'Celebrating, encouraging, proclaiming and supporting faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ our Lord.'

Christ Church is the parish church for Ainsworth village and the surrounding area, including a large part of Bradley Fold. We are a friendly village church alive with the love of Jesus.  

Jesus said, "... anyone who comes to me I will never drive away." (John 6:37) Jesus welcomes all who come to him, no matter who they are or what they have done.  

In this spirit, everyone who comes to Christ Church is assured of a warm welcome.
