About Us

The parish of Christ Church is situated on the north eastern edge of Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire. The church stands on one of the highest points of the town and its spire is visible for many miles.

The parish is largely residential. Christ Church Primary School (C of E controlled) and the church share a common boundary, the church being used for school services. St Laurence School (secondary) is close by in the neighbouring parish of Holy Trinity.

There is an early Communion service on the second Sunday each month. On the first Sunday there is a Benefice Communion on 1st Sunday at St Nicholas, Winsley. In Christ Church there is a Prayer and Praise service on 2nd Sunday, Communion on 3rd Sunday and Refresh (cafe style) on 4th Sunday. A Benefice Communion service is held in one of the four churches on a fifth Sunday. There is also a morning Communion service on Wednesdays. 

The Ark Baby & Toddler cafe meets weekly on Tuesdays in term time, and Open the Book sessions take place in Christ Church Primary School. There are also Bible study house groups, Wives group, and a small group of musicians play for some services. The Mother's Union branch has now amalgamated with the Holy Trinity branch, where they now meet.

From September round to the start of the summer holidays, a soup, bread and cheese lunch is held in church from 12 noon to 2pm.

The parish is part of the Benefice of North Bradford-on-Avon and Villages, along with the parishes of St. James (South Wraxall), St. Nicholas (Winsley) and St. Peter (Monkton Farleigh).
