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.
Our Church is open every day for private, individual prayer and for worship on Sunday Morning 8am & 10am (see below for 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.
whose steadfast love never ceases and whose mercies never come to an end: grant us the grace to trust you and to receive the gifts of your love, new every morning, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Church of England)

It is with deep sadness that I have to tell that our dear friend, Jonathan Jenner, died on Friday 10th February 2023 in the Royal Surrey County Hospital. Most of you will have been aware that the cancer that robbed him of a kidney nine and a half years ago returned last summer and proved both aggressive and fast-moving.
Jonathan faithfully served our church and village throughout his life, including as a choir member, church warden, school governor, school trustee, parish councillor and a reliable and effective member on many village committees and working groups. He has been a supportive and loyal neighbour to many and a friend in good times and bad to us all.
Funeral of Jonathan Jenner
We will gather to give thanks for Jonathan’s life, to commend him to God’s loving care and to support one another in our grief on Monday 27th March 1pm at Christ Church.
We send our love, with our prayers, to his family.
