Christ Church Football Club was established in 2022

We are an 11-a-side men’s football team who play for the love of football to the glory of God, with power, passion and purpose.

How the journey began

Christ Church FC were formed in June 2022, taking to the field for the first time in a charity game against a side called Team Kickabout who were raising money for mental health.

It was a dreadful start for the newly-formed CCFC side who fell behind within the first minute, however, they dusted themselves off and bounced back in style, winning their first encounter 9-3.

A resounding score line that became the spring board for so much more.

It was an impressive display in their first competition and now they move on, using this first season as a springboard for bigger things next season. The well-oiled CCFC machine is purring nicely…a strong, newly established team that will only get stronger.


Saturday 1st April 2023 - CHRIST CHURCH FC reveals its first football kit

Designed by Damian (Chairman), Dean (Manager) and Jonny (Assistant Manager), our bespoke kit funded by the Church Council is a real winner! Bright, bold, and classy! We used Appin Sports to manufacture the kit. They were brilliant to work with ensuring the colours were spot on. We used the colours of the Christ Church Thornton logo for the stripes down the edge of the kit.
