Originally built as a chapel of ease in 1850, Christ Church has had a varied history and values its tradition, yet we are also a new parish, having been reformed in 2008 when the United Parish of Penrith became a team ministry. This puts us in the unique position of being an established congregation in a new parish, valuing our tradition yet eager to move ahead.
In 2011, Christ Church underwent a major restructuring and the central two rows of old Victorian pews were removed and replaced with comfortable seating which can easily be moved to create different environments for worship or to provide an open area in the centre of the church. The church was also fitted with and new, efficient, under floor heating system.
Christ church is a comfortable, warm space for worship and gatherings of all types.
