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.

Christ Church Film Club
Thursday 26th April 8pm
We had problems screening this last time, which seems appropriate somehow, so in the true spirit of Groundhog Day, here we go again
Who would have thought it’s 25 years since Groundhog Day came out. It seems just yesterday…
The Christ Church Film Club invite you to relive the first time you saw this classic film about love and redemption, hope and change.
If we all had the same day, over and over again, what couldn’t we do with it?
Christ Church Film Club is a big screen experience, with back projection and surround sound. The seats are comfy, the company is congenial, and there is popcorn and the chance to chat about what you have seen. Cinema with meaning for the Isle of Dogs.
