Welcome to Christ Church West Wimbledon
Who are we?
Christ Church West Wimbledon is a Church of England congregation, a Christian church, in South-West London, in the Diocese of Southwark.
We are a blend of the traditional and the contemporary, we are an open, inclusive church serving the people of West Wimbledon. In our worship and in our social life we seek to express and share the love of God which is for everyone. We welcome all, regardless of age, ethnicity, sexuality or church background. Exploring together, we journey towards that fullness of life offered to us through Jesus Christ’s self-sacrificing love. A mixture of those who are strong in their faith with others who are filled with questions and doubt, we encourage a willingness to explore our faith and be ready to be surprised by God. Knowing we are loved, we are ready to share our faith with others helping to build peace and justice in the world.
We hope that you find these pages useful and interesting and look forward to seeing you at Christ Church. If you would like to be in touch with us then we would be very pleased to hear from you. Follow the appropriate links to send us an email or to call us.

Green Prayer for Easter 6
Rogationtide has long been a period of fasting and prayer, often marked by a ‘beating of the bounds’ ceremony, when people walk round the parish boundaries and pray for God's blessing on the crops:
“May the Great Gardener landscape our designs; May the Living Water drip-feed our tender crops; May the Gentle Raindrops sprinkle the upturned leaves;
May the Calming Channels irrigate our drying soil; May the Mains of Grace supply our needs and meet our thirst;
And may the God of All bless us and our loved ones with an abundant harvest.”
