Caring + Challenging + Living + Growing

 

Welcome to Christ Church, part of the team parish of Mortlake with East Sheen. 

We aim to be a family friendly and inclusive church welcoming everyone and providing a space in which people can explore faith and ask questions. You can find details of our services, our children’s groups and other activities by scrolling down this page or using the Menu above.  Follow our Twitter feed or Facebook page links at the top of this page and scroll down to see photos or videos of recent events.  

An early work of the architect Arthur Blomfield, the church building, which is in stone, was erected between 1862 and 1864. It was built on farmland at the entrance of East Sheen Common. It was originally planned to be opened in April 1863; however, the tower collapsed shortly before completion and had to be rebuilt. The church was finally completed and consecrated nine months later, on 13 January 1864. The church has been Grade II listed with English Heritage since 1983.

Christ Church is usually open every day from 9.00am to around 5.00pm to pray, contemplate or just to sit in peace. Scroll to the bottom of the page to check our location. On Saturday mornings we have  a Welcome Cafe from 10.30am – 12.30pm in church: do drop in for a chat or to look around our beautiful building.

At Christ Church we take our responsibility to safeguard children, young people and vulnerable adults extremely seriously. If you have any safeguarding concerns or would like to know more about our safeguarding procedures you can find the contact details of the relevant people here

You can find the Diocesan Safeguarding Policies and procedures here

In common with other churches in the Diocese of Southwark, we have a Mission Action Plan which is reviewed regularly. You can read our plan here. As a church we are committed to inclusion and social justice and many of our members are active in local community groups.

If you live in the area of the parish covered by the church (you can click here to check) we hope you will feel we are “your” church and we are always happy to talk with you about a wedding, baptism or funeral in church or any other matter which concerns you.
