Welcome to 

Christ Church

Christ Church Cockermouth

Christ Church Cockermouth is a group of ordinary people bound together by our love of Jesus and commitment to serve him in Cockermouth and the surrounding area.

In addition to our Sunday services we host our Parish Messy Church and share our lives together over coffee, at Messy Church, our book club, walking group, monthly coffee morning and together at New Wine and many more. Christ Church is a vibrant modern church which enjoys trying new ideas that bring colour and inspiration into our traditional services using sound, video and symbols making services more interactive and involving.

Time and Talents Survey

Through September we are discovering our talents and thinking about the time we offer as volunteers across our church activities. If you attend Christ Church we would love you to fill in a Time and Talents Form and send it back to us.

The Time and Talents Form can be completed electronically using the edit electronically feature in the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and emailed back to Gareth or printed and handed to Gareth, Anne, Cath or Bill.

Our Vision 

Where faith grows we will be …...
more inviting of our communities,
more connected to each other,
more touched by inspired worship and
more involving of families and children.

We will develop buildings that provide accessible, comfortable, exciting and reflective places for all to discover God’s love.
