Christ Church, Gentleshaw is situated at southern edge of Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to Castle Ring, an Iron Age Hill Fort, which has the distinction of being the highest point on the Chase. Christ Church serves as the Parish Church for the “semi-urban” village of Cannock Wood and the more rural adjacent village of Gentleshaw which have a combined population of around 1750 people.
The original church building was erected in 1837 as Chapel of Ease for the neighbouring parish of Longdon and you will find details of its development and history on the History Page of the website.
Because of its location Christ Church has the “honour” of being the only church in the Diocese which actually looks down on the Cathedral which can be seen from the rear of the churchyard.
Christ Church Gentleshaw is in the Deanery of Lichfield, in the Archdeaconry of Lichfield and in the Episcopal Area of Wolverhampton.
