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 extendedfamilies 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 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.
“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)
