About Us

Built in 1857 as a chapel to the Boys' Grammar School and Workhouse, Christ Church is a beautiful example of the Arts and Crafts movement. The stained glass by Shrigley and Hunt is particularly noteworthy. 

Now serving a parish of 15000 the congregation is younger than the average, lively and outward looking. Worship is centred on the Eucharist, where all who are baptised are welcome to receive communion. We are a member of the Inclusive Church network, believing that no-one should be discriminated against for any reason, and following Jesus' example of welcoming everyone, including those marginalised by society.  Our Eco-Group has helped us achieve a Silver Award from Arocha, enabling us to be an Eco-Church. 

Our Children's Church meet during  term time within the 1030 Sunday service, and we look forward to many other opportunities for children, young adults and adults to meet together. Social activities range from Scouts and Guides to a choir to a book group! 

We enjoy baptising a large number of children and adults every year, and prospective brides and grooms are always made very welcome. The church is also available for funeral services. These can be booked with us at the church on a Sunday morning between 9 and 10 am (no appointment necessary) or please contact the Vicar, the Revd Carol Backhouse.

We worship God in the beauty of holiness and enjoy fellowship with each other. Visitors are always welcome.
