St. Christopher's was built in 1961 as a dual purpose church and community centre. Later halls were added and the original building became a full-time church. In 2000/1 as a Millennium project the front was extended, a spire and bells added, to 'make it look more like a church'.
The church has a set of 10 Tom Denny windows depicting parables, a liturgical 'East' window by Sebastian Compere and 2 new etched glass windows by Nicholas Mynher.
The 6 bells are the lightest ring of bells in a church in the world.
The church is open every day from at least 8 a.m. till 4.30 p.m.
The church is in a Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP) with the United Reformed Church and is known as 'The Church in Warden Hill'.
St. Christopher's is part of the South Cheltenham Benefice. The other churches in the group are SS P&J Leckhampton, St. Peter's Leckhampton, St. Stephen's and Emmanuel, and a close association with Cheltenham Network Church.
