Christ the King

WELCOME to the Church of Christ the King Chingford, in Waltham Forest. Your virtual visit is most welcome. Our parish is a vibrant community, with a programme of worship and weekly activities. We serve parts of Walthamstow and Chingford, publishing a weekly Newsletter. Our Parish Priest is the Very Reverend David Waller (Ord).

The Ordinariate’s free magazine called The Portal is published on the first day of each month. You can also listen to a different podcast each week on Saturdays at 6pm.

Please see our new page on leaving a gift to Christ the King Church in your will.

Coffee Morning Sunday 10th March 2024

Our next coffee morning falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent called Laetare or ‘Rejoice’ Sunday when the priest normally wears pink instead of purple vestments. It is also known as ‘Mothering Sunday.’ Please spare a thought for the orphans at the orphanage run by the Oblates of the Assumption in Congo who are without their own mothers to care for them. At the same time we give thanks to the Oblates who work tirelessly to bring each of them a mother’s love. Please join us to rejoice this special and unconditional love with refreshments. You will be helping to support these blessed children at the same time. Thank you.

You are invited to our monthly coffee morning on Sunday 10th March 2024 after the 9am and 11am Masses in the Church Hall. Everyone is assured of a very warm welcome. Proceeds go to the Oblates of the Assumption Orphanage in Congo. You can gift aid your donation if you are in the scheme or would like to join – envelopes and forms will be available.

Please see the brochure about the Oblates of the Assumption Orphanage in Congo or visit the page. And watch the video of the orphanage on the YouTube channel for Christ the King

Please say the Act of Spiritual Communion after the priest has received Holy Communion. “My Jesus, I believe that You Are truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, And I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot, at this moment receive you Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as being already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.”

Mass Offerings

All intentions will be said by Fr David or another priest who may be covering on his behalf, at the public celebration of Mass. If you would like to offer a Mass please contact the Parish Office.
