Our story

The vision for ChristChurch London started in the mid 1980s when God spoke to David Stroud: he was to return to London one day and be involved in planting churches. In the summer of 2003, that became a reality as David and his wife Philippa and family moved to London to plant ChristChurch London.

The first meeting was in April 2004 and by the Autumn, the team had grown to 90 and was ready to begin regular Sunday meetings.

As the church outgrew one venue, it moved to another - meeting in places as varied as a Conference Centre, a wine museum, and a west-end theatre. In July 2010, having grown to over 500 people, we moved to our current venue, The Mermaid Theatre, on the north bank of the Thames and next to Blackfriars Station, where we now hold two meetings at 11.00 and 16.00 and we continue to enjoy the numbers of new people wanting to make ChristChurch London their home.

Our Alpha course has also seen over 2000 people come through its doors over the past five years and we are excited to see what God is going to do next.

From Dreamer to Leader (Genesis 41:39-57) - Andy Tilsley

Sun Nov 02, 11.00 - 12.30 & 16.00 - 17.30

Having been thrown in a pit, sold into slavery, falsely accused and imprisoned for years, Joseph now finds himself in a position of influence, as second in charge over Egypt. But in contrast to chapter 37, this time Joseph handles his influence well. This talk looks at how God matures and prepares us.

Live Performance Night in Whitechapel

Fri Oct 24, 19.30 - 22.00

Join us for an evening of creativity and live performance. The evening will be open to all, and there will be opportunities for anyone to do a performance piece. It could be song, a bit of writing (yours or a famous piece that you love) a dance, mime or whatever. As long as it's something you love, don't worry about what it is. It'll be a really friendly environment to do something a little scary. Why not try it?

If you don't feel you have anything you want to share, just come along for a great time anyway.
