Outreach and Mission

Our mission is to reach out and serve the world.

We have a rich history of working hand-in-hand with local agencies to provide meaningful outreach opportunities that make a difference in our community. We’ve been blessed to play a role in the creation of groups such as Habitat for Humanity, Crisis Assistance Ministry, and Charlotte Family Housing. We’re proud to continue supporting many others.

On a global level, we’ve established a strong relationship with the Diocese of Costa Rica by helping build childcare centers and even a church.

Along with providing monetary support to agencies, we seek to equip our parishioners to be servant leaders in our city, our nation and our world. We provide opportunities for all ages to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. 

Current Outreach Opportunities

On the Table CLT (OTT): is an initiative to encourage people from varying backgrounds and perspectives to come together and learn from one another. Supported by the Knight Foundation and Leading on Opportunity, this is the third year that conversations will be hosted around Charlotte. This year's theme is "Finding Home: Where do I Belong?" OTT is about making an intentional choice to un-segregate ourselves from our usual limited range of connections and engage in sharing and listening. The goal is not to come to agreement or even consensus. The goal is to open ourselves to other perspectives and inspire people to civic action that helps change our community for the benefit of all.

Christ Church will host a dinner this year on October 23, 5:30 - 6:30 PM as a part of OTT. We will have limited seating in the Green Room. You can sign up here. Plan to arrive by 5:20 PM. We are looking for two more table hosts to help lead the conversation (guide material is provided). Let Laura Konitzer know if you are interested. We encourage you to invite someone you don't know well, or whom has a different set of life experiences. There will also be many other locations around the city with conversations throughout the day in case this one doesn't fit your schedule. Check the website for a listing.

Hurricane Dorian Relief: We continue to pray for those who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian. We pray especially for those who have lost their lives and for their loved ones, and for those who have lost their homes and livelihoods. In addition, we pray for the 60 students at St. Augustine’s College , an Episcopal HBCU in Raleigh, who call the Bahamas their home as they await news of their families. And we pray for those who are already working to bring relief to those who are in desperate situations. 

The most effective way you can help is to give to Episcopal Relief and Development. Go to www.episcopalrelief.org to donate. To help the students at St. Augustine’s specifically, you can donate to the Diocese of NC via Paypal at www.dionc.org. The open plate offering from Sunday, September 8 will be split evenly between these two sites. Thanks to your generosity, we are sending nearly $1400 to each organization.

Men's Shelter Volunteers: Christ Church has an ongoing commitment to the Men's Shelter of Charlotte to serve dinner at the Statesville Avenue location. We are currently looking for volunteers to serve over the next several months. This is a great way for individuals or families to make an impact on the Charlotte community. To sign up or for more information, visit  www.christchurchcharlotte.org/shelter.
