WE LOVE TO WELCOME NEW PEOPLE TO CHRISTCHURCH
Why not drop us a line and let us know that you're coming along, or ask any questions that you have.
We love welcoming new people to ChristChurch, whether you are just visiting us on a Sunday or are thinking about making ChristChurch your home.
We hope you will find a warm welcome as you arrive. Ours is a generous-spirited, informal, and active church at the heart of Banstead. We seek to be a Bible-centred, prayerful and Jesus-loving family with a big heart for those who aren’t yet part of us. We believe that the crucified and risen Jesus has good news for everyone and our goal is that all come to see the greatness and grace of God in him. We’re all about Jesus.
ChristChurch is a place for those of all ages and stages, cultures and nationalities, tastes and personalities. We meet on Sundays and in various groups and activities during the week. We have many groups for children and young people but also for men and women of all ages. We meet to help one another live the life Jesus promised, life to the full, and to prepare for the day when we will all meet him at his return. We aren’t intense, try to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously, but we are serious about following Jesus. Our mission is to make disciples of him as we ‘go’, ‘win’, and ‘grow’ together.
Those who have questions or who are investigating the Christian faith are especially welcome and we aim to make our services accessible and offer friendship as well as occasional events and courses for those who wish to investigate the claims of Christ.
We welcome any questions or comments you may have and we hope to meet you soon.

Most people visit us for the first time on a Sunday morning.
There are two morning services, starting at 9.15am and 11.15am. On your first visit, if you are coming to the 9.15 service, it’s probably best to turn up just after 9.00. (This will give you plenty of time to find your way in without feeling rushed!) If you are driving, you’ll be glad to know that there’s some free parking behind our building (turning by Dignity Funerals); otherwise on the High Street or side roads (no restrictions on a Sunday).
If you plan to come to the 11.15am service, you are welcome to join us at 10.45am for tea or coffee before the start of this service. This is also served after the 11:15 service, so do stay around and get to know us.
Whichever service you choose, you’ll be greeted on the door by our welcome team who will give you some information about the church and will help you to settle in.
Both services offer groups for children and young people. The children stay in the main service for the first 20 minutes or so, and then head out to their groups. Please don’t feel uncomfortable if the younger ones are a bit boisterous – we know what children are like(!). There is a well equipped creche in the Upper Room supervised by DBS checked staff.
We are an informal church and accept people as they are. People tend to wear smart casual but there is no need to dress up to try and be someone that you’re not. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit nerve-racking. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at ChristChurch Banstead:
We are a Christian church and believe that everyone can come to know God personally. We believe this is possible because of Jesus (God the Son) who invites us to follow Him.
If you are interested in exploring the Christian faith then please come along on a Sunday or contact us to ask about how you can do just that.
Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives pleasing to Him. We’re not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we want to make a positive difference in everything we do. To help encourage us we have many activities for all ages during the week. Visit the midweek section of our website using the main menu to find out more.
Please use the map opposite to locate us. If you are driving, you will be glad to know that there’s some free parking in front of our building and also a larger carpark at the rear (entrance adjacent to the church by Dignity Funerals); otherwise on the High Street or side roads (no restrictions on a Sunday).
