Christ Church is part of the Team Ministry of Great Chesham. Our church is located in the Waterside district of Chesham, overlooking the River Chess. We have a growing congregation of all ages with Sunday worship centred around Family Communion. We have an expanding Sunday School for under-12s which is supported by all members of the church. Our midweek toddlers group is thriving and we have strong links with the local school. We strive to reach out to the youth in our district and run a weekly Youth Group.
