"So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead"

1 Peter 1:6

In a beautiful setting, high on the hill above Parbold village, Christ Church is well worth a visit. It is a warm, friendly, welcoming church with services and activities for all age groups. Whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on the journey of faith, there is a place for you here

>>>Important Notice<<<

The current national and Church of England guidance on face covering is that 'we strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from Coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.' 

Worship for Sunday 27th September

Circumstances continue to change! We’ve been monitoring the local virus situation closely and have decided, for the safety of all, to pause our services at both All Saints and Christ Church until the situation changes.


The morning services on Sunday 27th September & then 11th October onwards will be pre-recorded and available to download and emailed as before, until further notice.

Promoting A Safer Church

Safe guarding children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of everyone. It is central to our mission and ministry as a church and Diocese. 


At Christ Church we have a robust and thorough approach to the protection of young people and vulnerable adults. As a parish, we have adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.

Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church which can be downloaded here. Download

Details of our parish safeguarding officer can be found in our ‘Safeguarding in our Parish – who’s who’ which can be downloaded here Download

We have also displayed the Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within our church this can also be downloaded here Download

All those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.

Reporting a concern

Any safeguarding concerns in a parish should be brought to the attention of your local Parish Safeguarding Officer(s) (PSO) in the first instance, who can seek further advice from Sharon Hassall, the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA), as necessary. 

Safeguarding concerns in a school/university/prison/healthcare setting should be raised with the relevant organisation's Safeguarding team. If the concern involves one of our chaplains, please also contact Sharon Hassall direct.
