Fellaship is a men's group run by the men of Christ Church that focuses on enjoying activities and exploring topical and relevant issues that connect with men's lives today. It aims to build friendship and faith in a relaxed and informal atmosphere of social activities and get-togethers.
One of the great strengths of fellaship is its diversity of membership, with its common foundation of men experiencing similarly demanding lifestyles. It meets for breakfast on a Saturday morning on alternate months, with a varied programme of social events and meetings. We also have a monthly Bible Study and Discussion Group. Over the last few months we have enjoyed curries, quizzes and speakers on a wide variety of topics. Anyone wanting to get involved in fellaship or just wanting to keep up with what's going on, should contact email@example.com or Alan Dye via the Church Office.
