Welcome to Shamley Green and to our parish church Christ Church
Christ Church has been inviting people to be part of our Christian family since 1864. And like all extended families we are made up of individuals from every generation, background, outlook and experience. We warmly welcome you to join us, be it on a regular basis or for a one-off visit or special occasion.
During the current health crisis, we are looking after one another by following Church of England guidelines not to meet for social gathering or business meetings. However, our Church is open every day for private, individual prayer and for limited numbers at our Sunday Morning 10am Service (below for details). We also continue to be a praying and worshipping online and new resources can be found each week on this website: please see below for further details,
As part of our mission to serve the wider community in Shamley Green and Rowly we also hope you will find the links and information about local organisations, clubs and other groups helpful. If you have made the parish your home or if you work here or if you are visiting we hope you will make the most of what our friendly and caring community has to offer.
If you are new to our parish or have a particular enquiry, please contact us at email@example.com
Opportunities for prayer and worship
Sundays 10am Holy Communion in church
You do not need to register in advance (although we may request this for special services) but in keeping with official guidance our numbers are limited so we ask you to understand if there is not enough space on the day. So far this has not been a problem so do come and join us!
We recognise that some people, for whatever reason, cannot join us for public worship but you continue to be a cherished part of our praying, worshipping community. We offer the following resources for all of us to use in our own homes.
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Come to us, Lord our God: Stretch out your arm to save, strengthen our hands to love, for the sake of the world that is your own. Amen.
(Prayer for the Nation booklet)
