Looters – them or us?

From so many perspectives the rioting that took place in England during this summer raises questions: Was it connected with racial discrimination? Was it because of a marginalised underclass who had no fear and no hope? Was it nothing much really, but the media whipped it up to a story which became self-sustaining?

Churches are not about dead buildings but about people who are very much alive and want to serve Christ and their neighbours. We want Christ Church to be a true church of Christ. You are most welcome to join us at any of our meetings.
