Christ Church, Aughton, is a parish church with an evangelical ministry set in the market town of Ormskirk, 14 miles north of Liverpool on the West Lancashire plain. Their parish of about 8500 is residential with no less than four schools (including our own church primary school) and because half the parish is greenbelt, several farms. An Anglican church, they belong to the diocese of Liverpool and the deanery of Ormskirk. The church building, sited on the A59 halfway between Liverpool and Preston, has a distinctive tower. As this is the highest point in West Lancashire, it can be seen for miles around – and heard, too, when the bell ringers exercise their ministry. In 2017 the 150th anniversary of the foundation of Christ Church was celebrated.
