Ash Wednesday with Bishop James

We were delighted to welcome the Bishop of Rochester, James Langstaff and the Archdeacon, Simon Burton-Jones to Christ Church on Ash Wednesday.

This was an important occasion in the life of our community and gave us the opportunity to present our hopes and dreams for the future of Christ Church to the bishop.

Cluster Lent course: Faith Pictures

During the season of Lent, the Chatham cluster of churches are joining together to run a lent course based on the Faith Pictures material from the Church Army.


  • Tuesday mornings (10:30am) at the Emmaus Centre, Clover Street
  • Wednesday evenings (7:30pm) at All Saints Church, Magpie Hall Road


Faith Pictures is a short course designed to help Christians talk naturally to friends, neighbours and colleagues about what they believe. The heart of the course is about helping people to identify a single picture or image that says something of their faith. This is because the kinds of communication which best stick in the mind are concrete and rooted in story. Each session contains a short video and encourages discussion in pairs and as a whole group.


Anyone is welcome to come along!
