Welcome to christ church

A parish church in the Anglican Diocese of Chester, England

Christ Church forms the focus for the parish, and our worship Sunday by Sunday. We aim to be a worshipping community faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to spread the gospel and make disciples. We want to be a community that cares; concerned for those who live around us and around the globe.

The church has been used continually for worship since 1849. It was extended in Victorian times, given a new roof in 1992, and had its imposing spire rebuilt after storm damage on Christmas Eve 1997. We have parish rooms ‘downstairs’ entered from Bessborough Road, used regularly for both church and community activities.

The church is usually open on Saturday mornings between 10 and 11.30am. Please feel free to visit us then, or join us at 10.30am for Sunday worship.


Christ Church Birkenhead takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We commit ourselves to the nurture, protection and safe keeping of all, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults. As part of our commitment to this, the Parish Church Council has appointed Mrs Jackie Harness as safeguarding officer. She can be contacted via the church office. We have adopted and adhere to the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. The Parish Safeguarding Handbook will be found on the Contacts & Information page. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding. If you have specific safeguarding concerns, you will find useful contact information at www.chester.anglican.org/social-responsibility/safeguarding.
