Administrative History:
  • Christ Church was established in east Chelsea in 1839, as a chapel of ease to the overcrowded parish church of Saint Luke's. The church was situated on Paradise Street, later renamed Christchurch Street. A separate parish was formed in 1860. In 1986 this was reversed and the two parishes were merged to form a combined parish called Chelsea, Saint Luke and Christ Church.
