We’re glad you’re here.

We delight in having visitors for worship, education and fellowship. Join us any time at one of our regular Sunday services or many other events during the week. On Sundays, visit our Welcome Center just inside the Rotunda. Look for a friendly “greeter” to answer any questions or point you in the right direction.

Perhaps you are visiting us for the first time online. We understand that people often seek a church during a transition in their lives, such as a move, graduation from college, marriage, birth of a child, illness, or death in the family. Christ Church is here to support and guide you through these life changes. We seek to be your spiritual home.

Throughout the year, there are multiple ways for newcomers to get involved and feel connected to Christ Church. In addition to parish-wide events and opportunities, we have a few that are just for newcomers. Check out these below:

Newcomer Dinners  

Second Wednesday of each month, September through April
5:30 - 7 pm

We invite any and all newcomers for dinner and a chance to meet other newcomers and some of our staff. Each month we will have a speaker who will share a little of what’s going on around Christ Church. Join us for a casual and rewarding evening of fellowship. Free childcare available upon request.

If you have questions, contact Kathryn Saunders, Director of Newcomers and Parish Life.

Starting Point

First Sundays Monthly*
Parlor at 10 am
There will be no meeting in April.

Are you looking to connect or reconnect with the Christ Church community or simply want to know more about worship and other opportunities? Come spend an hour with clergy, staff, and others in the Parlor to discover specific ways to get engaged. This class is ideal for newcomers or anyone wanting to restart their journey. Afterward we invite you to join us for brunch.

Vespers in the Garden

Vespers in the Garden is our annual spring tradition welcoming newcomers to Christ Church. The Hospitality Committee hosts this casual, outdoor event which includes dinner, followed by a lovely candlelight Vespers service accompanied by the Christ Church Choir. We invite all newcomers to join committee members, clergy, staff, and Vestry for this special occasion, which takes place in the beautiful backyard of a nearby parishioner's home.

For more information, contact Kathryn Saunders, Director of Newcomers and Parish Life.
