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. By giving our time and money we are able to make a big difference in our church, our community and our world. Our giving is a response to God's love for us and from a desire to share that love with our neighbours.
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.
Giving your time can make a big impact – whether it’s a few days every week, or a few hours each month. There’s lots to get involved in! Your help will be really appreciated and joining a team can be a great way to get to know people too. If you would like to give more of your time, then please have a chat with a leader in the church or contact the church office. (Note: For safety, regular work with young people/children/vulnerable adults will be subject to safeguarding DBS checks)
Giving your money will also make a big difference. There are different ways you can give. To find out more about how you can give, how we spend our money, and more, please have a click on the link below and have a look through our 'Giving for Growth' leaflet. If you are able to give regularly and/or Gift Aid, then these both help us plan more effectively for the future. All gifts are gratefully received. Thank you.
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 pray for one another, our church, our community and the world. We also meet monthly to pray together in different ways for an hour at Prayer & Praise. Check out our Newsletter on our home page for the next dates.
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. 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
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 produced a short guide to help you get going - or to try something new...

Seeking to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength... and to love our neighbours as ourselves."
