Hello and Welcome









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 loop in the Thames (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.

We welcome people who want to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith.

hroughout the current period of COVID-19 our services are held online as Zoom meetings and some will be recorded for you to listen back. Our next Meeting is on Sunday 5th July (4th Sunday after Trinity).
