Discover our Alabaster and marble WWI memorial and gain an insight into the consecration and opening of the church.
The Church was built in 1881 as a gift to the community from Mr William Roberts of Darleydale and cost £13,000. It was, for many years, known as ‘Christ Church-in-the-fields’ due to its placement in a semi-rural setting.
Come and see the beautiful alabaster and marble WW1 memorial. This was erected in the early 1920s in the form of a reredos in the late Arts and Crafts style. Victorian records and documents recently obtained giving an insight into the consecration and opening of the church in 1882.
The church has a 2-manual organ of 37 speaking stops built by JJ Binns of Leeds. It was brought to Christ Church in 1981 and rebuilt in a new case at the West end. Come and see the beautiful alabaster and marble WWI commemorative reredos and our newly-renovated clock. Disabled access Christ Church will be open during the Sunday morning service 1100 to 1230 and visitors are welcome to the service.
