Church of England Diocese of Blackburn Lancaster Christ Church

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 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".   

Although our church and hall buildings have had to be closed for worship until present restrictions are lifted, we continue to be that worshipping and inclusive community, and warmly invite you to join any of our live-streamed services, to 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].

Christ Church, Lancaster, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops' guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO), who may be contacted on [email protected] or on 07930 979503. The Diocese of Blackburn’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA and/or the PSO. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
