We are a church that exists to know Christ better, and to make Christ better known. We love Guildford and the people of Guildford and beyond.
Some of the people you might meet on a Sunday
Rev Nick Williams
Nick has been Vicar at Christ Church for just over 10 years. He is passionate about helping people discover who Jesus is and the difference He makes to their lives. He is married to Anna and they have three kids. He enjoys playing hockey for Guildford Hockey Club, singing along to musicals, good food and watching his kids’ various sporting activities (aka dad’s taxi).. Nick is currently Area Dean for Guildford Deanery, helping support churches in this part of the diocese.
Joel is our curate, he believes Jesus is the greatest news the world has ever heard, and loves helping people discover who he is. Joel is married to Taryn, a proud South African, which is great, until England play South Africa at rugby! He enjoys watching rugby (sadly his playing days are behind him), running very slowly, and reading, although with two young children running and reading are more aspirational than reality.
Ben splits his time between working for us as our Worship Pastor, and the rest of his week is the co-ordinator for Guildford Street Angels. He and his family though are moving to the Isle of Man in the New Year so we will be looking for a new Worship Pastor – if this is you please do get in touch!
What we believe
We recognise the importance of the Bible in order to grow in our faith so we are committed to teaching the Bible and applying it to our lives.
We believe that prayer is foundational to everything we do, so we continue to encourage both individual and gathered prayer.
We know that we cannot hope to live a full life as an authentic follower of Jesus without help from the Holy Spirit.
We value the ministry of each and every person, and seek to use the gifts God has given us in His service both within the church and wherever we find ourselves.
We seek to be outward looking and serve the local community by caring for others, and helping people encounter Jesus.
