St Christopher’s, Ellistown has a small friendly congregation which welcomes all comers, with a relaxed atmosphere. There is a service of Holy Communion on three Sundays ( 2nd, 3rd and fourth Sunday) each month and Messy church on the first Sunday of the month in the afternoon at 3.00pm.

St Christopher’s is one of three churches in the parish (see links to the other two on the right of this page.) It was originally built in 1895  to serve the newly established  mining community of Ellistown. Today the church is rediscovering it’s role in the village as the distinctive red brick building is in the process of being given a new lease of life. The rector is Rev’d Olwen Woolcock. Olwen can be contacted using the information found on the ‘contact us’ tab.

Mid week events:

  •  A monthly afternoon social with games, quizzes, refreshments and singing. Local people as well as church  members are making new friends in this group.
  • Coffee Morning on Third Thursday at 10.0am after the mid week communion service. 
  • Afterschool club for ages 8-11 at 3.15pm each Thursday in term time.
  • Afterschool Club for 11+ at 4.15pm each Thursday in term time. 

 Other groups and activities as arranged.
