Christ Church Sandown
The church is made up of people of various ages. We like to think that we are friendly and approachable and are glad to welcome visitors and newcomers.
We endeavour to be contemporary and culturally aware in our church programs. The ministry of the church stems from a belief that encountering Jesus changes us and brings purpose to our lives. As an Evangelical church we try to follow the teachings of the bible and seek to be open to the work of the Holy Spirit.
Christ Church is partnered with St Paul's, Shanklin with whom we share Rev. Mark Williams as Priest in Charge. Mark together with the other priests in the area are part of a wider informal team ministry which encompasses all 6 Anglican churches in the Sandown Bay Area.
We also have excellent links with the local Church of England school The Bay School (which includes both Primary and Secondary sites). Members of the church are on the Governing Body. Their website is The Bay CE School - Home.
