Christ Church, Lancaster - Church of England
Christ Church, on Lancaster Moor, is a fine specimen of building in the Romanesque style of architecture, with two spires at the west end. This church was erected in 1856, by Samuel Gregson, Esq., to meet the spiritual wants of the inhabitants on the east side of the town. The view from it is said to be equal to that of St. Mary's. It will accommodate 750 persons, and the population of the ecclesiastical district, in 1911, amounted to 12,000. The west window of stained glass was put in by the parishioners on the occasion of the jubilee of the church. The windows in the south aisle are all of stained glass, executed by Messrs. Shrigley & Hunt, of Lancaster.
Christ Church is said to be one of the prettiest churches in the north of England, largely owing to the generosity of the Vicar and of the late Vicar, Canon Bartlett. The vicarage is situated in East road. There is also a Chapel-of-East, in Dale street, dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Rev. M. K. Cooper, Vicar.
