How do I find the church?
Christ Church Chislehurst is located in the heart of Chislehurst close to Chislehurst railway station and the Chislehurst Caves. For directions to the church, click here.
Is there plenty of parking?
There's parking in front of the church (including two disabled bays), and another small car park downhill in Porrington Close. Parking in the road is possible, though at very busy services you may have a bit of a walk as we need to leave plenty of space either side of neighbours' drives.
Is there disabled access to the Church?
All areas in the Church Centre can be reached by those with special access needs: there are ramps, a lift and toilets either end of the Centre with wide doors (these toilets also have baby change facilities). There's also a hearing loop as part of our sound system.
What should I wear?
When you come to Christ Church, we want you to feel comfortable and at ease.
You will see adults and children wearing everything from jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties so please don't feel you need to "dress up"; just come as you are.
What happens when I arrive?
When you arrive you will be welcomed by one of our members.
The layout of the church makes it easy to get around and there are always plenty of people who will be happy to help you find your way. Don't be afraid to ask; it's a great way to meet people.
There are no reserved seats so feel free to sit wherever you feel most comfortable.
