The parish was established in 1856 and 5 years later built its first frame church. The present stone building was completed in 1876. In 1909, the bell tower, parish hall and connecting hallway were added.
The church has 4 stained glass windows that are made up of broken stained glass from churches bombed in World War 2. They serve as a memorial for Canadian men and women who served overseas. Shown is detail from a window made from the glass from Chichester Cathedral.
Christ Church is in a 2 point parish with St James, Fairmount, RR #4, Meaford. Rector is the Rev. Gary Parker.
