Christchurch was built by the Diocesan Architect Richard Phipson at a time when he was engaged in his two greatest works, the restoration of St Peter Mancroft in Norwich, and the complete rebuilding of St Mary le Tower in Ipswich. The construction of this simple Gothic church must have seemed like light relief. Whittington is a suburb of the industrial village of Stoke Ferry, and the increasing population here in the second half of the Victorian period suggested the need for a new church, as it did in the centre of Stoke Ferry itself. The dedication stone on the south side records that it was Dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of the Rev Charles Manners R Norman MA by his devoted widow Caroline Norman AD 1874.
