Christ Church, Derry Hill

Welcome to Christ Church, Derry Hill, which is part of the Marden Vale Team Ministry.

Christ Church is a light and airy Victorian church built in 1840. It is in excellent condition and easy to maintain and stands in the heart of the village between the vicarage, the primary school and the village hall. The church is open every day and the handsome spire may be lit at night in memory of a loved one, or indeed for happier occasions such as baptisms, wedding anniversaries, etc. - it can be seen from many miles away.  The core congregation is very loyal and the church is filled to capacity at all the major Christian festivals. The excellent Church of England Primary School has close links with Christ Church.

Services in the Marden Vale churches resume from Sunday 18th April.  

Please go to 'Services and Events' and 'News and notices' on the left hand side of this page for details of future services.
