Christ Church, Totland Bay – Open For Prayer, Worship and Community
Christ Church Main Building
All are welcome to join us for Sunday and mid-week worship but the church building is also available during the week for visitors who would like somewhere really peaceful to pray, to sit quietly, or perhaps rest on their journey to Alum Bay.
For more information about the Church Building see The Story of Christ Church.
Christ Church Prayer Room
You are welcome to make use of the Christ Church Prayer Room established in the Church’s Upper Room for personal prayer. As you enter the church follow the stairs from the entrance porch to the Upper Room where you can pray in an area of peace and comfort.
At present the room is set out with various aids to prayer on the theme of The Trinity.
