Mark Brafield's November organ recital is on YouTube: Farewell to the Organ. The organ is now available for relocation (see IBO Redundant Organs Register ref. 655).

Our mission: to worship God and share the good news of God's love for all through the person and teaching of Jesus Christ. To achieve this we will nurture our people, glorify God through our worship, love and serve others in the community and seek to bring people into relationships with Christ.

We share a Minister with Leatherhead Methodist Church (LMC), the Revd Jan Hofmeyr who previously served with the Methodist Church in South Africa. Our shared Youth and Children's Worker is Nic Joyce (known as Joycey), joycey.lmcyouth(at)gmail.com.

Both churches belong to a Joint Pastorate of four churches, with Cobham United Church, and Effingham Methodist Church, and the joint Minister of these two churches is the Revd Kim Plumpton (URC). Click here to see the pastorate newsletter, "the Link".

Leatherhead Parish Church, LMC and Christ Church have formed special links as the three Leatherhead Uniting Churches, part of the wider group of Churches Together in Leatherhead.

Our future: On 16th February 2020, Church Meeting decided to close the Epsom Road premises on 4th January 2021 because they are now too large for the current reduced numbers. Though sad to move from their well-loved church and its large grounds, the congregation look forward to worshipping elsewhere in 2021. The Church Meeting also regret having had to say goodbye to all the community groups which have made use of the facilities over many years.
