I’m New!

 ‘I’m new – what do I need to know?’

If you’ve never been to Christ Church before but are thinking of coming along – great! We’d love to see you there! If you’d like to know more about the vision for the church, please click here: Vision for People. In terms of practicalities, there are a few useful things that might be helpful when considering coming to Christ Church:


We usually have two services on Sunday mornings; a more Traditional Service at 9:00am, and more Contemporary Worship at 10.30am. Both services last roughly an hour. When Covid restrictions allow, we serve tea, coffee and nibbles between the two services, although sadly that’s not possible at the moment.


Christ Church is nestled just outside Chester city centre in Newtown. You can find us just off Gloucester Street, Newtown, Chester CH1 3HR. For more details, please click here: 

Parking Information

Parking in Newtown itself is tricky during the week, but is fine on a Sunday – parking regulations for the streets around the church are only in effect from 3pm on a Sunday.

Beyond that, there is paid car parking in the Brook Street Car Park 2 minutes walk from the church.

Kids’ Ministry

If you’re likely to be coming along with little ones, that’s not a problem! We have a range of age groups that meet during part of the Sunday services if they’d like to join them. We run three groups during our 10.30am Sunday Service: Gems (ages 2-6 ); Rocksolid (ages 7-9); and The Crypt (aged 10+). For more information, please click here.

Leadership Team

We have a vicar, Graham Shaw, who leads the church, but the church wouldn’t run without a vast number of volunteers who make church happen. If you are looking to speak to someone specifically, please click here.
