Who & where?
Temporary arrangements for Christ Church Dore services.
The reordering project, Step into the Light, necessitates a move for our worship as on this poster. Why not join in each of these services and see how they feel to you? They will all be different from the previous services we have had in the church building. This is an opportunity for everyone to come together as a church family and welcome others who may not have been to church before. Feedback is always welcome for any improvements we can make.
Where can you find us? ( We look forward to editing this towards the autumn of 2024 as we will have facilities more fitting to the 21st century).

Parking - there is on street parking around the church, on Church Lane
and Vicarage Lane. We regret that there are no 'Disabled Bays' marked.
Approach - coming from Church Lane, there is an open gateway followed by the path sloping gently down to the main doors of the church building. Coming from Vicarage Lane, there is gated access followed by a sloping pathway up to the main doors of the church building.
Doors - there are double doors to access the porch, a second set of double doors once inside the porch, and further sets of double doors to access the Vestry (and 'Disabled Toilet') and main worship space. Please note, the left hand door of each pair is usually bolted shut, with the bolts top and bottom.
Toilets - there is an 'accessible' toilet which also has Baby change facilities, in the Choir Vestry, located at the rear of the building.
T-loop - is used at every service where the AV system is used, within the main building. It does not currently extend into the area where the Choir Stalls are located.
Wheelchair access - within the main worship space is limited due to the nature of Victorian Pews, and there are steps at the front to access the platform, the Choir Stalls and the Altar
Visuals - the current 10am service uses a screen and projection, the current 8.30am and 5.30pm services use books (kept in the pews). If you need the service in large print, or another format, please let us know and we will do our best to make this happen for you.
Sensory needs - if the environment or noise levels are difficult for you, please feel free to move around the worship space or head out to the inner lobby to find a quieter place
Assistance dogs - please let us know if you are coming with an assistance dog so that we can ensure a bowl of water is available!

Bell ringing is a team activity that stimulates the brain and helps keep you fit ... it also makes a glorious sound! Many consider ringing to be their contribution to church life, others do it for the pure pleasure and the company it brings. Ringers come from all walks of life and range in age from ten to those in their nineties!
