Christ Church, Lancaster

Welcome to Christ Church, Lancaster - a vibrant, inclusive worshipping community.  We are a church family committed to sharing God's love and showing our faith in action in our parish and in the wider community.  An example of this commitment is the winter Night Shelter for homeless people which we have run since 1991 as the only non-referral overnight shelter in the North-West.  We are also delighted to be an Eco-Church, and a member of the Inclusive Church network, united around the shared vision of "a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate".   

Our church has reopened for public worship, with covid-precautions in place in the building and in the Hall. We warmly invite you to join any of our services, whether in person or online. Please check out our website ( and read or download the weekly e-newsletter and other prayer resources.  If you'd like to receive regular information about us, please email [email protected].
