4.0
Christ Church with St Ewen (grid reference ST588730) is a Church of England parish church in Broad Street, Bristol, England.


Christ Church was built between 1786 and 1791. The tower appears to have been designed by Thomas Paty who was architect to the vestry, and the body of the church by his son William, and built by Thomas Paty and Sons, replacing a medieval one. The entrance and refurbished interior are by Henry Williams in 1883. The building was restored by Priest-in-charge Rev. G. S. Zimmern in 1973.


On the tower quarter-boy figures strike the quarter hours on the Automaton clock.


It has been designated as a Grade II* listed building.

  • Quick butchers in while open doors for the public, pretty impressive if on a small scale. Right in the centre of town close to St Nicks Market. Friendly and informative volunteers.
  • I really cannot comprehend the negative reviews left for Christ Church. Two stars? Seriously? It is one of the most beautiful historical buildings of Bristol, it houses a wonderful-sounding pipe organ, with its earliest pipework dating back to Renatus Harris, the interior is exquisite and features wonderful acoustics, the music ministry is top-notch, the preaching is solid, and the Liturgy is still celebrated according to the 1662 prayer book. Overall, a wonderful place to be, and highly recommended for recitals and concerts.
