Music and the Arts


St Augustine said : “To sing is to pray twice.”

Music at Christ Church is flourishing and forms a vital part of our worship, under our  Director of Music, Norman Rose. The role of music in enhancing and illustrating our liturgy continues to improve and expand. Mr Rose is also a Reader in the Church of England (a lay-preacher) and has a wealth of experience in the creation and direction of music in churches of the catholic tradition (like our own).

Our Parish Choir is recruiting new members. Any prospective singers are warmly invited to contact the church office for more information.

Christ Church hosts one of the largest and best-loved choral societies in the area: the London Docklands Singers, led by Andrew Campling.

Christ Church is often used as a setting for film projects created by students from Greenwich University. Professional TV companies occasionally use the church for screen tests. Christ Church Vicarage was the setting for scenes from the documentary Churchill and Me.

The church owns a Draper 90 x 120 inch Draper collapsible screen for back projection, making it possible to host community cinema in the church. The church often hosts film nights.
