service in which those attending have an active part in prayer and singing. In the morning the service has some of its elements and structure taken from the English Prayer Book. Prayer and worship take up about half the service (we use 'Christian Hymns' for our hymnbook), and the pastor preaches from the Bible alone for the other half. Once a month, or thereabouts, we celebrate the Lord's Supper during our Morning Service.
In the evening the service is a lot less structured, with hymns, prayer, Bible reading, and a sermon being its regular elements.
The hymns we sing are a mixture of traditional and modern, and we also sing Psalms on occasion. The preaching is expository, taking consecutive sections of Biblical Books to address in each week's sermon. The Bible we use at the moment is the ESV - which combines a high level of accuracy in translation with a reasonable level of accessibility in the language it uses.
Following both Sunday services we have a time of fellowship, with tea, coffee, biscuits, and discussion.
