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.

Green Prayer– Third Sunday of Advent
“Dear God, we pray for another way of being, another way of knowing. Across the difficult terrain of our existence we have attempted to build a highway and in so doing have lost our footpath. Lord, lead us to that footpath. Lead us where, in simplicity, we may move at the speed of natural creatures and feel the earth's love beneath our feet. Nothing can be loved at speed. Father, lead us to the slow path, to the joyous insights of the pilgrim - another way of being, another way of knowing.” Amen.
