Our Building

The building features various spectacular stained glass windows from late 19th century origin.

The church was erected between 1850 and 1852 to designs by the architect Samuel Daukes in the Early English Gothic revival style.

Music and Worship

An active group of bell ringers ring the bells every week, twice on Sundays at 10.15-11am and 5.30-6.30pm and on one weekday evening, as well as for special occasions, weddings and the like. The joy of handling a heavy church bell and the wonderful sound of a properly orchestrated bell ringing session is something that one can only really experience by doing.

Everyone is welcome to join our group of active bell ringers and expert tuition is available to learn the ropes of the wonderful and traditional art of bell ringing. Please refer to the Master of the Tower to get in touch with our bell ringing team. It takes around 8 to 10 one-hour lessons to learn the basic skill of handling a bell.

Christ Church bells are noted for their very mellow tone, and have rung out to celebrate many a civic and church occasion whether local or national. They were also featured in a BBC4 documentary in 2009, Gladstone & Disraeli – Clash of the Titans.

The bells and tower are affiliated to the Middlesex County Association and London Diocesan Guild of Ringers.

A professional organist plays during most services.

Evening Prayer is said on Sundays - a quiet and reflective service from the Book of Common Prayer.

Christ Church Choir is an octet of professional singers which sings most Sunday mornings.

Groups, Courses and Activities

Children feature prominently in the church’s life and regularly take part in services.

This is a tradition dating at least from the 1960s when the vicar, David Jarvis, held extremely popular services run by children for children.

During most Sunday services, an infant crèche is available at 11 a.m. for 1 hour. This is a fun activity group for our younger children to partake in on Sunday mornings.

For the older children, Sunday School is offered on a regular basis, where children are encouraged to actively consider questions and answers around the Christian faith.
