Christ Church (grid reference ST571739) is a Church of England parish church in Clifton, Bristol, England.

The church was built in 1841 by Charles Dyer. The steeple, which reaches 65 metres (213 ft), was built in 1859 by John Norton, and the aisles in 1885 by William Basset Smith.[1]

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[2] A replica of the church exists in Thames Town, a suburb of Shanghai built in a style imitative of English architecture.[3]
