About Us

Christ Church is situated on the A56, 2 miles north of Bury town centre, in the village of Walmersley. There is a lychgate and graveyard and a clock tower. Around the corner on School Lane there is plentiful parking. Here too is the former primary school, now a well-used church hall. Together with St John with St Mark's Church (one mile south) we form the United Benefice of Walmersley Road aka The Church of England on Walmersley Road.

Our clergy team in the Benefice consists of Vicar, and several retired priests. There are three Readers and one Authorised Lay Minister. The regular organist would welcome all voices in the robed choir.

At 9 am each unday a Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion service is said in the chapel.  The main service is at 10.30 am and uses Common Worship in a variety of Eucharistic and non-Eucharistic services. Four times a year the two congregations hold a united service, at alternate churches. Three or four times each year Cafe Church is held in the Hall. Every month at 7 pm, alternating between the Halls at Christ Church and St John with St Mark, is a relaxed Praise and Prayer. 

We welcome everyone. Do, please, check out our website for further information.
