Meet the Minister
"When I was 15 I went to church and told the minister, 'I'm just here to keep my Mum happy, I'm not going to become a Christian!' But when I opened the Bible and read about Jesus, what he said about my life and our world made perfect sense."
Dimitri Alldridge and his family joined the church in November 2016. He trained at Bible College in America and worked in various roles in different churches for 10 years before coming to Christ Church. He's married to Gay-Lynn and they have two children, Addison and Theo. In his spare time he enjoys dreaming of mountains and drinking tea.
What we believe
We are an Anglican Church, committed to the core doctrines of historic Anglicanism, as expressed in the creeds, the 39 articles, and the Book of Common Prayer.
We believe that we come to Jesus Christ by faith alone, trusting in Christ alone, and that the Bible is our sole authority for understanding what it means to believe in Jesus Christ. We believe in Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God in three persons.
What we do
At Christ Church we seek to Know Christ and Make Christ Known. This has been our mission statement since our foundation in October 2002, and continues to be at the heart of all we do.
We talk about seeking to grow in three ways:
- to grow deeper in our knowledge of Christ
- to grow wider in reaching more people for Christ
- to grow higher in pursuing Christ-like character together
We have a number of mission partners who we support as a church; their work reaches right across the globe. Some are short-term workers choosing to serve for a year or two, whilst others have committed many years to serving God in different ways and different places.
