Christ Church is a lively, growing Christian community that is seeking to live out Jesus calling, in the power of the Spirit, here in Ware and beyond.

People of all ages and stages are welcome and there is something for everyone from seniors to babies and all ages in-between. Each person has something to bring that will add colour and creativity to the church family and it is our desire that everyone feels welcomed and accepted and finds a place of belonging and fulfilment.

Jesus said ‘come follow me’ and as a church we continually seek to hear Jesus voice so that we are Jesus Led. Jesus said ‘I have come that you might have life and have it to the full’ and as a church of ordinary people we want to be Spirit Empowered that we might be His people, in His strength. Jesus said ‘as the father sent me so I am sending you’, we have found God’s love and care and have experienced God’s grace in all that Jesus has done for us and therefore we want to share that Grace with everyone, meaning that we are becoming a ‘Grace Based’ church in all we are and do.

As a church, our Identity is as a people belonging to God: 1 Peter 2:9. and we are called (our mission) to: Love God and others: Matt 22:37, to be disciples who make disciples: Matt 28:19 and to be a people who pray and proclaim God’s Kingdom: Matthew 6:10, Acts 28:31

We aim to be an authentic Acts 2:42-47 church in today’s world and live out our values of:

  • Worship centred
  • Mission shaped
  • Grace Based
  • Word rooted
  • Spirit empowered
  • Community Transforming
  • Prayer dependent

Sunday is a time when we come together for worship and teaching for adults, young people and children alike with each group having their own time together. Our worship reflects different styles from a more traditional 9.15, to our new contemporary evening worship. As a church we place a high value on worship, the ministry of the Word and Spirit, friendship and reaching out with the love of Jesus.

We have a network of Life Groups, which are relationally based. These groups enable us to connect far deeper than just on a Sunday. We meet to share our lives and Christian experience through worship, learning from the scriptures and prayer, as well as enjoying lots of fun and food together! We seek to be outward looking with groups having their own particular interests and focus.

There are many more things on offer, whether you are right at the start of you Christian journey, with many questions you want answers to, or well established in your Christian faith. I hope you enjoy looking around this website and reading about all the different parts that make up Christ Church, Ware. The best thing though is to come and meet us in person and we’d love to give you a warm welcome.

God bless
John Hookway, Vicar
