Welcome to Christ Church, Longford!

‘To build Christ’s Church and take God’s word to the people’


Christianity Explored course:

May I introduce myself. My name is Revd James ‘Dub’ Gannon and I am the Rector of Christ Church (the big church in the centre of Longford). I started in February and not long after that we all found ourselves in new uncharted territory due to COVID.

We are of course in a new norm. Perhaps at this time it may have caused you to reassess and ask the question, “One life. What is it all about?”

I am going to run a course called Christianity Explored (CE) which will answer this question. The CE course is an informal and relaxed seven-week course. It is for anyone who wants to think about the meaning of life. It is completely free.

You don’t need to know anything about the Bible, and you won’t be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like or you can just sit and listen. CE is a place for you to

explore what life is all about. It might just be the best news you have ever heard. If you would like to get a taster of what the course is about you can check it out on the following website:


The course will run over seven weeks on Tuesday evenings. The course will kick off on Tuesday 13th October at the Christ Church parish hall, 2a William Street, Longford @ 7.30pm. I look forward to seeing you there. There will be a supper served at the end.
