Meaningful Worship + Creative Learning + Passionate Service
In an Historic Setting
Welcome. Whether you have been to Christ Church many times or whether you have just discovered us, we are delighted that you are here. For over three hundred years Christ Church has been known as a place to deepen your relationship with God, nurture a sense of community, and make an impact on the world.
As the Rector, I am firmly committed to three goals: Worship that is dynamic and meaningful; Learning that is creative and engaging, and Service, that passionately spills out into the community and world beyond. Many have found respite, sustenance, and personal challenge within our walls, but there are many ways one can connect with us even from a distance. My hope and prayer is that you will find a place here too.
Peruse our website; I am certain you will find just the right thing for you and your family. And do contact us; I would be happy to begin a lifelong conversation with you.
