Welcome to the Christ Church Blog page
For those unfamiliar with the term – A BLOG – is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.
Out of adversity come new challenges and new opportunities. But in the face of all that is happening the one constant is the One who came to sacrifice Himself for us. Who lived and walked among His people and who loves us all.

The Diocese of Chelmsford has started the process of looking for a new Bishop to replace +Stephen, who in July will become Archbishop of York. For information about the process visit the website of the diocese or this link – https://www.chelmsford.anglican.org/our-next-bishop
The process at present is with the Diocesan Vacancy in See Committee, their first job is to produce a Diocesan Statement of Needs on behalf of the diocese. The purpose of the Statement of Needs is to inform the Crown Nominations Commission and potential candidates about the diocese and the role of the Bishop of Chelmsford here in Essex and East London. It describes the diocese including the church and the communities we serve. The Statement of Needs also talks about the strengths of the church in the diocese, the challenges we face and the priorities for the next bishop. This document is one of the pieces of information that will be used by the Crown Nominations Commission to finalise the role profile and person specification for the next bishop.
The Revd Canon Louise Williams is a member of that group and probably known to many of us, please pray for her and our Bishop The Rt Revd Dr John Perumbalath (Bishop of Bradwell).
