There's lots going on at Christ Church Alsager! Our activities are open to anyone - you don't need to be a member - although some are for a particular age group (eg children or youth). Just come as you are!
There are lots more ways of getting involved. Do find out more by having a look round our website or you can get in touch with the church office and we'll be happy to help ...but the best idea is to come and see for yourself. You'll be very welcome.
Giving Time or Money
As a church, we want to grow in our love for God and our love for others. An important way of expressing that is through giving. As a church, we rely on people giving time and money. Some are able to give more of one than the other. Both are vital. You can find out more about how to give and how we use what we're given here.
Growth Groups are:
A central part of our church.
Made up of 6-15 people.
All different, but they are all seeking to grow together –closer to God (through prayer, exploring the Bible etc), closer to one another (having fun, being friends, eating meals, sharing problems etc) and closer to others (praying for the community, organising events, inviting friends).
Most meet fortnightly in people’s homes.
If you’re interested in joining a growth group, please contact Toby or via the church office. We can then suggest a group that you could try and introduce you to the group leader.
You can find a more detailed explanation of Growth Groups here...
We believe prayer is essential to our life as a church. Prayer is our communication with God. It involves listening, talking, and expressing ourselves to God in different ways. Any of us can pray at any time - whether on our own or with others.
As a church, we gather to pray as part of our Sunday & midweek services, as well as in our Growth Groups. We also meet weekly at 6pm on Sundays in the church building to pray together for an hour. We pray for one another, our church, our community and the world.
Reading the Bible
Reading the Bible regularly is an important way to grow in Christian faith, but it can seem a bit daunting. It's good to do it together at our Sunday services and in Growth Groups, but it's also a good habit to get into on our own. You can start by just taking a few minutes each day. You’ll develop your own pattern, but here’s a suggestion:
1. Ask God to speak to you - and keep listening out for what he's saying. 2. Read a Bible passage (suggestions on finding a Bible in the guide below) 3. Read some notes on the passage (suggestions in the guide) 4. Pray – One simple pattern is Thank you, Sorry, Please.
Reduce interruptions by choosing a good time and place and turning off phone alerts.
It can be helpful to jot down thoughts, ideas or what you think God is saying as a journal.
Don’t beat yourself up with guilt if you miss a day - just pick up where you left off next time. It’s better to do something than nothing, and a great way to get to know God better.
We have written a short guide to help you get going - or to try something new...
