Welcome to
Christ Church, High Harrogate
Christ Church, High Harrogate is home to a thriving worshipping community of all ages. It is a centre of Christian worship, learning and fellowship with links across the region and beyond. We are part of the Anglican (Church of England) tradition, but welcome people of all traditions and backgrounds.
We extend a particular welcome to those who are just beginning to explore Christian faith and those who are exploring practising their faith again after many years. On this website you will find a wide range of information about worship, fellowship and learning at Christ Church. 
We are thrilled to announce that we have recently been  registered as a Fairtrade place of worship and we have pledged to use fairly traded products and to promote Fairtrade. We will  continue to support farmers and producers by using tea, coffee and sugar that has been fairly traded, have a stall at least twice a year and incorporate Fairtrade into our worship in prayers and readings whenever possible, particularly during Fairtrade Fortnight.
