Christ Church, Rouse Hill

Christ Church is a historic church building belonging to Rouse Hill Anglican Church of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney located on Windsor Road, Rouse Hill, in the north-west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Christ Church was built in 1863 and is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Rouse Hill.


The land for the church, ¾ acre in total, was donated by Robert Fitzgerald to the Bishop of Sydney in 1863.[1]

A summary of the history of Christ Church and its buildings, as recorded by Warren et al. (2006) follows:

In recent years, the site has once more become active with construction commencing in 2007 on a new Ministry and Education Centre to be built alongside Christ Church. As part of this project, restoration works were undertaken to Christ Church and the 1908 hall. In March 2008, Rouse Hill Anglican Church moved back to the site from their temporary home at Rouse Hill Anglican College. The Ministry and Education Centre was officially opened on 27 April 2008 by the then Archbishop of Sydney, Dr Peter Jensen. [2]

Current ministry

The current rector is the Rev. Graeme Howells.[3] The church has two services each Sunday.
