The Parish of Christchurch serves the communities of Hardwick, Ragworth, Sheraton Park, Salters Lane and Primrose Hill and has two churches, St John's, Durham Road and St Chad's, on Ragpath Lane, Roseworth.
In addition, we have strong links with our Church of England Primary School, St John's on St Johns Way, Ragworth and we are part of an ecumenical project named "Hope", a Faith in Our Community project on Hardwick.
In our worship and in our daily lives we seek to live out Jesus' command "to love God and to love our neighbour"
