Welcome! I am Fr. Tom Pyke and I am the Vicar of Church of England Parish of the Isle of Dogs, London. Our church, Christ Church, is on Manchester Road at the southern tip of the peninsula (we call it ‘the Island’). The congregation comes from many nationalities, traditions and denominations and reflects the diversity of the Island’s changing population – personally, I have worked in the Parish since November 2006. Before that I was vicar and industrial chaplain in Birmingham. I combine my work in the parish with work as a Chaplain in the Royal Naval Reserve.
Christ Church belongs to the catholic tradition of the Church of England. Our worship is beautiful, using colour, music, teaching, drama and poetry. At the same time it is relaxed and welcoming. We have different groups offering children’s work during the week. The focal point of our life together is the Parish Mass at 11am on Sunday.
I have written a short guide to the events and the church services of Holy Week. Please download the pdf here
