Isaiah 60 verse 1


Christ Church loves to welcome visitors from across Swindon and further afield. We are a community of all ages and backgrounds, committed to our vision of connecting the wider community to Christ and you are welcome to join us as we share worship, prayer and fellowship together.

Safeguarding. We take safeguarding very seriously at Christ Church with St. Mary’s. Please follow this link to our policy and guidelines.

The Christ Church community is involved in many areas of local life. As well as offering traditional baptism, marriage, memorial and funeral services, we also work in the community providing chaplaincy, prayer ministry, and by making home visits to those unable to travel.

Our grounds provide a place of quiet and solace, for reflection and remembrance. Our Community centre provides fitness and excercise classes, family parties, meetings, art classes and music.

Our Vision

Listen to our Mission & Values

We have a vision that we should be Christ’s Church in the community, serving the needs of local people and becoming a central meeting place for a whole variety of community activities. Our mission is to proclaim Christ through teaching and example. Welcome and serve all, through hospitality. We encourage people to find God through worship, faith and prayer by providing a spiritual home and resources for the local community. We seek to transform Swindon and beyond with God’s hope and compassion.

We do this with humility, grace and respect, listening prayerfully to God and our neighbour.

As well as offering traditional life events like baptism, marriage, blessings, funeral and bereavment services, we host a modern community centre which provides education, leisure, social and entertainment facilities to our community.
