Welcome to Christ Church, Ivegill.

 

The Parish was formed in 1868 when Christ Church was built at the sole cost of the Reverend Arthur Emilius Hulton who came from a weathly Southampton family. The church was designed by RJ Withers and comprises Nave, Chancel, South Porch and Vestry. The East and West windows are by O'Connor of London and depict The Last Supper and the four Evangelists and four major Prophets. Other windows showing floral and fruit designs are by Powell of Whitechapel. 

 

The oak reredos has three elaborately carved panels along with six illuminated metal panels depicting the Ten Commandments. These latter are the work of Creighton & Scott of Carlisle.

 

An attractive Millennium Tapestry worked by parishioners and others in 2000 shows a variety of parish scenes. 

 

At the foot of the churchyard is a Peace Garden, opened by the Bishop of Carlisle in 2011, which includes an obelisk surmounted by a dove symbol adapted into a sun-dial. The sculptor was B Cowper of Catterlen.
