Christ Church Brixton Road
Located just north of Brixton, this small parish has one of the highest levels of deprivation in South London, and indeed in the country.
We seek to respond to this by continuing some longstanding projects - 'The Charity Shop' which sells clothing and other donated items at low prices, and a 'Food Cupboard', a food bank open onces a week to anyone who whishes to drop in, people do not have to be referred. Both these projects have been running for well over 20 years. Together they mean that the church can be open every week day,and that we make contact with, and get to know, many people would not otherwise make contact with the church. We hope to expand the work of the Charity Shop in some exciting ways in the months ahead.
We are linked to Christ Church Primary SW9, a one form entry Primary School.
The congregation is very mixed, in every way, and we are affiliated to Inclusive Church. We are looking for new ways to both reflect God's love in the community and to grow the church.
This is all demanding and we are aware that we are sustained by Worship, Prayer, and the Joyful celebration of the presence of God.
