We are currently running online Alpha Courses.

People who attend the course still see the Alpha videos as normal and are able to discuss the material in groups, just as before. The only difference is that it’s all from the comfort of their home!

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Jesus calls us to care for and love each other. Even though we can’t do that face to face for the time being, we want to support you in any way we can during this time. If you are self isolating, please be in contact with Matthew in the office (office@christchurchsouthport.org.uk or 01704 531756) so that we can be in contact with you and see if we can help you in any way. If you are feeling isolated we would encourage you to phone each other and have regular conversations to make each other laugh and give support. So that we can all do that effectively, we would encourage you to make your phone number visible in ChurchSuite, so we can phone each other.
