About Us

"Christ Church" is a Local Ecumenical Partnership in which the partners are the Anglican Parish Church of Waltham Cross, part of the Cheshunt Team Ministry formed in 2008, and the Methodist Church of Cheshunt and Waltham Cross, part of the Herts & Essex Border Ecumenical Area - HAEBEA. Several members of the congregation hold both Anglican and Methodist Membership.

The Church was built as a daughter Church to St. Mary's Cheshunt in 1833. Originally it was called "Trinity Chapel" and in 1855 it became a separate parish called "Holy Trinity Church". The church is a Grade II listed building. In 1974 a Sharing Agreement was entered into with the Methodist Church and the building was renamed "Christ Church".

The Anglican Congregation are part of the Cheshunt Deanery within the Diocese of St Albans. We are "Modern Catholic" in our Liturgy and Tradition.

The Methodist Minister at Christ Church is the Superintendent Minister for HAEBEA and also has pastoral charge at Hoddesdon, Hertford, North Weald and Watton-at-Stone Methodist Churches who are within the Beds, Essex and Herts (BEH) Methodist District.
