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.

Currently we are in Vacancy, our Vicar having moved to Bolton. We welcome the ministry of a retired priest, three Readers and one Authorised Lay Minister. We are grateful for several clergy and retired priests within the area who are currently leading services. The regular organist would welcome all voices in the robed choir.

At 9 am each Sunday 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.
