Welcome to Christ Church!
Early in the Gospel of John we learn the light of God “shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.” (John 1:5) Although we live in challenging times, we must never forget that the light of God continues to shine brightly even in the darkest of nights. Christmas reminds us of the power of God’s grace to transform all pains and sorrows into hopes and joys.
For over 175 years Christ Church has served as a beacon of hope and peace in Bolton. Countless women, men, and children have encountered the living God and found peace and comfort within these walls. Their deep faith and life-giving relationships inspired them to proclaim God’s justice and peace throughout the world. We continue the great work of the generations before us and bring the light of God wherever we go.
And you are welcome here. You are invited to share in the life of our community. There are no special requirements, just a simple invitation to you to come with an open mind and heart. We welcome you to share with us as we learn to live as followers of Jesus.
We are a growing church. There are many opportunities for you to join us, including prayer, worship, children, youth and family events, social events, book and Bible studies, spiritual direction, service and learning opportunities, and so much more. We are here for you as you journey through life.
May God, revealed and made known to us in Jesus Christ, be with you and your loved ones this Christmas season and throughout the year. May God’s blessing be with you always. Happy Christmas!
Pastor and Rector of Christ Church
