Where to find us:
Christ Church is a very warm and welcoming evangelical church in the village of Walshaw, Bury, Greater Manchester. We are part of the Church of England and belong to the Diocese of Manchester.
At our heart is a conviction that we can share a living relationship with God, which we have found through Jesus Christ and which we believe can develop and grow by study of the Bible.
We aim to live out this relationship by sharing the love of God and pointing to His Son Jesus starting here in Walshaw ... while we get alongside people, getting to know them, caring for them and share our story.
We have good connections in our local community - including our church primary and secondary school and the local day nursery, and we actively support local voluntary secular and Christian mission agencies including Porch Boxes food bank, Street Pastors and Christians Against Poverty. We continue to develop how we 'connect with our community'.
We also engage in national and international ministry through our support and partnership with Tearfund, the Bible Society and Musalaha: ministry of reconciliation.
We work closely with other churches of various denominations in the Bury, including through Church Together in Bury - sharing worship on a regular basis as well as ministry and mission.
Our worship is informal and relaxed. We enjoy singing hymns and praise songs as part of our worship. We have a range of services ... on Sunday mornings these include our all age family services, Holy Communion services and Children's Church, as well as Evening Prayer on the third Sunday of the month. There are also lots of toys and activities for our youngest members of the church in church which makes it possible for parents / carers to stay in the service while at the same time keeping an eye on their 'tots' while they play.
There is a very active 'lay ministry' at Christ Church and this includes lay members leading services and sharing reflections / preaching / teaching on a Sunday.
