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 public worship, social gatherings or business meetings.  Although our church building is also presently closed we continue to be a caring, praying, worshipping community. Resources for your prayers can be found on this website and we will expand and vary these over the coming weeks; 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

Bells to ring out on Easter Day!

On Easter morning (this Sunday), Christ Church bells will be rung at 10am and you are all invited to step outside your front door or into your garden or to sit by an open window and sing!  Further details and song words will be posted here later this week.


Opportunities for prayer and worship

Public worship has been suspended until further notice because of  Coronavirus and we have been asked to keep our church building closed. 

However, we continue to be a praying, worshipping community during the remainder of Lent and in anticipation of Easter. Please see our prayers, readings and reflection for Palm Sunday here.

Jesus said:

“And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
