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. However, our church is now open again every day for private, individual prayer. 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 email@example.com
Opportunities for prayer and worship
Our church continues to be open every day for individual private prayer. We hope it provides an oasis of calm for all who need this, especially for those under strain at home and with little peace in their households. Please note this is for individual private prayer only and we ask you to practise good handwashing before and after your visit, to use the sanitising products available, to observe social distancing with those outside of your household or bubble and to follow the guidance/notices displayed in church to keep us all as safe as possible.
We are also now able to offer a service in church every Sunday at 10am. However, in keeping with official guidance our numbers are limited so we ask you to register in advance with Margaret Goodchild: tel 01483 890773; firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
“I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die."
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
