The church is a centre of worship for the people of Coalville and holds regular services every weekend and throughout the week. 'Christ church may not
be oldest or prettiest church in Leicestershire' says the warden, 'but it is a thriving church and has some interesting memorials'.
Christ Church was built between 1836 and 1838, with a west tower, large nave, transepts, chancel and vestry added later in 1936. The naive is very spacious with a high roof and ornate design inlaid. The chancel has a large east window with some stained glass from 1875, there is also a large organ built into the east wall of the chantry
The vestry has two gravestones to James Stephenson (brother to the great engineer George Stephenson) and his daughter who died aged only fourteen.
The building itself with its large open naive is spacious and worth a visit.
