Welcome to Shamley Green and to our parish church Christ Church
Christ Church has been inviting everyone in this parish 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. During the current health crisis, we are looking after one another by following Church of England guidelines not to meet for social gatherings or business meetings.
Our church remains open every day for private, individual prayer, from 6th December, our 10am Sunday public worship in church will resume.  We also continue to be a praying, worshipping community 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 info@shamleygreen.net

   Jesus said:

 I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” 
Lord Jesus Christ, 
In these dark and difficult days we turn our hearts to you.
In ages past you have delivered our nation from disaster;
do it again we pray. 
Give Wisdom beyond human wisdom to our leaders.
Give strength beyond human strength to the NHS and all our frontline workers.
Give comfort beyond human comfort to children and the elderly and all who grieve.
Lord, Jesus Christ, in these dark and difficult days,
turn your face towards us, have mercy upon us,
and heal our land we pray.  Amen.
(Prayer for the Nation booklet)

 Wintershall Winter Walks
The Nativity Winter Walk will take place over the beautiful Wintershall Estate from 18 – 21 December 2020. There will be no Nativity Play this year. They are very excited to invite you to a safe, interactive event so you and your family can experience the ‘real’ Christmas story, while walking through the undulating fields and woodland of Wintershall meeting the Nativity characters and animals along the way – Shepherds watching their sheep, the Angel, Mary & Joseph with the donkey, The Innkeeper, the Kings and much more.
