Mission Statement

About Us


St Christopher's Trust is a charity that works together with local churches. The work involved is mainly done by volunteers.


The charity was formed in 1951 for Christian work in the village by a local lady called Emily Clay who lived on Station Road. The main work was based out of St Christophers Hall on Station Road.


Miss Clay donated the hall and the land behind to the Trust. Miss Nora Shoebottom worked for the Turst for 37 years and bequeathed her estate to the Trust to ensure continuation of her work.


The Trust moved from the old hall into the new annexe of Admaston House in 2010 which has enabled an expansion of the work.


Our work currently includes a cafe, toddler groups, bible study groups, Alpha courses, Men's and Ladies groups, youth clubs and the annual  Admaston Fun Week and Holiday Club.












The current part time employees of the Trust are

Dawn Croker, Sharon Johnson and Ruth Watkins.
