Hello and Welcome

FrTom

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 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 four different groups offering children’s work during the week. The focal point of our life together is the Parish Mass at 11am on Sunday.

December highlights

 

advent

The Advent season is here, and we want to share with us in celebrating the birth of the Saviour and to a look in anticipation to his Glorious return.

We begin our celebrations by observing the Advent Selah: from Dec 1 – 24th at midday. 

This is a time to come into church, light a candle, say a prayer, take a moment to pause from the busyness and focus on God.

Even if you can’t come to change do take a a minute at midday to stop and be still before God wherever you are.
