About Christ Church
Christ Church Chilwell
Christ Church Chilwell is an Anglican church (part of the Church of England) and belongs within the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. We are part of the Nottingham South Deanery. The Bishop for the Diocese is Paul Williams, who is supported by the Suffragen Bishop, Andy Emmerton.
The church is in the parish of Chilwell which has a population of about 17,000 and we aim to resource both the local community and other churches in terms of premises, time, skills and money.
There are three different services each with it’s own style. The 9 am service is more traditional with hymns, liturgy, and Holy Communion most weeks. The 10.45 am service is family-orientated with children’s groups and regular all-age services. The 6 pm service (Weeks 2, 4 and 5) is more informal with lively worship.
St. Barnabas, Inham Nook
In 1959 Christ Church established St Barnabas, Inham Nook to serve the newly built Inham Nook estate. In many ways, St. Barnabas is the ‘parish church’ of the estate, and around 50% of the congregation live here. We have Revd Jonathan Strickland – the minister in charge (part time), as well as a District Church Council, electoral roll and parish share, although legal responsibility for the church lies with the Vicar and PCC of the Parish of Chilwell.
St. Barnabas is known in the community as ‘the light on the hill’. We offer a warm welcome to everyone. We meet to hear what Jesus told us and seek to follow His teaching in our daily lives.
