Christ Church Gipsy Hill

Gipsy Hill, London SE19

Christ Church is a Church of England parish church located in Gipsy Hill, between Dulwich and Crystal Palace. We are a diverse family – different ages, cultures and personalities – that is reflective of an area that is constantly changing. We have been one of the most challenged parishes in South London in terms of Indicators of Multiple Deprivation, but attract people from across all social demographics.

Our core aims are to:

 build up a worshipping community of faith in God that is welcoming to all

 equip and encourage one another to live our daily lives as disciples of Jesus Christ

 serve God, in the power of the Holy Spirit, in our church, our communities and our world


We have a vibrant ministry among children and young people in our church that is well resourced and supported by a committed team of volunteers, offering three groups on a Sunday morning for children along with a crèche and two groups for teenagers. This sits alongside a range of social and community activities, including a hugely popular toddler group on two mornings a week. More information is available on our website - gipsyhill.org.uk.
